PaperArtsy Challenge...

This is my creation for the PaperArtsy challenge this week.
I have never tried out the peeled paint technique using acrylic paints before and was so inspired by Leisbeth's project.

So I painted a piece of board with Eco Crafts Acrylic paint in Lake, Clam Shell and New Grass. When this had dried I stamped some musical elements onto the board.

Using my fingers I applied some Vaseline to areas of the stamped images, when this had dried I painted the project all over with New Grass.

When this was dry I rubbed away where I had placed the Vaseline, really pleased with the result. I cut out 3 circles in different sizes and embossed these with a musical score embossing folder.

I painted these with the same brand of paint in Old Gold and rubbed some New Grass to highlight the embossing.

The figure was the result of playing with some Martha Stewart Paperclay and a mould that I had made. I painted this with the Old Gold and highlighted with New Grass.

I stamped some musical notes with Memento Ink in Bamboo leaves, and also embossed with some gold embossing powder.

I finished off with a metal nib.

I was really pleased with the result, and would like to thank Liesbeth for the inspiration, and for sharing the wonderful creation. I will be trying out this technique again!!
