PaperArtsy Topic 5 - Blue and Ochre

The newest PaperArtsy topic is Blue and Ochre. I made a very colourful page inspired by this blog post:

I started with a collage of torn deli paper. I sprinkled two sheets of deli paper with Infusions - one with Royal Blood and the other with Golden Sands. I tore the paper into pieces and glued them randomly over my page.

Then I added a bit of Fresco paints - Blueberry, Smurf and Butternut.

Finally, I stamped some flowers and other flowery shapes (from Tracy Scott's stamp sets ETS06 and ETS07 - I will put a link here once I find them in the shop) on white cardstock, cut them out and coloured them in.

... six episodes of Broadchurch later... Geez, this is supposed to be therapeutic? I've always hated colouring books...

To finish it off, I added a quote from Emma's set EEG17.


PaperArtsy Topic 4 - Doors, Windows and Architecture

The 4th PaperArtsy topic was Doors, Windows and Architecture.

I was suffering from a lack of time and inspiration so I was only working on a couple of unfinished backgrounds. First, I made this page:

I didn't submit it because I didn't like it much.

The other background I finished was this:

Oh well... I really need some room to breathe and restart...
