WOYWW 191

Please don't tell me it's the end of January already..... At least the snow has gone - it turned milder at the weekend, rained and - gone!  Thank goodness!  Hello and welcome to another Wednesday cyber travelling the desks of the world,thanks to Julia at the Stamping Ground


Today you find me in Paperartsy Fresco paint heaven (again!) with some new colours (new to me, though there are new colours in the works...)  They arrived on Tuesday, and luckily the postman left them with a neighbour, which is good as I get to share them with you today and try them out...

I had a play on Tuesday night with the Egg Plant (lush colour!) and you can see how it turned out in the previous post!!

The door hangers in the picture above are to use also with the Fresco paints - courtesy of some fab ideas by Leandra (Mrs Paperartsy) on her latest video - if you haven't seen it, check them out  on her you-tube channel  here - it is amazing!!

You'll likely be a while there, so you may want to finish the desks first..!!!  Hope to see you soon.

Happy WOYWW. Gorgeous colours. I have pulled out of the world of mixed media before I drowned in crafty stash (and debt!), but still love admiring other people's creating. Ali x #34

I haven't tried fresco paints but they look good but do I really need them, I ask?
January has been a weird month... it seems to have lasted forever and thrown so much bad weather our way but it also seems to have gone in a flash! hope Feb gives us better,

Love that colour- I'm a big purple fan, lol. Like you say, glad to see the back of that snow, it's nice when you can look out of the window & say 'how pretty'- novelty wears off pretty quick when you have to go out in it though! Have a great day, Hugs, Shaz xx #69

We had beautiful sunshine and a stunning Rainbow here this morning, but it's all gone to pot since then!

The paints look good, I'm off to check out the video.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I love purple..in fact it's one of my all time favourite colours....so why don't I use it more often in my sewing? Itsnweird, you hardly ever see a really nice purple fabric (well, one I like anyway...!) I shall have to lobby some fabric manufacturers to redress the situation. To the t'internet, and don't spare the horses.....!!
Hugs, LLJ 36 xxxx

Humm - Fresco paints, I have none, but I am liking the look of the sample. Research is needed to see what the qualities are and why I NEED them.....Oh dear....

We've always wanted to decorate a door hanger, it's on our never ending list of things to try. Enjoy your paint experiments and thanks for visiting the bears this week.

Krisha said...

Egg Plant is the prettiest purple. I always keep an ink pad of that color, it seems to be the only true purple out there. Door hangers are fun to make and I don't know why I don't make them more often......too many things to make on my bucket list LOL

Barb King said...

Great color, I've never tried those, they look like fun! Barb

Sandy Leigh said...

Is that eggplant purple? How fun! I love all your creativity. It is so good for us to experiment too, and figure out new colors and paints and things. Is this for your art journal too? Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #104

Love that colour, a really nice shade of purple. Looks like you'll be having more painty fun too. And yes, that's me in the pic, although it could be anyone, that's why I posted it lol!

That's a rather nice colour of purple and you just made me realise that it is a colour I rarely buy in anything! Have fun playing with your door hangers!! Annette

Almo said...

Di said...

Wow - I adore that Eggplant colour, it could turn me away from my beloved pink even!

Happy WOYWW, hugs, Di xx

sandee said...

I'll have to google Fresco Paints as I am not sure what they are. Looks like you are having lots of fun though! Thanks as alays for visiting my blog, waving hi from the windy and rainy hills of North Carolina ♥

Ali said...

Oooh pretty colours! New stash is always a good thing. :)

Julia Dunnit said...

I really am loving your Fresco phase vicariously! I haven't got any YET but i is only a matter of time....and until the time that I can, I have to stay away from the YouTube channel..I just know it'll set me off! Thank god the snow has gone..I'd rather think of you trudging home through wind and rain than experiencing the treacherous pavements..my word they were lethal!

Caro said...

Gorgeous colour and such fun to play with paint. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro #60

Nelle said...

Hi Helen, Over the past weeks I have seen so many ideas that have made me want to go beyond my little safe place. I have always liked the idea of painting things, seeing your ATC crackled metal has been one of my must try things. I have an old idea book that i will use to make my journal, It is going to be called.. INSPIRED BY each page will have the name of who has ispired me to.......... You are going to hit the first page. Helen Inspired me to play more with paint.....
Regards,
Nelle xx #75

Isn't it great to have some time to play with inks and other things. On the other hand, it is incredibly difficult to get the right result on a photo. Sparkles and shiny things just look flat. I am going to try a small video of some of these sorts of things to see if that is any more effective. By the way, my granddaughter wants all the tiny bits of card and paper to cut up to make mosaics. Thank you for your visit this week and have a good time. xx Maggie #11

Great to get a lovely set of new colours. I also look at the paperartsy site regularly and am always blown away with their wonderful ideas. Looking forward to seeing the final pic of your project.

SaraJ said...

Those paints look really fun...I've tried their chalk paints, but since I'm partial to purple I'm anxious to see your finished project.
