A Possibility


Hi There!!!!!  I hope you are having  a good Saturday!!!  

I'm entering this project into two challenges.  Simon Says Monday Challenge - Based on a Book... and also the PaperArtsy current challenge - Paints With Infusions.  

I'm working on a piece of PaperArtsy Heavy Smoothy paper that measures about 3 1/2" x 6".  I painted (all paint used in the project is Fresco Finish Paint) it with South Pacific, dried it, scraped on Crackle Glaze, let it mostly dry, painted over it with Antarctic and let it completely dry.


Next I sprinkled Infusions Are You Cerise in the center of the panel, brushed over it with Matte Glaze spreading the color, sprayed droplets of water over the panel....


...let it sit a bit and then blotted up the water.  How cool is that!!!!


After that I forgot about taking pictures until I was done.  I've used pieces from a book page edged with Distress Ink Evergreen Bough and Washi Tape going up and down.  There is also some stamping (All stamps are PaperArtsy Lin Brown - a few different sets).  I painted another strip of book page with Antarctic and then stamped the words on it, tore it in half and attached the pieces with Washi Tape.  The flower (2 of them) was stamped on book page, colored with a waterbrush and Distress Inks, cut out (a whole flower and then just the center part), layered up with foam tape and a button put in the center.  More stamping in two of the corners. Oh, I splattered on some thinned Little Black Dress paint before attaching the flower.  The edges are painted with Vanilla which in places tinted as it dried from the infusions.

I would never have thought to layer this color of Infusions over your crackled teal background, but the result is beautiful! Great inspiration. Hugs, Autumn
