Paperartsy - miniatures take 1

This morning I meet up with Janet and spent a lovely few hours sitting at her kitchen table crafting - it was fab just chilling, drinking coffee and making a canvas for this fortnights theme over at Paperartsy….

The canvas is 2.5" x 3.5" - I started off using a variety of Paperartsy fresco paints - the blues were turquoise and mermaid and the purply one I can't remember!! I then doodled using cap lids and the ends of paintbrushes along with adding some doodling with neocolour 11 crayons, black and white pens….


I used the same paints to add colour to a piece of smoothy cardstock and then stamped using Lynne Perella stamp set 030 - I then added a couple of fragments to some of the stamped images and added that along with a metal strap to the canvas … and came up with this:-

Nothing wrong with doodling! The colours are my favourites and I like the fragments, they do enhance the stamps beautifully.
