Eternal Stars by Lynne Moncrieff


 
 

This week I have been playing with some new PaperArtsy products in the form of new colours of Fresco Chalk Acrylics and also new Designs by Sara Naumann.

The time intensive part and the fun part was the background where I literally gathered a bundle of paints, heat gun, spray and mica flakes.
 

Supplies

Fresco Chalk Finish Acrylics:-  Snowflake, Purple Rain, Blueberry, Wisteria, Lavender, Smurf, Blue Oyster, Glass Blue, Pewter  and Limited Edition JOFY Paint Set 3 (Southern Skies)
Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mica Flakes:- Luna Silver and Tarnished Bronze
Palette Knife (or old credit card)
Gilding Wax in silver (I used Treasure Gold but That’s Crafty stock substitutes)
Extra:- scrap of lace and vintage Bingo card

 

Instructions:-


Randomly apply Grunge Paste, only small patches here and there, creating texture while the paste is still wet. 

Apply Fresco Chalk paint, building up layers. I would mist the paint, allowing the paint to drip down the panel. Working with opaque and translucent paints creates a nice result. In between layers also stamp with paint.

For the final layer stamp with StazOn, script, linked circles and music score. 

Spray panel with Brushed Pewter, misting with water and allowing to drip down the panel. 
 
 
 
 

Dilute Snowflake with water and flick onto panel with watercolour brush.
 
 

 

Paint lace with Fresco Blueberry and Purple Rain, adhering to panel once dry.

Apply Smurf and Blue Oyster to white cardstock. Onto an area of the cardstock, large enough to stamp the star, apply Pewter. Onto the first area stamp two of the phrases and on the panel with the Pewter, stamp the star.

Cut around the star and words, edging with Black Soot and gilding wax.
 
 
 
 

Adhere star to panel, adding a fragment of the painted lace along with a scattering of mica flakes.
 
 
 
 

Have fun creating found poetry from the word tiles.  Apply mica flakes to the panel before adhering the word tiles.

Finally apply gilding wax to edge of panel.
 

Until next time,

Lynne
