PaperArtsy Challenge Inspired by France Papillon

Published August 17, 2013 by isisimaginings

Happy Saturday!  This is the first of two blog posts this evening – yes, not only have I completed one project for this week’s PaperArtsy challenge, I have completed TWO.

This week saw the return of the supremely talented France Papillon to the PaperArtsy blog & as always, she did not disappoint.  I wanted to make something for each of her projects, but in the end I combined the first two on one canvas.  Here are the links to those projects;

 Here’s my finished canvas.

I’m happyish with how this turned out.  I have reservations about the grunge paste clouds, in particular the oil pastels on the clouds.  I’ve decided I’m not a big fan of oil pastels.  Other people get great results, but I can never get them to blend properly.

I created the border with white embossing border & Snowflake Fresco paint, with White Fire Treasure Gold on top.  The quote is a Chocolate Baroque stamp.

Thanks for looking, I’ll be back shortly with my second project.

Love & light.

  • What a great idea to combine both! Love the background, the stencilled area, even the clouds! I had the same problem with oil pastels on my project.. I nearly pulled out the Sansodor/white spirit to help with the blending but I was concerned I would make it worse!

  • I love this canvas. I really like the use of the tag. I was too chicken to use oil pastels on a project this week! I was worried they wouldn’t work out and I’d end up sobbing! I’m that tired and emotional at the moment. Lol! This looks great, though, really effective! Julie Ann xx

  • Great way to do a ‘two in one’ Kirsten and it’s turned out beautifully. I’ve never even tried oil pastels ……. think I’m a bit scared of them for some reason, lol!
