Sorry I am continuing to be so quiet. After the hectic few weeks we've had The Craft Garden collective are now all suffering from the same stinky cold and for once it's no fun sharing!! My sinuses are causing my head to hurt so much it's no fun sitting at the computer or even crafting for that matter. At least the last couple of days have been nice enough just to sit in the garden and enjoy the spring flowers.
A few weeks ago I did have lots of fun with my paints and inks making some samples for Sheena's Create and Craft shows tomorrow. She is revisiting the old Paint Fusion stamps but this time we have been allowed to play with them in anyway we wanted.
Here are a couple of the results.
I made some huge flowers with the large rose stamp and enjoyed the Hels Sheridan canvas I made sometime ago so much that I went down the same route again but this time painted the background with the Pebeo acrylic iridescent paints. They are totally yummy. I have definitely found a new love. I used texture paste through a stencil to create the border before adding embossing powder. The little raised dots were also done with paste and highlighted with a watercolour pencil. The rest of the background is created with bits of punched and torn paper stuck onto the canvas before it's painted.
The second canvas does exactly what it says on the tin. I paint fusioned these gorgeous Fuschias and added the sentiment before embossing the edges and adding the swirls with gold sparkly embossing powder.
Short and sweet I'm afraid but thanks for stopping by and I hope to feel up to some blog hopping very soon. Don't forget to catch Sheena's shows tomorrow if you can.
