I am one of those people that links a song to everything. So when I got to play with this amazing Groove Tool (by Momenta) I of course cued up "Groovin'...on a Sunday afternoon" in my head as I painted.
I absolutely loved working with this little gem! And although it has many functions - sanding, inking, distressing and painting - I only used it for painting with some stencils for this post.
But oh-- I just know I will be using it again and again!
So on to the project...
I began by using a little 5"x7" canvas I had created with packing tape from my ®GelliPlate when I was cleaning it. Since the canvas had lots of gold and a bit of teal, I stuck with that color palette.
Nothing but tape so far.
I grabbed the Lila stencil by Lizzy Mayne and laid it on the canvas and used some teal paint with the Groove Tool. woohoo! It was fun, easy and so quick and neat!
I repeated the process with brown paint and the Warped Holes stencil, also by Lizzy Mayne.
I purposely went only around the edges because I wanted space to draw. Using my stabilo MarksAll Pencil I sketched in a bee on the left side of the canvas.
I then added in Maria McGuire's Tiny Medallion stencil in the bottom right corner; first with brown and then with gold.
And then, I had to had the phrase "Don't worry Bee Happy" which I did with the help of Carolyn Dube's Vintage Typewriter stencil in lowercase.
And that was it ~ that's how I went groovin with the Groove Tool ! Cue the music! #grooveon
