Hello and Happy Tuesday!!! For those in the US, I hope you had a great holiday weekend!!! Ours was wonderful but really busy. My husband's younger brother and his wife were down from MN and visited all day Saturday and then we had a wedding to go to Saturday evening. After church Sunday morning we had kids and grandkids over for dinner and to celebrate a birthday and Monday we worked on the house and spent time with our youngest son. Whew!!!
Today I've been catching up and having a play with PaperArtsy's brand new limited edition paint set.
Over on the PaperArtsy Blog this week they are sharing all the new fall releases!!! Be sure to check it out each day. Yesterday the focus was on new Hot Picks stamps and new paints. Today the focus is new Clare Lloyd stamps.
I'm not sharing any new stamps today (that'll be on Thursday) but I do have a project using the new paints. I started with a 4 3/8" x 6 1/8" piece of heavy smoothy card and gave it two coats of gesso, drying in-between. One coat is brushed horizontal and the other vertical giving great texture to the paper. I then scraped some Teresa Green over the piece using a junk mail card and dried it completely. Next I scraped on Granny Smith and Captain Peacock and while they were still wet, I put the PA Lin Brown stencil PS006 over the piece and used a baby wipe to wipe away paint. I picked up the stencil and replaced it not lining up with the first time and rubbed just a bit more here and there to give it even more depth in the background. I love this background!!! Must do more of this!!! I dried that completely and then used a stencil brush with Professor Plum through the PA Jofy stencil PS011. I picked up extra paint with the junk card and added some lines at the bottom. The quote is from the PA Sara Naumann set ESN12, stamped with Archival ink jet black and embossed with clear powder. I doodled the edges with a Posca marker and added some shimmery highlights with a Wink of Stella marker.
