Paper Collage and Watercolour

I am having a 'navy' fest at the moment and came up with this..

Decided to try some watercolour card and Paperartsy Infusions powders. The colour is called In The Navy. Added a black and white picture and some other bits and bobs I am working on at the moment.

Paper Collage-Compaction

I have been saving some paper packaging, almost going to throw away as i was clearing up. As I was screwing them up, this idea came into my head. I put all the bags through a die cutting machine to flatten them up and glued them all together!!

Painted with some acrylic paints, added a circle. Calling this 'compaction'!!!

Paper Collage with Tea Bag.

I painted this piece of card packaging with some dark blue acrylic, then left it for a few days and my inspiration left me!!

After recently playing with an old tea bag, I came up with this..

I do like stamping onto tea bags, works really well..

Exploring some surface treatments using different mediums..

Base layer of Paperartsy Fresco Chalk paint in Caribbean Sea, Distress crayon and scratched some away with the edge of some cardstock. Love the effect, needs some more experimentation.

The substrate is an old piece of building material, attached some scraps of kraft card.

Buttons plate 4 and 6 stamps from Paperartsy created the faces. Lin Brown set 034 was used on the lower part of the ATC's..
