Dragons Dream - TIO Recipe Inspired by Jo - PA


Over at PaperArtsy this week the new GD is the lovely Jo, who I met for only the second time last Sunday as she popped into our workshop with Lin, but kept stummm about the PA DT.  Jo made 3 projects and I've pinched some from each, the first being the grunge paste over the heart die cut shape from project #1.


Coloured the tag with mocha mousse fresco, added grunge paste through the roman letters stencil and painted the heart shape in stone. I covered the tag in a mix of renaissance and onyxite treasure gold but forgot to take a photo - duh!!!  This is from project #3.


And then I went my own way with it because I didn't want to add any stamping to the heart because I loved the texture created by the grunge paste, which I painted in brown shed fresco, and applied more TG and added French roast around the edges. 


I stamped the word fragile onto a piece of crunchy wax paper in timber brown stazon.  I painted lots of different coloured layers on the background, chocolate pudding, Irish cream, cinnamon and more mocha mousee until I was happy with the colour and hi-lighted with French roast.  I added some script in timber brown stazon from PA the ESN03 word plate.


I attached the crunchy wax paper with a couple of brads.

Dragons Dream - TIO have a recipe of brown, layers, die cut and a word, and it goes without saying, at least one real stamp so I combined the two.
