To PaperArtsy we shall go where this week Joanne Wardle has been showing off her CAS style. I think it might have been a bit of a shock after all the paint and layers we are used to over at PaperArtsy but between you, me and craftimamma it's not as easy as it looks. Anyway, I'm inspired to try Joanne's third project and make some little sweety bags for the trick or treaters.
I started by stamping these three party animals from PA USFD3 many times onto white card. Then I added a splash of Limelight.
I made a stamped background as per Joanne's instructions. Loved the tip to start with the big stamps and then fill in with the little ones. It's faster than trying to patchwork as you go along. All PaperArtsy stamps from ASI2, LPC001, USNT4, and SM12. I love this. It's fab. Then, woe is me, it went a bit wrong.
Yep, it's really obvious isn't it and shows me to be a Fresco Finish Paints novice. I started with the lovely translucent Limelight. Wonderful. Then I went Pansy!! Great colour but opaque! Just like it says on the tin. Oh, parsnip, or words to that effect. Reach for the Inky Pool cos you know that's translucent. And ignore the mistake and move on, cos we know it won't matter to the finished project but for those who prefer wisdom to experience, check the label. It clearly says and shows the opacity of these lovely paints. Take a tip from me. It does what it says on the label......
So I followed instructions, cut everything up, glued everything together, filled my little baggies with sweeties and wow. Great, they stand up all by themselves. As Joanne said, great party favours.
