Bush-wacked …..

......... We’ve just had a few wonderful days getting back to nature. Hearing the crickets and swatting bugs and then hearing them big fellas, LION but not actually seeing them! Disappointing but then ……. nature does not perform on the command! The Bushveld is very dry. The rains had not yet made an appearance. The Impala females hold back on producing their young until the first rains! We saw many very heavily pregnant buck! And we were hoping for rain just so that they could be relieved of their burden. It didn’t happen while we were there! Nature has its own time!

Hilda and Sam over at Lots To Do announced their next challenge using a stamp, metal and paint (not necessarily in that order)

So this is my offering!

The base on my 4 X 4 was scrunched up tin foil. Does tin foil constitute metal? I couldn’t take the chance and so added the metal flourish! Then, upon reading a magazine my dearest SIL brought for me from the UK, a technique jumped out and bit me on the nose (i.e. I hadn’t tried it before now) acetate, glue, alcohol inks and cling wrap.
The image is from June over at Art Freebies (thanks June) I smeared Vaseline over the parts I didn’t want paint on, then painted the whole picture with acrylic paint and when dry, wiped the paint off the image. A bit messy but that’s why kitchen roller towel was invented LOL and then I stamped Daydreams a few times in black and white.

Take care everyone and keep creating and as always, thank you for visiting.
