Past, Present and Future

Hello and welcome to my blog today :-)

Last weekend I spent a lovely day at a workshop with Seth Apter hosted by Paperartsy. I haven't blogged my project yet - but I will soon!!

Seth taught so many techniques involving layering, stencilling, mark marking and various paint techniques. I wanted to practise what he showed us so have created this journal page in my small Dylusions journal:

I even remembered to take progress photos today - lots of them! So here we go:

Fun to see it evolving so clearly. All the paints used are Paperartsy Frescos in Zucchini, Caribbean Sea, South Pacific, Buff, Mahogany, Terracotta, Midnight and Copper.

The stencils are from a variety of people including Seth, Andy Skinner and TCW.

I stamped using the two new Lin Brown for Paperartsy sets (ELB29 and 30) and used Archival inks in Potting Soil, Orange Blossom and Cornflower Blue.

I also used white embossing powder, black pen, various white pens and I'm not sure what else lol!

Here are some other photos of my page:

The Paperartsy blog currently has a mark making challenge running which is open until next Sunday, the 18th Sept so click HERE for all the challenge info and to see what others have been making :-)

Thanks for stopping by today,
