Paper Artsy Christmas Cracker

Hello lovely blog followers!! hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and that you all have your Christmas trees and decs down by today..and that means you Leandra lol!!

Leandra did 3 lovely pieces on her blog in the last few days and for each challenge there is a prize of some A5 brand spanking new 2014 stamps and some limited edition paints..well if that's not a good enough reason to enter I don't know what is!!

Video 3 was called painted clusters..a Finn style piece with fresco paints..my favorite!! Didn't have time to do all three so chose this challenge.... I absolutely love this technique so pop over and have a look here.

I followed along with what Leandra did so won't bore you with all the details you should go over and watch the video,step by step I am so glad I bought some heavy duty gel medium though as it makes it so much easier to get everything to stick.

                   I didn't take a piccie before I painted the first layer


This is the finished piece using honey dew,guacamole,sage,crushed olives and holly frescos and olive bronze and brass treasure gold.


I'd like to wish you all a very happy new year!!
thanks for stopping by..........
