Some Fun With Paint Fusion

Afternoon folks

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.

Happy Crafting

Hi again, Lisa. You said two posts so checked this one out too, only to find you have sinusitus. I had this too a few weeks ago, caused by a really nasty virus and I felt soooooo ill so you have my heartfelt sympathies and I do hope you are feeling less wretched soon. Lovely canvases - I especially like the aquas in the first one. Take care and some get well hugs to you, Elizabeth xx

Oh my Lisa, what a dilemma choosing a favourite here as I love them equally but in different ways.

I do hope you cold clears up, so many peeps seem to have them.

Hope you feel better soon. I am still not sure if I have a cold or if it is hayfever! your canvases are so beautiful! I love them both, but the first just wins it for me. I think it is the gorgeous colours and the texture paste - so beautiful!

Oh wow. What gorgeous creations. The blue canvas is amazing. Love all the textures and those fabulous roses.
The Fuschias are beautifully painted and make the perfect frame for the sentiment plate.
Hope you and the family are soon feeling much better.

Hi Lisa, love the canvases, both stunning, but I adore the first one, such beautiful colours.
Hope the cold gets better.

Good grief Girl! These are both stunning! Wow. Well done you.
Now keep your cold to yourself please and no spreading it down South!
Get some honey, lemon juice, hot water and a sprinkle of cinnamon and take some paracetomol and you will soon be feeling better.
Oh and a few hugs from me.
