About Me

Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

Paperartsy - Paint & Infusions canvas

Good evening all,

I am thrilled to share with you a project I have up on the Paperartsy blog this evening.

The current challenge at Paperartsy is Paint with Infusions.  I chose to combine the two on a 12 x 12 canvas board.

Using Antarctic & Nougat Paperartsy Fresco paint I put down a base on the canvas.  I stamped my main image directly onto the canvas and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I masked off the central flower so I could add some stamping behind the flower and also add some grunge paste.

Once the grunge paste had dried I was able to sprinkle the Infusions onto the canvas, spritz with water and watch the transformation take place. 

I added some splattered gold acrylic paint,  I love the way it breaks up the colours with a hint of shimmer. 

I adhered some sequins to the finished piece and framed.   I love using sequins in my projects as they catch the light and twinkle before your eyes. 

Thank you for stopping by.    All products are available from Paperartsy stockists listed on the blog.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit?  I love to hear your comments, they are all great fully received.

Crafty hugs,
