Daisy, Daisy....

The other day I treated myself to another one of the new Jo Firth-Young stamp plates for Paperartsy... and this is about the first time I've had to play with it...

I also used the Green Olives Fresco paint which I also bought the other day.. you get the idea!

 I painted the pages with the green olives paint, then dragged a scraper through it to make a design (this is a plastic tool for use on the Gelli plate which I don't have) and although I bought it some time ago, I've not used it before.

Stamped the flowers in black archival and painted them in with watered down Honey Dew Fresco trying to keep the words visible in the petals.
 I've used some of the home-made tape that I created after Darcy's Paperartsy post earlier this week, as it tones colourwise and uses the little flowers from this same stamp set.



 I really really love this dragonfly stamp!! I highlighted the wings with sparkly gel pens
and also outlined the flower petals with one too.




This is my third post today... crikey!

Looks great, You know if you dont want to guy a gelli plate you can always make one. Ask Jean (musicscrp) for the recipe. Love the bit of sparkle around the dragonfly.

Love these pages Helen! They combine a couple of my favourites - daisies and the (what I call) sludgy green shades. Your tape looks fab too!
