Hi everyone I have for you a picture for my next post the background came out of a
session playing with a brayer and using Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints
in shades of blue, I watched Leandra's you tube brayered
backgrounds and that was the result.
Instead of their waxed paper I used kitchen grease proof paper
and gradually built up the layers.
You have to be very careful not to have to much paint on the brayer and be gentle rolling
it across make sure all the paint is off the brayer before you use a different colour.
Start with dark colours first then and then gradually add the lighter ones.
It left a lovely mottled effect and the grease proof paper gets stronger
with each application.
To finish the background I used Tim's Flourish stamp inked up with snowflake fresco
finish paint then stamped randomly across the paper.
I triple embossed The Artistic Stamper butterfly off the insects & butterflies plate
three times with gold embossing powder.
I then layered it up and highlighted areas with treasure gold after using alcohol
inks to colour the recessed bits.
Little sequins were glued onto both wings and the body was made up with beads
from my stash. The curly twig with berrys on I had laying around and
two sparkly circles were glues on.
The frame was made with grunge paste through a stencil once dry painted with deco art
media paint in Cobalt Turquoise, once dry I used Deco Art Antiquing cream

I used beads and sequins from my stash, The very talented Jools Robinson inspired this piece by suggesting that I framed the paper I had made. So with that in mind this was where I ended up.
I would be very pleased if you let me know what you think.
