Topic #3 Infusions

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.

Paperartsy challenge - masks

Unfortunately I've been a short of time over the last couple weeks so haven't had time for anything more elaborate. There are some wonderful entries over on the Paperartsy blog they can be seen here

I've used the simplest of masks to protect the central panel of this card. I then used a variety of little stamps to randomly cover the top and bottom. A little sentiment finishes it off.

Paperartsy Pink and Orange Challenge ~#2

Ok I maybe coming round to the colour combo.  Gone for a simple journal page today.

I started with a pretty infusions background




Next I swirled some tango and bougainvillea fresco onto a piece of scrap paper - onto this I stamped flowers from JOFY 32 and also stamped the main image onto the infusions page.

 

 

 




 I then cut out the flowers and glued them onto and around the main image. A few liquid pearls dots and a black squiggly border added the finishing touches.

Paperartsy Pink and Orange Challenge

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.

PA challenge Typography Fonts and Quotes #2

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

PA Challenge Typography Fonts and Quotes

This is the first of two quick posts for the current PA challenge #21 as I've realised the time  - full details are here

I've put together a journal page using frescos and JOFY stamps - I love this verse and will give this page to a young friend who is battling cancer for the second time. I've also used a fine script stamps in the background which you can just see in these pictures.
