It has long been a family joke that despite my having an O'Level in Art and Design, I cannot produce prettiness with a paintbrush (discounting walls etc). So a week or so ago whilst watching a well known shopping channel that sells crafty stuff, Sheena Douglass was on showing peeps her Paint Profusion techniques. My eyes were out like stalks as I watched Sheena take her stamps and colour the images in using paint techniques. She made it look relatively easy and I liked her approach to using what you have to try out the techniques.
Well my wonderful Hubby said "why not order yourself a set?" "You have been a good girl lately!" Well, who was I to refuse? (I have been on a crafty spending embargo as I am off to BSSBS next month - Yippee!)
So yesterday I set aside some time to sit at my cleared computer desk with some chipboard (backs of chit pads that we use in work - so technically Snippets!). I took some emulsion and tried out the four backgrounds as Sheena suggests...
Then again using different paints...
I actually got a bit carried away and made some 15 backgrounds! Loving the crackle one.
Then I picked out the Daisy stamp set and set to work on a little piece....
I know it isn't perfick and I will need to get some more paints (especially greens) but I am chuffin' chuffed with it!!
Now what can I paint next? Off to the Playground to share my pretty Daisies until we get the real ones!!
