I wish I could have played more, obviously I spent all bank holiday weekend and most of last week finishing of the end of year accounts for companies house, then I had to finish 12 ATC's for the woyww4 swap.
I had started a small bag last night but it was obvious I wasn't going to finish it so I had a go at the coasters that I really really wanted to try :-)
I used some beer mats I had, to protect the cardboard I used
glossy medium, then I blobbed Fresco paints in
haystack, pumpkin soup, butternut, zesty zing, smoked paprika
(thought I would go for it all, why not hey lol).
I used an Itunes card to scrap the paint on. Then I let dry,
I wanted a tad bit more orange so I added some more
smoked paprika and another blob of zesty zing so it wouldn't go
too orange. Then I used a crafters workshop stencil mini punchinella
and sprayed Adirondack colour wash in stream and butterscotch.
This went completely wrong, but I have learned to carry on
as you can surprise yourself. One of them was really concentrated
while the other I dabbed back, this is why they look slightly different below,
I have to admit I thought the one with the less colourwash would be better but
I think I prefer the more concentrated one.
Next I brayered the snowflake, stamped with stamps from
HP1109, HP1009 and HPXT01 (the splats).
Then as Darcy did I rubbed back, I just went for it and wow I love them,
I love the fact that the yellow paint with the stream colourwash gives
a green colour throughout. WOW love them, I am going
to find some proper cork coasters so I can make a set,
I think these would make great gifts.
I varnished them with crafters companion varnish spray.
I would like to see what the fresco pearl would be like, but wasn't sure
if it would be too opaque, I still have to play to see what it does :-)
Look at the lovely pastel blue with the green :-)
Right I better go enter. I can't wait to find out what she does next time.
Happy Crafting :-)
