Let The Sun Shine In

Published May 6, 2013 by isisimaginings

Good evening & happy Monday, hope everyone has had a great weekend.  Before I show you tonight’s project, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone for the kind comments on my recent posts & also a warm welcome to my new followers.  I appreciate you all.

This project is my take on an excellent tutorial by Lin Brown, of Yours Artfully fame.  Along with Leandra of PaperArtsy, she is a genius when it comes to working with Fresco paints & when she posted this tutorial on April 14, I knew I had to try it.  (It’s only taken me three weeks, not long at all for me).

I used Nougat & Chocolate Pudding for my base layer after applying the wondrous Grunge Paste through two Dina Wakley stencils, (Mini Sunray & Mini Vine), for The Crafters’ Workshop onto a sheet of PaperArtsy grey board – fabulous stuff.  Lin used Stone & Squid Ink, which are two of the new Fresco colours & look gorgeous, I want them badly.


Lots of stencilling with Snowflake.


After I’d stamped & applied foil ‘schizzle’*, (#PATWITS terminology) & Treasure Gold, (Brass, Spanish Topaz, Aquamarine), I spent an age wondering how to finish the piece.  I cut a few flowers from the TH Tattered Floral die to try, but they didn’t work at all.

Then I remembered the metal flowers my mum had given me a few years ago.  I like them a lot.

I applied assorted frescos & TG to the Idea-ology ornate plate & Wild Honey DI to the journal ticket, then added Crackle Accents.

Here’s the finished piece again.  I’m fairly happy with it.  Again, I have to say that Lin’s tutorial was excellent.  Thank you Lin!
