It’s Wednesday so it’s WOYWW….if I sneak in quietly, perhaps Julia and the rest of the lovely WOYWWers won’t notice how long I’ve been away 😉
Things have been happening at the ‘paper’ end of the den 🙂
My enjoyment from using all things Paper Artsy has returned and I have been playing around with fresco paints making brayered masterboards after watching some of the Paper Artsy You Tubes. This started off as a piece of Tim Holtz printed tissue and I gradually built up layers of fresco paints using a mini brayer (you can see the edges of the paints at the top of the photos – 11 colours – I may have got a bit carried away!). I then picked out some of the colours and added various Paper Artsy stamps as highlights over the tissue. I finished with using a Wendy Vecchi script stamp over half of the sheet with Snowflake fresco. I decided it was a bit dense so I swapped to a crackle stamp for the other half of the sheet…I think that side looks better.
This is what the tissue started out like with the first of the colours.
I think this will end up cut into card and journal backgrounds. The paper end of the den has been sorted and tidied, some things no longer used have been sent to new homes via Ebay and the desk is back to a creative space that hopefully will be on show each Wednesday.
Can’t wait for Sunday as I’m off to Stamporama at Stevenage to see all the new Paper Artsy stamps (and maybe buy one or two…)
For those of you that are new to WOYWW – pop over to Julia’s blog where you can find links to other WOYWWers’ blogs and see what they’ve been up to at their crafty desks
