Hello, Kirsten here, I have managed to blog three Mondays in a row - makes a change!! It's October 23 and the clocks go back at the weekend, so I thought I'd show you two projects I made for the PaperArtsy workshop Lisa held on September 9. They're bright and colourful, a nice antidote to the long dark evenings ahead.
I've no step by step photos, but they were both made the same way and I kept them quite simple. I'll put details of the PaperArtsy stencils and stamps, etc., below each photo.
I painted the wooden icons - these are great! Lightweight and completely smooth, with Christmas on the horizon they'd make perfect gifts - with Deco Art Americana acrylic paints and added some stencilling before stamping the images on top. I stamped the images again on to white card, then painted them with Distress inks, used as watercolours. I cut the pieces out and glued them to the icons and that was it.
