PA Topic 6 - Grunge Paste

The latest theme for the PaperArtsy challenge is the use of grunge paste or similar medium - full details can be found here.

Afraid this is quick post as I wanted to get my entry in before we go away for the weekend.  I've used the GP for the stencilled leaves in the background - with added texture from lightly dabbing the paste with my finger whilst still wet.  Everything was then painted in Antarctic and the stencilled areas dried brushed with Lake Wanaka.  I also used GP tinted with Inky Pool to stencil in the wording.

To finish I painted some splodges of green and pinks onto to card and then cut out the stamped the flowers and leaves.

I think this is the third Ikea mirror I've transformed - I wonder how many have been purchased for the same reason? I can't believe anyone would leave them plain white .......

Happy Easter everyone xx
