Hey there my scrappy friends. It's DUSTY ATTIC post time! Painting time, actually, as I've had an absolute BLAST playing with their SUPERB range of acrylic paints.
Initially, I was going to do this, for my first 'extra' post:
I gathered my bits & bobs...
Not mentioning the youngster with the bottle of port.....that's for another post!!!!!...
...then I just needed to create my back ground by splotting on some 'free form' circles with the paints on my card stock.
EASY PEASY.....all sorted. HA!
Does this happen to you? You start on a Mission...& end up somewhere completely OPPOSITE.
Like, I ended up making CARDS. I kid you NOT!!!!
So, I merrily slapped on this most magical of paints - it went on beautifully! I just squeezed it out of the nozzle straight on.
Such fun! Such a simple...errr...'Technique'!!!
The paint was fairly thick, so...
...I ended up 'patting off' some of the paint, so it wouldn't take all week to dry, using some other card stock, along with some A4 sheets.
Oooh! YUMMY....& this is where I went off on my merry tangent.
I had some lovely wooden dolls, gifted to me by the also lovely Rebecca Morris, sitting right by me...
This is what eventuated:
I mean, seriously - I could NOT stop that girl partying, now could I?!!!
I added some of DA's much easier to use than Glossy Accents 'CLEAR GLOSS VARNISH' inside the stars.
Then sprinkled on some glitter:
And did the same at the top & on the sentiment:
Then...this girl got on in the act:
She STOLE my birds & my stars from my planned LO....aaah well.....
As you can see, I was on a roll & I'm afraid I got carried away.
Thought I should try for a Man Card so the girls had someone to keep 'em company:
Pulled out these yummies. And since this is all about the paints. I painted! And I am NO artist.
No idea how to do shading. Just dabbed a bit.
And I must say, I am tickled PINK [or should that be blue??!!!]
at the result.
What do you think?
A couple of closies:
I cut those DA fence posts to size....ADORE them!!!! The 'nails' are liquid pearls....inked up sentiment.....
Sooooo.....lotsa DA goodies used. I'm in serious ♥♥♥ with the paints....& having a ball with the chippies.
List is below.
Thanks so much for looking. Long post, I know. Sozzy.
But those girls 'had' to have their time in the spotlight:)
Happy Scrapping my friends ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
