passion painting

 I watched a masterclass by Monica Paruso for  Stamperia  and I loved the project she created so I had a go at creating it for myself and here is my version 

It is an A4 canvas . A piece of Stamperia passion paper was applied to to the canvas and this scene was created over it using texture paste and acrylic paint using a palette knife .A ballerina paper die cut was then shaped with a ball tool and added to the canvas for dimension .. I really enjoyed making this project ...I bought all my Stamperia papers and die cuts and moulds from you will not find better prices anywhere else 

here is the link in case you also want to have a go at the project yourselves

Altered frame and card


Today I am sharing an upcycled photo frame  and slimline card . To alter the cheap white plastic frame I  used gesso , texture paste and tattered angels grey chalk paint on it and then finally dry brushed it with white acrylic paint . The papers and die cuts I used in each panel  are  by Stamperia and are called   Romantic Journal  .. I also used mulberry paper and foamIran flowers , sequins lace and die cut leaves  coloured with distress ink .

The papers and die cuts were from They have all

The new Stamperia ranges and you will not find better prices anywhere for them all
