If you missed my post of our awesome day out at the mens' singles finals you can read it here. For those of you who did not recognize the celebs I took photos of in the Royal Box...Kate and William in the first photo are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ie next in line to the throne after Prince Charles. The next is of Bjorn Borg, in the pale blue suit (a previous supreme Wimbledon champion in the 70s), Boris Becker next (another amazing previous champion in the 80s) and the last is of Benedict Cumberbatch, actor, of Sherlock Holmes fame...yes I know I only caught a side view)
I had decided before we left for Wimbledon on Sunday morning that I would try to capture some photos of when New balls are ordered...and I did!
Strawberries had to feature so I made a small masterboard which I used to die cut New "balls".
I used this photo as my focal.
I was able to wear my new charm for a few weeks before Wimbledon and of course I wore it on Finals' day. I went to look at the Links charms in the Wimbledon shop and not only had they sold out in the first day or so of the championship but everyone wanted to have mine, which I was proudly wearing.
So back to my N for New page. I know you enjoy seeing my process so here is what I got up to in my studio.
I chose my "Wimbledon colours" distress inks and also some archival inks. I looked through my stencils and selected some which looked like balls and nets to me . I also have an ancient wooden strawberry stamp (I think it's PSX..remember them?) I also have a great Stampendous Love prose stamp.
Once I was happy with my stencilled background I added a few strawberries (of course!)
Then it was time to put on my creative hat.......

Thanks for visiting today and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. The rain still keeps making an appearance among the sunshine here. Let's hope we start to get some sustained sunshine soon. We enjoyed a lovely day out at Uppton, a National Trust property yesterday. The weather was very kind and the rain held off until our drive home.... and yes my trusty camera came along.
Bye for now,
