Phew, there’s already been a flurry of activity this month for STAMPtember! I keep a summary at the bottom of my posts this month, where I try to keep track of what has been happening. It is today’s much-awaited turn of Altenew for their STAMPtember collaboration with Simon Says Stamp. I have always loved Altenew’s flowers, and this Beautiful Lily set doesn’t disappoint.

You know me and flowers – I can’t resist! I know there are some lovely pink lilies, but I adore white ones. However, white flowers can be hard to paint, but if you create a darker background, you don’t need to put much work into making the white flowers appear on a white background. This technique, where you paint around an area in order to highlight it is called Negative Painting.
I painted around the flowers with water and added lots of green and blue paints and water to create bleeds and blends. I even popped some salt granules while the paint dried to create a textured background.
STAMPtember is a hectic month with new releases virtually every day of the month. To help keep you informed of what is going on and what has sold out, I will finish my emails in September with a list detailing each day’s events. I hope this helps keep you up to date. It certainly helps to keep me on track!
