Hmmmmm, well this was a tricky one..........use some ephemera from your week!!!!
I was certainly challenged as, although we do lots of walking and a little socialising (just a little) we rarely do anything that would result in any kind of ephemera. I didn't want to resort to using a weekly supermarket receipt, simply because there isn't anything exciting about that either and I've got the bug with painting these little guys so that played a part in my decision too.
Anyway, as we are big fans of walking, we had just so happened to have bought Tony a new pair of walking boots last Sunday so I struck on the idea of having a go at drawing and painting a walking boot..........strange but true!!
Here is the result:
I used a combination of acrylics and ink and used embossing paint to raise the laces and silver hooks to give a little dimension. The work Walk has also been covered in an embossing gel to give it a raised finish. I cut round the top of the boot and inserted the receipt.
Here's a closer pic:
On another note, here's a quick pic from our walk on Tuesday. Our local deer park had loads of deer roaming around so I practiced again with the borrowed Canon and took these:
Catch up later!
