Evening everyone, I hope you are all well. Today I have an Abstract I created to enter the Paper Artsy challenge. I love playing this way and so when Leandra announced the theme I knew I would have to play.

I brayered several colours in layers onto a grey/white board 8x8 from Paper Artsy. The Fresco Acrylic paints l used were Nougart, Caramel, French Roast,


I then added a little Lake Wanika, and gave it a good dry. I sprinkled some blue Bister powder and spritzed it with water. I manipulate the board to move the colour and then dried it. I sprayed some Lyndy's Dyes Opal Spray Oats, and Tme Travel Teal.


I added some More Bisters in Blue and dried the board. Using the Lid and Cherry Red Fresco Acrylic paint I added 3 circles.

To finish I added some Dutch Gold Leaf. I have had this years and found it during my big tidy up.

And there you go! See you all soon, take care Debs xxx
