Hello bellas, Amy here with a new Scenic Saturday card to share. Life has gotten hectic and a bit stressful for me lately so when I started flipping through my stash of Stamping Bella stamps for today this peaceful looking Yoga Mochi Girl totally captured my imagination. I envy how zenned out and relaxed she appears to be so creating this scene was a good reminder to make time for myself now and then. I started off by coloring Mochi girl and sort of did a zentangle technique on her top with three aqua colored Copics, filling in the spaces left between the lines with a black marker. I think it turned out quite stylish, LOL! Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Good Vibes sentiment set so that I could color around it making it appear to be a poster hanging on the studio wall. Finally, it was time to tackle the yoga studio. I knew that I wanted it to be light and bright and super calming so I sketched in large floor to ceiling windows on either side of Mochi Girl allowing me plenty of space to add a tranquil zen garden in the distance. Using a Copic colorless blender to add some “shine” on the windows not only helps to create the illusion of a glass pane being there but they also create direction lines that subtly lead the viewers eye right to the star of the show. The end result is a pleasant yet empowering message that would brighten any friend’s day. 🙂
Stay crafty my friends!
