Hidden LanePosted: August 31, 2015
Hidden Lane is a new scenic stamp which easily will transition from season to season. I chose autumn for my first stamping with it but I know I will reach for it when creating wintry and perhaps spring scenes also. I did the colouring for this little scene with several different mediums; the sky and grass were painted with watercolour paints, the trees and foreground were a combination of distress stains and bister and final details were added with watercolour pencils. The watercolour paper had been splattered with some masking fluid which gives the whole scene a slightly aged look. I think the sentiment which was probably intended for Christmas works equally well for Autumn which is a wonderful time of year and very beautiful where I live. Not that I’m wishing for it; as I’ve said before summer can stay as long as it likes!
