Sand Paper meets Artbars


Over at the PaperArtsy blog the guest designer has been sharing more techniques, this time using sand paper and pastels.  You can find the full instructions here.  I used Artbars as I don't have the portfolio pastels. I used green(A18), turquoise (A15) and cyan (A13).


This is a close up after having used the sand paper, but I only had 1 grade which was fine, probably could of done with a bit more ruffage!!!  Don't even know if you can see it very well.


I used the stencil bump technique on the background, stamped some script from the PA Ink and the dog background #2 plate and used the main images off the LP collection 005 plate.  The crunchy waxed kraft paper has been coated in treasure gold, aquamarine, sapphire, olive bronze and a bit of onyxite thrown in too and attached with T!m's tiny attacher.  Fibres added to finish.
