I love Linda’s artwork and have started to collect the Messy stamps. I don’t do much stamping but Linda has injected the enthusiasm with her drawings and her help with colouring the images. Such a talented lady and the tutorials on your blog are so helpful.

Congratulations to you Carol – please get in contact with details so I can send the prize off
It`s so exciting seeing who`s won against generated numbers – well done – still lots more prizes to be won and the very nature of the draws I can`t help it if someone wins more than once – it`s all the luck of the draw
Linda Hill is the ARTIST
behind Messy Rabbit and made
Joanna Sheen`s ideas and stories she once told come to life with
the design now stamps and paper pads and also cd`s too
Here is a piece about Linda from the section she kindly has on my blog
Click for details of Linda`s techniques and about her
I feel very honoured to have this section on the blog and I have been inspired by many of the workshops Linda has done as my first colouring with Promarkers wasn`t to hot till I followed the workshops
I set about staring this year wanted to add something to my crafting and learning more about colouring was it – so i`m thrilled so far with the joy it has brought me and the thanks has to go to Linda for showing the way
Full Messy Rabbits products – click here
I adore this messy Rabbit and when Joanna & Linda were featured in the world of cross stitching with a pattern for this Messy Rabbit I just had to stitch it as cross stitching is how I got into crafting and card making
Linda as an artist comes up with these stunning backing papers and I love them to pieces – so much detail within them yet lovely and fresh
and I thought it apt to add this today as Joanna will be on C&C today with the launch of the Messy Rabbit Christmas Stamps & Paper pads
So Promakers- a joy to work with and full details of the whole range here
And another STUNNING product Linda uses for the colouring of Messy Rabbit and the paper pads – product details here
Linda has kindly done this workshop for my Birthday Week and i`m so excited about adding it – so here it is
A Messy Rabbit Nativity Scene -Workshop
Specially painted for this blog giveaway week and a chance to win it – now that`s fantastic !!! – thank you Linda
Thing`s you`ll need to create a picture.
water colour paper
Lyra water colour crayons + Terry Harrison shadow colour
Mask off the sides of water colour paper this gives a nice clean edge to your painting .
I decide where I want my images in picture then stamp ,
the Shepard’s I used a mirror stamp to reverse the image. if I miss stamp! I use pencil to fill in gaps. with using smokey grey ink pad the lead in pencil is a very good match.you can hardly tell .
Using pencil I draw little lines to indicate where the sand will be and joins all images together back ground ,middle ground and finally for ground. picture is ready to paint.
Sky first! get all you sky colours mixed ready be-for you start.
Then wet all sky area with clean water then add you paint while its still wet this will help to blend them all together . you can take out paint with tissue or sponge to make clouds. leave to dry.
sand…. start with very light shade of yellow and paint the part with palm trees gradually increasing the colour of paint to your sand mix to get different shades of same colour making the darkest at front in for ground. leave to dry or if you want to crack on give it a blast with hair dryer don’t worry if your paper buckles it will once completely dry it will go flat again.
Paint in your figures in the colours of your choice… then go in to do shadows that’s the best part it brings everything to life. don’t be scared of this shadow colour it adds depth and dimension to your work……..
peel of the masking tape carefully away from the painting so it doesn’t tear your picture. there you have your final work of art……….
hope you will have a go at this little work shop its great fun! do try and don’t be frightened its just a piece of paper and some paint…. happy stamping happy painting hugs love linda xxx
Thank you so much Linda for this I know I will be trying
