Painty…..

I do love my paint… would you agree after seeing this?


the entire second layer of my "Ikea" trolley is full and this is my Paperartsy paints… don't ask about any others!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so, when Paperartsy announced this fortnights theme as PAINTY wow fabulous just up my street and even more so I've created a piece in the first week! unheard off.  I haven't really used anyones specific technique just played… 

So, I decided to use the new edition paints by Lin Brown - these are just gorgeous - so vibrant…my base is a cream tag and I gave it a coat of snowflake (white) and let that dry before adding my paints…


I then stencilled with the same colours, and stamped in snowflake using stamps from the Ellen Vargo 06 plate and a very old text stamp which came as part of a craft stamper sub gift many moons ago, I also doodled with a white pen...…

to finish off my tag I die cut two hearts and painted them using London Bus and Cherry Red…they each had a coat of gloss glaze before being sat upon some washi tape and a couple of words were added….

Brave choice, the red hearts on top of such vivid colours but it really works!

Love your tag Carol, fantastic background.

Your IKEA trolley is an ideal way for storing all your fantastic paints. I have one too, but store my Sizzix dies in it - doesn't look as neat as your paints though!
