Foggy morning

Welcome to my first inspiration post for Country View Challenges. The theme this month, chosen by the lovely Sue, is Bokeh.


The effect I was after was a foggy early morning. I used Picture this stamps to build my port scene (Fisherman's wharf and Captain's Cottages) at low tide an used both Distress Oxide and classic Distress inks to colour the scene. The D.O being slightly opaque allowed me to push the houses further into the background whilst the looks closer.

For the Bokeh effect, I stencilled circles with Distress Oxide in white pigment ink and Gesso .

I do hope you will join us at Country View Challenges this month, I can't wait to see your makes with Bokeh! Plus, there's a £20 voucher to win...

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the SSS Wednesday challenge.

  7. Just brilliant - I think this may be my favourite bokeh so far! The blue tones already give that sense of distance to the delightful streetscape in the background, and your stencilled bokeh bubbles are amazing... so clever to get the different opacities with your different white mediums. One for the notebook...
