Today is the start of 7 days of new product launches on the PaperArtsy Blog. This first day focuses on their line of Fresco Finish paints!!!! There are new yummy colors!!!! I've already had a chance to play with some of them and created these pages in my art journal.
I gessoed the page first, tore some music tissue wrap in pieces and glued them on with gel medium and used my fingers to paint on the new colors smurf and wisteria. I stenciled the flowers along the bottom and the word bloom (PS008) with grunge paste. Next I did a glaze by mixing lavender with matte glaze about 1/2 and 1/2, brushed it over the flowers and word, waited a minute and used a baby wipe to rub it off. I decided it wasn't dark enough so repeated that with blueberry mixed with matte glaze. I used my finger to rub the new bougainvillea over the flowers, decided it wasn't bright enough so went over the flowers again with snowflake and then bougainvillea so the bougainvillea would pop. The centers of the flowers and some of the extra dots have the new color banana on them. I stamped the 3 large flowers (a new Lin Brown stamp) on the page with Archival Ink jet black and also stamped them on a book page. In the background I've stamped a couple of new Sara Naumann stamps, one (the lines) with the new color blue oyster and the other (writing) with Archival Ink. I painted on stems and stenciled the leaves (PS002) with hyde park. There is also some hyde park along the bottom added with my finger. "wherever you are planted" is from Darcy's stamp set EDY07. I painted the flower on the book page with banana and tangerine twist, cut them out, and glued them over the stamped flowers. Rubbed some snowflake paint around the edges and then doodled with a Posca marker.
