There is a new theme over on the Paperartsy blog this fortnight - gels and mediums. My project was very much inspired by Sue Carrington's project which you can see here.
I've used a paper mâché hanging board as my base and covered it with torn book pages using glue and seal to stick the pages and also over the top to seal them:-
I gave it a light coat of Buff Fresco paint to tone down the text a bit:-
Next I used a Lin Brown stencil with some Prima graphite texture paste - it is really thick and sandy and has a great sparkle in it (one of my cats was very interested in the paste lol):-
Next I painted some smoothy card with Lavender Fresco paint and then another piece with Tinned Peas. I stamped and cut out the images from a Lin Brown plate then added dimension using Eggplant and Limelight Fresco paints.
The flower petals were coated with Paperartsy metallic glaze, shaped then layered and fastened with a brad.
I added some extra stamping on the board using a couple of Finnabair texture stamps in smokey grey versafine, then edged the board with walnut stain distress ink.
I layered all the pieces onto the board then added the lace along the bottom and the small talk sticker.
A couple of additional photos:-
