Good morning, as promised, (or threatened??), here’s my second piece for this week’s PaperArtsy challenge.
The amazing Darcy Wilkinson was back as the guest designer this week & every evening she had THE most incredible & beautiful creations to show us. If you haven’t already done so, you need to go to the PaperArtsy blog & look at every single one of her posts – and don’t miss last night’s; not only did she create a stunning artwork, she also designed two new sets of stamps & they are gorgeous.
I found it impossible to choose which of her projects I was going to attempt, but finally chose her first project, the chalkboard, which I love.
I had a 22 x 22cm wooden board which I’d gessoed at some point, so I painted it with Squid Ink fresco paint. When the paint was dry I went around the edges with Aquamarine Treasure Gold.
Following Leandra’s video from last week, about adding metallic paint to frescos, I painted some pieces of black card stock, die cut them with PA grunge flower dies & dry embossed them with a circles embossing folder.
I loved Darcy’s blobby flowers so I had to add them. I used puff paint mixed with frescos. The quote is from a set of Chocolate Baroque stamps, called Artistic Affirmations, I stamped it on to a piece of frayed canvas. The border at the bottom is from PA Hot Pick set 1107.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any chalk, so I can’t add any writing to my chalkboard, but I think it turned out ok.
Thanks so much for visiting. Until next time,
Love & light.
