Hurrah and thrice, I have my entry to show you! I spent a lovely day yesterday demo-ing with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints and some gorgeous new JOFY and Lin Brown stamps. This piece was my first demo using the JOFY stamps... I loves them, I neeeeeds them all too :O)) The base is a canvas board that has a frame with it. I started by using the scraped paint technique to put Guacamole, Mermaid, Hey Pesto and Ocean colour paints onto the canvas and then added a smidge of black over the top to finish the design.
Next I used a Studio 490 Stencil for Art and applied Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to the bottom part of the canvas, making little scoopy bits on the texture paste to add some detail. When this was dry, I added smidges of Treasure Gold to the stencilled bits and then added some stamped images ... I stamped them onto cosmetic tissue (plain old Kleenex works a treat) and used Ranger's Glue & Seal to stick them on. Once this was dry I slapped a load of Rock Candy Cracklepaint over the top. Once the crackles were set, I added some spritzing in the form of Black Marble Dylusions spray so this sat in the crackly bits... and smidged more Treasure Gold over the top. The die cut word was painted black and I used Glossy Accents to highlight it and added some extra pops of colour by colouring book page with the same colour paints, stamping the images and then cutting them out and laying them over the tissue images. Finishing touches were some little butterflies I cut out and added pearls to for their bodies.
Apologies again for the late posting of the pics... hope it was worth the wait :O) I am off to unpack all my class stash now and then get my act together for my demo day on Wednesday at Inspirations in Preston. Busy week for me :O)) Thanks for looking... have a great day! TTFN
