Fresco Painting

I "accidentally" bought some more Paperartsy Fresco paints earlier this week after watching another of Leandra's You-Tube videos.... and last night/this morning I had a chance to play a bit..

The new colours are Nougat, Irish Cream and Chocolate Pudding and after I stopped feeling really hungry (LOVE the names of these paints!) I took a small canvas and went to work... I borrowed Leandra's "corner, corner, side" method and went from there.   As well as these colours, I used Claret, Baltic Blue and Snowcap.

After I got the background colour more or less as I wanted, I took the Bubbles stencil that fell into the shopping basket with the paints...
... and Very Berry paint with a flourish stencil. I did an "almost bumping" with Nougat paint to create a bit of a shadow around part of the flourishes...

and some Paperarsty minis and stamped them randomly with Baltic Blue paint (clean your stamp straight away), a script stamp and stamped it in black archival ink, and the 'imagine, dream, create' words from Hot Picks 1105


Stamped the girl (One Penny - plate 2) (I can't find this one on the website, but she is in the new Vintage re-sized collection here )on some of the Paperartsy tissue paper and added some colour from the back and stuck it to a scrap of cardstock and fixed to the canvas.

Sorry about the pictures, the flash is bouncing off the canvas!

Wow what a stunning little canvas. It looked great before you added the words and image but it's fabulous with the additions.

A beautiful canvas you created here, Helen. And so funny how the items "fell" into your shopping basket... this always happen to me as well, I have no idea how ;-)

Great canvas Helen, love the background and all the stencils you used. I have even tried not using a basket, due to falling items, but then found that things just "stick" together.....LOL
