PA topic 22 - Masterboards

You can tell by how quickly (for me) I've made my entry for the current Paperartsy challenge how much I enjoy making Masterboards.  I usually stamp random images and colour them in but this time I've braved a spot of brayering.

This is the first couple of layers and where I usually declare it a "right old mess" and give up. 

Any way I carried on adding a couple of lighter colours and stamping, in ink and paint.  Lastly for a Christmassy feel I added a few snowflakes with bonding powder and silver foil - afraid these don't show up very well here.  I can see I need to persevere when making these as I quite like the end result below.


These are the paints and stamps I've used.

                                                                                                                                                Now the fun part of making the masterboard into cards - I ended up with 4 and a tag !  I might actually end up with enough to send at this rate ! 

Thanks for looking xx

PA topic 21 - Abstract

Not a topic I'm ever sure about - either creating or to look at. But after seeing some of the lovely pieces of art people have produced I thought "why not give it a go ".  Hopefully this isn't too simple to be included as I quite liked it at this point and didn't want to spoil it.

Afraid I've no step by step photos as I just went for it - love the foil when it catches the sun.  I might try something like this again as it was fun to do what ever came to mind

Thank you for looking x
