Good afternoon, I hope everyone’s having a nice weekend so far. I have actually managed to make a second piece for this week’s PaperArtsy challenge. There was so much incredible talent on the PA blog this week that I wanted to make lots of things but in the end I went with Ruth’s project from night 6. Ruth used Ellen Vargo’s stamps & Lin Brown stencils to make a gorgeous tropical scene, so I thought I’d try a smaller version…………..
I started my background with Pea Coat, Inky Pool, Bora Bora, Mermaid, Ice Blue Frescos on a piece of PA grey board, stamped the PA Mini circles stamp with the same colours & put a wash of Beach Hut on top.
I painted heavy watercolour paper with Pumpkin Soup & Zesty Zing & stamped the seed pod from EEV02 with Snowflake. The flower centre is Inky Pool, Pea Coat & Eggplant & a stamp from EEV03 stamped with Archival. I used an embossing tool to add dots of Snowflake.
Thanks to Ruth for the inspiration. If you’d like to see more of Ruth’s work, her blog is http://argeum.blogspot.co.uk/
See you all next time.
