Well how could I resist a challenge involving blue........my entry is inspired by the gorgeous blue sky today and the pretty yellow flowers around at the moment. There's loads of wonderful projects and inspiration on the Paperartsy blog see here
I've created a small hanging piece involving crackle glaze, texture paste, gilding wax, stencilling and a stack of embellishments.
Thank you for looking and enjoy the sun this weekend x
What great pots of colour - I need to buy a couple more. Love using them but don't get many chances to be messy. I hadn't realised how many ways they could be used until I read the recent posts on the Paperartsy blog - the challenge info is here
I've gone for a journal page using infusions with matt glaze for the background. I then stamped and embossed three flowers, sprinkled infusions in the centres and spritzed with water. For the top flower I repeated this on a piece of spare card and cut it out to add dimension.
The smaller flowers needed more impact so a diluted a sprinkled of powder with water and painted in the centres. I had loads and loads left so mopped this up with card and cut out the flowers when it was dry.
Quite a bit out of my comfort zone with this combination of colours . But here goes - nice to have time to play after Christmas cards, birthday cards and Save the date cards.
I started with a small tag onto which I'd stuck scraps of book pages. Next I scraped orchid and butternut fresco paint with an old credit card. I then stencilled cosmic shimmer texture paste - which when heated bubbles and creates a fantastic texture. I also stencilled in some trees in a darker pink and stamped grasses along the bottom. All that was then needed was a couple of cute owls to live in my rather bizarre coloured forest.
This is my second entry to the current PA challenge and quite different to my usual style - loads of colour in the background from some beautiful zingy frescos. I've also stamped the word SING in matching distress inks after adding the white bricks. The main image is from Visible Image - love her thumb print dress
