...yep, that is the incredibly original (ahem) title for today's post. After the challenge on Wednesday, Mr Mojo put in a brief reappearance so I grabbed him by the scruff and got playing my my fave Paper Artsy Fresco Paints. The base is a chunky greyboard square from PaperArtsy. Being an honest lass, I will admit that this piece is actually third time lucky - this has taken me over a day to make because I kept mucking it up.
First I got the background paint exactly how I wanted it and then went and faffed and added a bit too much. So I slapped a piece of paper over it and started again. This time, the background was exactly how I wanted it so I started with the stamping... and goofed up, stamping a script wonky isn't a good look, "I shall cover it with an embellishment" thought I. And then promptly went and stamped said script again... upside down! PAH! So a very thick layer of Nougat Fresco right over the top and an overnight drying sesh occurred.
Finally, I managed to get it to look how I wanted it... I substituted the stamping from Archival Ink (which was a bit harsh) to using Squid Ink paint... I happen to be in lurves with this gorgeous colour... it is the colour that I also used on two of the flowers... isn't it lush! As well as the Squid Ink stamping, I also added little torn strips of Washi Tape. The paint colours I used were: Nougat, Rose, Claret, Toad Hall, Hey Pesto and Squid Ink.
The butterfly is where this whole project started... I used Cut & Dry foam to apply the Fresco Paints to the Twiddlybits diecut... and then added smidges of Treasure Gold to bling it up a bit. I wanted to add some texture to the board, so I decided to mix up some Grungepaste with Hey Pesto FF paint... and then I used my fave 490 Stencils for Art leafy stencil to add the leaves along the top of the board. The hanger was a birthday pressie last year from Ellen... I have been covetting it for too long... so decided to use it on this project. I added a few charms to the hanger and a little handstamped word using Alpha stamps.
Well, I am in the wars again! For some reason the old war wound is really playing up and to be honest, I think that is one of the reasons why the Mojo ain't flowing as easily as it usually does... This new pain is nothing like I have had before and it is really bugging me. Needless to say, the premium rate phone call to the Dr's this morning was a complete waste of time and money as they had no appt's left for today. Rid.Ic.U.Lous!!!! I am sitting waiting on the emergency doc calling me and maybe he may see me... PAH! Anyways... enough of my moaning, time to get moving again and get my special project for the weekend completed... please do check back on Sunday for the Sunday Stamper and a nosey at what I have been up to... there be a prize too!!! That's all I am saying for now! Thanks for looking, have a goodly day! TTFN
