No Filter!

Hi GoGo peeps!
Madie here to share my layout for October. My technique this month is brush lettering!
Selfie Madie
I’m not the best at this particular technique but practice makes perfect!
I’ve found that I prefer to use a larger flat brush rather than the smaller tipped brushes.
I did a couple of practice runs before committing to my white card and I’ve found plenty of watery paint helps, I like the Prima watercolours and find they stay quite vibrant when dry.
When my ‘selfie’ word was dry I used a small short point paint brush and outlined the letters to tidy them up, splattered some paint to bring it all together.
I backed the white card with some patterned paper which I gutted to layer the photo. Embellished with some puffy stickers. Added ‘no filter’ with a black pen and all done!
It was a brave photo! 1.I am wearing red, which is a colour I am not comfortable wearing and 2.Not a scrap of make up on….
Hope this inspires you to keep practicing those brush strokes.
