Lovely As a Tree – A serene scene

This serene scene is the final project from my Lovely As a Tree Papercrafting Class. It’s also a design I’ve used before, but have updated to include new colours and ribbons.

We begin by stamping the trees first at different heights using first and second generation images. It’s good to make sure that there is a tree that is higher than the others to use as a feature.

Next, punch a circle from a sticky-note to create a mask and place it over the feature tree.

Then it’s fun with sponge daubers and different blues to create the sky. This project uses Pool Party, Balmy Blue and Pacific Point for the sky with Night of Navy for the stamping. When you’re happy with the depth of colour, remove the mask.

The flock of birds from High Tide flying across the sky completes the scene.

A strip of Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon and a knotted length of Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine pull all of the colours together.
