PaperArtsy Tags

After I'd blogged my PaperArtsy tags here Leandra left me a comment and a challenge to do one using a snowflake background. She also listed loads more info about the paints and why they did what they did.  So here is my kraft tag with a base of snowflake fresco paint.  I used all the same colours and techniques as in the original post which you can find here.

Having read my mini master class in the comments Leandra kindly took the time to leave, then intrigued by what Helen did with her make, I did a black tag too.  Again using exactly the same colours and techniques.

These are the two images side by side.  Left is the black tag and right is the kraft tag painted with snowflake fresco paint.

Just in case you'd not realised, all the images are from my new stamp plate LP #10 which I won in last weeks draw.  Hence the reason I tied the keys on as they are from this plate too!!

So come on, what you all waiting for, get crafting and link up here.

Gorgeous Sam!! This paint is just so versatile!!

Leandra Franich said...

You need to teach Helen how to make Teddy bear honey brown!! Lol.

You have mastered the art of PaoerArtsy stamping
1. Create a background
2. Stamp in black on top
3.embellish with bits and bob

Why do people think its hard. It's fun, achievable and FUN! You can do this with scrapbook papers, inks but OMG how much more fun is it with paint where u can make up your own colours.

Thanks for your enthusiasm Sam.! It's great to see you enjoying the paint and stamps so much. said...

Wow, they are gorgeous tags. Love the colours & all the detailing.

Lucky you Sam!! Not sure which I envy most: the mini masterclass or the draw prize!! These tags are gorgous and as I'm a big LP fan, they are right up my street.

Marianne said...

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
