PaperArtsy Fresco paints by Leandra, the owner of Paperartsy, to use on our projects. We were so excited. Frantic Stamper is one of the few online retailers in the US/Canada who carry PaperArtsy products. Not familiar with PaperArtsy?? I first learned of PaperArtsy on my last trip to London when I went to Blade Rubber Stamps. I purchased some PaperArtsy JOFY rubber stamps and I was hooked! I was so happy to find their stamps and paints at Frantic Stamper. Frantic Stamper has a such a huge inventory and really fast shipping. I know because I shop there several times a year.
I put a coat of Faber Castell Gesso over my art journal that had a spray of Bubblegum Pink
Dylusions ink spray on it so the Gesso made it the pink spread out.
Then, I put a small amount of each paint on a piece of Cut-N-Dry foam and
rubbed them randomly all over the cover to make a background.
Next, I cut out a large heart from copy paper and put in on my art journal cover and
traced it with a pencil. Then I used different colors of Archival Inks and several
of my PaperArtsy stamp sets to stamp different shapes on the background.
Then I painted brush strokes out from the heart with Caribbean Sea paint and then on top
of that with the brand new color Baltic Blue. When I finished I outlined
the heart with the Caribbean Blue to add some definition.
I wasn't sure what to do next. I thought about some letters I had and decided the word ART would fit in the space. I painted the letters with the new color of Bubblegum Pink Fresco Paint and doodled around the edges of the heart and the letters with my Faber Castell Black Pitt Pen. Then I covered them with Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel. I just painted them while they were on the craft sheet. It's kind of hard to see how glittery the letters are in the photo, but they are really glittery!
Here is the final art journal cover. Hope you are inspired to make a fun glittery project.
