Clearly Besotted August Release- Part 4

August 4, 2017 at 9:00 am 7 comments

Hi there!

Welcome to any of you who are new here. It’s the final day (for the moment) for my projects using the latest Clearly Besotted August release.

This card is all about the Peacock using the perfectly titled Strut Your Stuff stamp set. When I saw these peacocks, I imagined one of them holding a balancing pole and walking confidently over the city skyline on a rope wire.

I’ve used the Scene It set to create the backdrop- loosely colouring it at the bottom and using alcohol markers to give some perspective.

Had I thought well enough about the whole scene, I’d have added the rope wire at an angle across the page. The horizontal line is too exact and doesn’t add depth to the picture.

The adorable guy was coloured in Prismacolors and I cut into his hands with a craft knife and slotted the pole into them. The sentiment was spot on for the scene and he looks proud as a peacock (ahemm..) to be doing so well. His balance is perfect and with the right poise he’ll make it all the way over without falling off!

I do hope you’ve had a good look at the new sets here and have had a little inspiration from the lovely Design Team plus Stephanie & Jenny.

I’ve loved creating with the sets; these stamps always give me the craziest ideas!

Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week!

    Holy cow…this reminds me of that movie, The Walk, about Phillippe Petit wire walking between the Twin Towers. Think Joseph Gordon-Levitt was cast to play him. Only you would come up with something so completely unique, clever and beautifully executed. Wonder what goes on in that mind of yours on a daily basis? Hmmmmm?

    This is adorable! I saw these little peacocks today while looking for something else and had to have them!

    Cute little chap. Looks like he’s got balancing off to a tee!
