Happy Thursday blog visitors. Firstly, I must say an enormous thank you for all the very generous comments on my #3UP PaperArtsy project, it means so much to me that you would all take the time to visit & comment. It’s been a great week on the PA blog & if you haven’t seen the wonderful projects created by crafters from around the world, please take some time to peruse each evening’s posts.
Last week I was delighted to discover that I’d won a set of the Lin Brown PA stamps on Carol Quance’s blog. They arrived today, along with a gorgeous fabric tag that Carol made during her recent week as a PA guest designer.
Thank you very much Carol & thanks too to Leandra for donating then for the giveaway. I’ve watched Lin demo these stamps & I’m hoping to get time to play over the weekend.
I’ve been using my journal to mop up paint & tonight I spent a little time actually finishing a page. This is how it looked at the start.
I stencilled the small skull (Andy Skinner Skulduggery stencil) with Snowflake fresco paint & the roman letters stencil with Watering Can Archival ink, (one of Wendy Vecchi’s six new colours for Ranger).
I added more stencilling & stamped the Dylusions Curious Corrin eyes stamp with WV Red Geranium Archival.
More stamping, (‘Inside My Own Head’ from PA Ink & The Dog Eclectic 6 set) with second generation black Archival & I stencilled the large skull with black Archival also.
The finished page. I stamped the PA Eclectic 6 image with WV Green Fern Archival & blended a little Old Paper distress ink on the background, making sure to leave the face white. The quote is from Chocolate Baroque’s Artistic Affirmations stamp set.
I’ll do something with the other side over the weekend. Until the next time,
Love & light.
