Oils & boats

I had some messy fun saturday & today! I dug my old oil pastels out, it's been a while since they had seen the light of day :-(

I wanted to explore some ideas using Ellen Vargo as my inspiration so without further ado here is what I came up with using my oil pastels, acrylic paint stamping, archival stamping, a black Sharpie & a white MARVY Reminisce pen

I outlined the white flowers with a Spectrum Noire pen as the sharpie was having a hissy fit at the time!

The jade flowers have been stamped with a sparkly paint but I could not capture it :-(

I outlined the white flowers with a brown liner on this sheet.

And last but least I'm sharing my Jolly boat for every inchie Monday

  1. WOW Sally, I adore those pages, absolutely sensational. You have inspired me to try. Love your inchie too, it reminds me of a crab fishing boat from Cromer.

  2. Sally, those pages look fantastic, sounds like you had a fun day. Love the little inchie as well.
