Hi and welcome to the first of two posts today.  This is my DT piece for Pixels and Paper. When you look at our inspiration picture, you might be counting sheep!
I've used the colours and wool of the sheep from the inspiration picture to come up with this quirky page.

The background on white cardstock has been stencilled using neon inks with gesso scraped over them and while damp given a light spritz with some Perfect Pearls mist. This is a second generation print, hence the 'bleeding' of the pattern.

The sheep was drawn onto white laser print card and coloured using Lyra Aquarelle crayons. Added to this was cotton wool, tiny knitting needles and wool being knitted into a very special banner.

Cotton wool has also been glued onto laser card which was firstly smooshed  with Radiant Neon inks using sunset colours. This was also repeated on the cotton wool (used a paintbrush dabbed onto the ink pads).

The sunset was one taken in late winter last year, again from the front yard.  The layout has been given some random stamping using a stamp I carved into a small eraser.
Pop on over to  to have a look at our very different picture and also to see what the rest of the team has done. This is also the first piece for three new team members as well.
Thank you for dropping by. Catch you again soon. Cheers, Di
