This project was all about how to use the fabulous PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints. There was lots of layering and stencilling on the background to get the desired effect.
All of the stamps that have been used are also PaperArtsy stamps. The backround for the flowers in the arches was also created with Fresco Finish paints.
The swirls and poppy die cuts were all painted with Fresco Finish too.
I made the large flower at the top with Crunchy paper and the centre is a button that I've painted with Fresco Finish and brushed Treasure Gold over.
I cut the book plate from metalk and then used Little Black Dress and Treasure Gold to distress it.
This was an absolutely fantastic day and I've learnt so much about how to use Fresco Finish. If you've not tried them you really need to !
Hope the sun is shining where you are ! We're going to take the opportunity to light the barbecue tonight, it may be the only chance we get !
