Hi everyone, well I've had messy hands recently playing with the new PaprArtsy Infusions, I saw Leandra and Emma demo them at the Happy Stampers festival at Port Sunlight earlier this month. I've already shared a few 'plays' on instagram but thought I'd share a few more experiments and details with you here.
This was a happy accident. One of the ways you can use the infusions is to sprinkle them on and then brush over with a glaze which will seal them at the same time. I'd seen some lovely effects with pearl and metallic glaze. I had some left over infusions which had shaken on a piece of glossy card and thought I'd picked up pearl glaze, only when I started to paint with it did I think it looked a bit different...I'd picked up chalk fresco instead! Well I carried on, dried it and rather liked it.
Some gold stamping using a Sara Naumann Eclectica set made for a quick card.
I have used paint before to knock back a vibrant background and there's no reason you can't use it with infusions.
Watered down snowflake fresco brayered over the top.
Add some stamping with archival inks and you have a background.
Those of you who know me will be aware I love grunge paste, so here's a tag which when I shared before I hadn't quite finished, it needed some stitching. I've used a new favourite 'pebbles tied' stencil with the grunge paste.
A coat of fresco in chalk, once dry I sprinkled some sage and blackcurrant infusions spritzed with water and it was looking better.
Love the 'granules' effect
Quick sand back, like that some of the stamping underneath is peeking through.
Well that's the end of part 1 hope you'll come back soon for part 2, I'll be using 3D transparent gel next time.
Thanks as always for stopping by.
