#3 Up Takeover The Paper Artsy Blog

It's the end of the semester over at Paper Artsy and that means one thing - the #3up followers get to take over for a few days!

I was lucky enough to be selected for this and the colour scheme I chose was purple, yellow and a hint of blue.  I chose this colour scheme because it was out of my comfort zone.

We also then had to choose from the themes illustrated throughout the semester.

I made one project and then loved the scheme so much I created another!  You can see the submission on the Paper Artsy blog here

Here are my creations:

For this I chose the techniques of fragile papers and grunge paste.

I brayered then stamped over a sheet of tissue paper.......

Then tore it all up!  (as you do!!)

This was then glued to a 6x6 canvas board

I coloured grunge paste with various colours of Fresco Finish paint then stencilled onto the board in different areas.

The border, house and flowers were stamped onto card and painted then cut out and adhered to the board.

To finish I stamped a quote onto tissue paper and adhered to the board and added white marker in places to make the stencilling stand out.

My second project was very different!

I used fragile papers and grunge paste again from the techniques.

I got completely carried away with this and did not take any photos during the creating!

First, I painted a 6x6 canvas board with yellow submarine Fresco Finish paint. 

I then randomly stamped the stars in purple.

I coloured grunge paste in 2 colours and used these to stencil a border and circles.

The main image and quote were stamped onto tissue paper then painted and adhered using matt medium.

So there you have it!!  Thank you to the Paper Artsy team for giving me the opportunity to join in again.

Make sure you pop on over to the blog to see everyone else's fabulous creations.
