Hello, here’s the first of two blog posts from me today. Over on the PaperArtsy blog, it was anther week of fantastic creativity that left us spoiled for choice. New guest designer, Liesbeth Fidder wowed everyone with her altered tin & Sarah Naumann showed us a journal that had a gorgeous & very clever cover. I could attempt neither of these because a) I have no access to fire, (probably a good thing) & b) my printer is almost empty of ink. Thankfully, Lucy was on hand with THE most beautiful wooden house & I knew I had to try her techniques, so here’s my little bird house…….
Here it is after I had given it a few coats of gesso & Snowflake Fresco paint.
You’ll have to read Lucy’s PA post to find out what she did, but I was thrilled with how well the stencilling worked out. I used Pansy & Very Berry Frescos & Orange Blossom Archival ink for the stamping.
I coloured the JoFY mini birds with watercolour pencils & Frescos. I tried various things on the roof, but nothing seemed right, so I left it white.
Thanks for looking, I’ll be back in a little while with my second PA project.
