The fabulous people at Paperartsy have a new Guest Design team working with them this year to help us embrace all things Paperartsy, with challenges along the way.
Now, you MAY have noticed (ahem!) that I am partial to a Paperartsy product or twenty so this is right up my street!
The first Guest Designer is the lovely Michelle Webb from TheHobbyRoom - just check out her fabulous creations!
I decided to tackle a canvas. Michelle covered her wooden piece with torn poem pages, and painted over that, but I painted the canvas first and then used torn tissue wrap to partially cover the canvas. I forgot to take step by step photos - too keen to get on!!
I used Baltic Blue, Beach Hut (it's new to me, just arrived this week, and is YUMMY) and white. I gave the whole canvas a light gesso wash to knock it back a little, before stencilling the bubbles in baltic blue again.
Then I took the leafy vine stencil (I've been dying to use this since it came to me just before Christmas...) I used puff paint applied with a paint brush and spread with an old credit card, before puffing it and adding some Fresco paint in Limelight.
Did some random stamping of a script stamp (Mini MN61) in black archival ink, rolling the stamp to ensure I only got part of the script.
So, a big thank you to Michelle for the inspiration, and Paperartsy for putting together this new GD team (run by the delightful Gillian ) I can see we are all going to have lots of fun with this. (there are even prizes on offer!!)
