Catching up in my Paperartsy journal

I’ve been a little delayed in keeping up with the Paperartsy challenges but finally caught up this weekend.

Tonight I am sharing the ‘our house’ themed page.  I struggled with this but got there eventually.


The background is scrap bits of paper and cardstock off the desk glued down and then gesso over the top. Then I added texture paste through a brick wall stencil across the bottom. And then the word dream across the top.

Once it was dry I added distress stains with ground espresso at the bottom, abandoned coral over the dream and then Mermaid Lagoon for the left hand side. I let it drip for a bit and settle in places and then patted it dry to keep a more subtle colour.

Then I got stuck.

I finally settled on some art journey stamps which are Dutch houses… always a favourite place of mine… and stamped these onto tissue paper and then adhered them along the bottom. As usual I was slightly heavy handed in places but mainly they were ok.

I finished off the page with some random stamping using Tap Tap Tap stamps and Timeless Textures and the word stamps from the art journey set.

Pleased with the end result on this… Finally got there!

Happy crafting!
