#3Up I'm getting painty

Hello everyone, thanks for visiting me today as I can now share that I have a journal page being shown over on the Paper Artsy blog.  I was thrilled that I was picked and knew straight away, that I wanted to play with paint. The group I was in was determined by colour scheme, and included Dee Adams Dounia Large and was coordinated by the very talented Jo Myhill.

The Pallette we chose was Stone, Concrete, Slate and Lichen -  so sit back with a nice cup of tea and read on :).

I used Paper Artsy Fresco Acrylics, Archival Ink, background stencils, butterflies from IndigoBlu and a background stamp from Paper Artsy.

I started with the darkest colours which I brayered onto my card which was heavy Smoothy card.



I quickly spritzed the paint which allowed it to run.

The layers were built up using the same stencils and stamps 


I continued to build layers until I felt I had enough.


Then added my feature which I stamped and then painted with the green I had made up. It looks darker because of the underneath paint which has added the depth.


I outlined the butterfly with a Stabilo All and activated it with a little water on a small brush. To finish I stencilled the word


Thanks for you visit and I hope you enjoyed seeing how this was created. Take care and enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.

Big hugs Debs xxx

  10. Thanks you so much Deborah for sharing your technique here. I so love the way you created the butterfly with so much depth - it's just breath-taking: I love that green! Your background is gorgeous too with the fantastic brayering and dripping. You have used the colour palette so well and made a great start to 3UP. Really enjoyed both looking at it on the PA blog and following it more closely on your blog - perfect! xxx
