PA Launch Day #4 includes Sara Naumann


The second group of snippets I shared with you on THIS post were all using images from Sara's new sheets ESN14 and ESN15.  Over on the PaperArtsy Blog today is the launch of Sara's  followed by Darcy's release and then Elizabeth Borer's release.  There is, of course, videos to go along with the blog posts.....  and don't miss going to the PaperArtsy blog to see all the fab projects!!




Just like with Lin's release I'll just go into detail in this post for one of the four projects I did for Sara and continue to show the other projects over the next week or so.  First, complete pics of all samples.




I'll focus on this one today.



The background is a 6" square of heavy smoothy card.  I've painted it with sherbet and vanilla using a piece of foam cut 'n dry starting each color at opposite corners and allowing them to streak together in the center.  The script image (bottom left image on sheet #15) is partially stamped using Archival Ink pale ochre repeating over the card and stamping more than once between inkings.  The flowers along the left edge are stamped with Archival Ink coffee and beach hut paint lightly on each flower to add a little color.  The beach hut looks completely different over the sherbet than it does over the vanilla, really very cool!!!  The bird is stamped directly on the background with Archival Ink jet black and then also stamped on a scrap of vanilla painted card and a scrap of sherbet painted card.  The quote is stamped with jet black.  Beach hut was painted over the top part of the bird on vanilla leaving the belly area vanilla, cut out and layered on the main bird.  The top part of the wing of the bird stamped on sherbet is also painted with beach hut, just the wing cut out and layered onto the bird. Along the bottom I've stamped the sketchy lines image (ESN14) with guacamole.  For the layered flowers, they are stamped onto sherbet painted smoothy with coffee Archival and painted with beach hut, cut out, glued onto the base and clear holeless beads glued to the centers with glossy accents.  I somewhat masked off the bird and then splattered snowflake paint over the whole piece.  Take Flight was stamped onto a scrap, cut out, and glued on as shown.  Dots added around the border with a marker.

These are gorgeous, Wanda. Your work is beautiful and always just overflowing with the joy of creating. I love the sentiments you chose and the way you used colour. Your samples are a delight! I loved the way you combined the flowers and the bird plates too. xxx
