Savanna Stamping Retreat - Peaceful Meadow

I did this scene at the Savanna, Illinois Stamping Retreat. I was trying a new method of making the clouds that I had been thinking about for a while. I first stamped the images using Stampscapes stamps. Then I tore the sticky part of post-it notes into cloud shapes and adhered them onto the sky to mask the cloud shapes. I stippled dye inks with stipple brushes onto the sky and grassy area. I added colour to the trees with markers. Then I removed the cloud masks and added a little grey colour to the bottom of the clouds.
I had such a great time at the retreat!  :D

This looks just like the foothills of the Sierra Mountains in California right around April/May...just when the hills are starting to turn brown. Good job! :)
