Evening, I’m going to try to make this brief as it’s late & I need to sleep.
It is #3UP week on the PaperArtsy blog & since Sunday the wealth of talent & creativity from PaperArtsy fans has been incredible. If you’ve missed it, start HERE. For the PA challenge this week you can make a maximum of three projects, inspired by any of the #3UP posts. I love them all, but Mark’s terrific canvas from Monday night, using Darcy’s Eclectica stamps, got me thinking & tonight I made this journal page.
The background is Fresco paints – Chartreuse, Guacamole, Limelight, Zesty Zing, Mermaid, Bora Bora, Irish Cream – applied with a baby wipe. Stamping with Cornflower Blue & black Archival inks. Grunge Paste through TCW reverse honeycomb stencil, White Fire TG on top. The sun – from EEV002 – stamped with Orange Blossom Archival, then Zesty Zing applied with a baby wipe.
Stamping; Darcy’s Eclectica minis 01 & 02, Jo Firth-Young’s JoFY09 . I coloured with Frescos & water colour pencils. The body of the bird & the heart are paper pieced. I stamped her & the toadstools onto linen textured card.
The ‘grass’ is the seed stamp from Ellen Vargo’s EEV002, stamped with Fern Green Archival onto white card painted with Sage & Tinned Peas Frescos.
That’s it, thanks for looking & thanks to Mark for the inspiration & Darcy, Jo & Ellen for their fantastic stamp designs.
