Playing with Shaving Foam


Suzz is back on the PaperArsty blog and she has brought back an old favourite, shaving foam.  If you don't know what I'm on about, go check it out here and also check out my other blog here.  This time I used fresco paints and not inks as in my tutorial.  I used limelight, beach hut and eggplant.

As you can see I made a tag, (no surprise there then!!), the car is die cut from corrugated cardboard and the clock is die cut from chipboard and coloured with south pacific freso paint.  The map image is from IndigoBlu and the words are from the Ink and the dog, Travel plate #1.

Fab tag - the background is great! But I won't be trying this unless I can find some fragrance-free shaving foam!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 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 6 years and 7 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.
