Photo Video Tuesday

Hello everyone, and welcome. I thought it might be nice to share how my projects progress by making videos of the photos. I know it's very last year, or is that last decade? Anyway I like them, and I'm not very good at making real videos. I'm aiming to start with one a fortnight on a Tuesday. I'll probably be tweaking the format etc. for a bit, so any feedback greatly received.

Today I am sharing a journal page inspired by the new challenge over at Paper Artsy, which is Circles. I am entering this page into the challenge.


It's well worth a visit to PA blog as it is a wealth of crafty inspiration and 'how to' videos by Leandra. This week there is a video from Limor Webber on the blog, which inspired my page. 

I have to admit, I'm still stuck on the previous topic and playing with mediums, so when I saw her video I knew it was perfect for me. 

                                                                  The Photo Video

First, using  Little Black Dress Fresco Acrylic, I stamped circles using a round distress sponge all over the page. I  used various pressures so that the circles were inconsistent. 

I used Primary Elements mixed with Matt Medium  in Purple, Yellow and Orange, all of which were scraped on with a palette knife.  I then used a Thistle stamp with Archival ink in Watering Can all over the pages. 

The circles are various lids which were coated in black Acrylic Ink. Once dry, I mixed Fresco Acrylic Paint in Blue Glass with some Crystal Glitter Decou-Paig and painted some of the circles. The other 
circles are painted with Snow Flake mixed the same. Both paints acted like a glaze which was the 

effect I wanted, as I still wanted to see the background through them. I added shade using a Black Stabilo pencil and highlights with a White Port Folio crayon.
I thought about finishing with a sentiment but nothing would come to mind, so I left it without.

Products I used:

Fresco Acrylic paint 
ELB 22 

Decou-Page Crystal Glitter
Matt Medium

Primary Elements 

Well that's me done for night, see you soon and take care.

  1. Wow! I love the boldness and translucency you've achieved on this piece using those amazing techniques. A real stunner. As I can't make a video of stills let alone one with movement, I thought it was a great way to show the steps! Never heard of Fiona before but lovely voice. xx

  2. great circles page, love the colours - wouldn't know where to start making a video, so good on you!
