Woodware UK: BAAAAAck in the North Yorkshire Countryside

This week the Woodware team have been challenged to post something "Inspired by the Countryside", so I chose the North Yorkshire countryside that I fell in love with on a few of my visits to England...in particular...the sheep! Rolling hills of green with much cuter sheep than we have here in the States.

I created a simple canvas, which would be darling in a child's bedroom or playroom. I divided it off with bright blue and green acrylic paints. Once those were dried, I paste-embossed the Dreamweaver Open Sheep with Glossy White Paste, which I then used the tip of my palette knife to "fluff up" the paste. To create the large cloud, I paste-embossed the Dreamweaver Zen Flower partially at the top of my canvas, and used the tip of the palette knife "fluff" it up as well.

When dry, I used markers to add "grass" and shading, and blue crystals for the eyes. ( Yes, I know, Yorkshire sheep do not have blue eyes! Poetic license here.) I had some chipboard alphabet letters that I painted in green more for balance of design, than for sheep-speak.
