Paper Artsy Challenge

Haven't had much time  for the challenge this week seemed to be forever running all over the place, two day's at hospital and work just about took all my time.....oh and the enormous pile of ironing that I had to catch up with!!

So last night seeing as I had the house to myself I made a quick little canvas..

I started off with a canvas board and covered in mermaid and guacamole, blending them in the middle.

Using grunge paste I stenciled the grass and flowers and dried it off before stamping flowers from Jofy 10 in black archival.

I made a glaze with  PA satin and south pacific and painted it all over the canvas then laid a piece of tissue over it squooshed it down. when that dried I rubbed some limelight over the grassy areas and some south pacific around the top of the canvas. With a black jelly roll pen I outlined the flowers and using a white pen went over the stenciled flowers, added some purple TG to the flowers and some tiny text in black using mini 61 and edged the canvas in black. I put a tiny bit of green amber  and indigo TG over the black.

We have been spoilt this month over at Paper Artsy, the inspiration for my canvas has come from all the lovely guest designers and their gorgeous projects.. so why don't you pop over and have a look you can find them here...
