With very little in the way of the required stash (not even the layering stencil!) I had to be rather inventive and I know I am way off piste with this one, but it was a lot of fun. I feel it has a sort of a Jack Vettriano feel to it! (Apologies to JV!)
For all the details of Tim's tag and the techniques they are HERE on his blog. I did do the tartan technique but with the Woodgrain Layering Stencil and I followed the concept of paper piecing - but that is about where it ended!
I have always thought the Festive Gent wasn't just for Christmas and so I decided to give him a tartan make-over with a little bit of help from Umbrella Man. Those Tiny Tattered Florals were just perfect - these are the smallest ones.
I needed a light background to put him on, so came up with this using Faded Jeans and Peeled paint, as in the tartan, but in lighter hues.
And so there he is - my Scottish Gent with a special delivery of a bouquet of flowers, which for me is always the #bestdayever.
Thank you for joining me (again!) today.
