Good morning day-trippers. Stuart here. With Steven of course. We’ve quite enjoyed being your tour guides this week, and we’re especially excited to spend one more exciting day in Hawaii. A special thanks to everyone who has joined us on the day-trips this week. We’ve loved every minute of it and have been thrilled to see all your artwork and read all your comments. Cracking stuff. So thanks for engaging with us. We did the day trips so we could keep you company, but really, you kept us company, so thanks so much. What a great community feel Barbara has cultivated through the SHAC Shack, hey?!
Just to be different, and because we love to celebrate together, let’s start with the results of yesterdays competition. My favourite artist is in fact, Mondrian. And you ALL knew that it seems. A couple of you mentioned Theo Van Doesburg – I wondered if you thought Mondrian was just too obvious an answer – but I’m impressed by the knowledge. So…
Congratulations SU HAMPSON!
Please email email@example.com with your address, and we’ll pop a little something in the post to you. It’s Dutch themed, of course. And it’s now discontinued. We only have one left in the whole building, so you’re getting a real collectable Clarity rarity, now!
Well, since it’s nearly time to set off, let’s take a look at the artwork you’ve sent in from the Netherlands yesterday.
Do keep sending your artwork in. The day-trips might be coming to an end, but the blog isn’t! We’ll still be writing the daily posts and we’re happy to showcase your artwork – whatever theme it’s on – in any of our posts. Not just happy to, we’d love to. If you have any Hawaii art, we’ll post another little gallery on Monday’s blog. But do send us anything else you’ve created using Clarity products to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post that when we can!
So, let’s crack on with our exotic day-trip! Hawaii here we come. As usual, you can use the links below to view the playlists on YouTube And Facebook.
Don’t forget to take your free template download with you, and enjoy catching up with the videos, revisiting the tutorials and practising some of those colouring techniques to perfection. One technique in particular which I thought was especially clever was the colouring in of the hibiscus flower and leaves. Adding that yellow wash over the top really helped to change the hue of the green, giving the colours a real retro photo look – the kind you get from a vintage postcard. Well worth re-watching, that bit.
I also thought we’d do one more competition, because, well, why not? It’s our last day-trip. So we thought we’d finish in style.
Want to be in for the chance to win a pack of Waimea Falls Designer 5×7 Card? Simply answer the question below and enter by commenting on this post. I’ll pick a winner at random and announce in Monday’s blog.
Q: What are the little garlands/wreaths that are traditionally worn in Hawaii? (TIP: Barb mentioned in one of her stories that she got given one at the airport because they lost her luggage).
And, last (and probably least, in this instance), but because some of you asked…
That’s all from us. Thanks for spending the week with us and keep on commenting and sharing your pics.
Over and out. Stuart and Steven.
