This week I am sharing a project featuring some of the newer products on sale at That’s Crafty, combining a few Character Constructions Paris Flea stamps, a frame from a That’s Crafty House Shrine and an Affirmation from Lynne’s Affirmations (I will have more to say on this in an upcoming post!)
If you are interested in any of the Character Constructions stamps not displayed on the website, contact Laura with your enquiries.

Palette Knife (or old credit/gift card)
Cut white/greyboard to suitable size as backing for house frame, applying Gesso to both before applying Fresco paints.
Once dry, onto the frame, stamp various stamps such as text, paintbrush, paint tube, markings, etc. I stamped all with second, third generation stamping, stamping off onto scrap paper.
Continue stamping by stamping a paint tube at the lower corner and edging frame with one of the EAA stamps. Edge frame with white paint pen.
With French Roast, stamp the words, art girl, using the EAA alphabet stamps. Edge with white paint pen.
For the white/greyboard panel, stamp paintbrush, text and stars and Affirmation. Create drips with paint pen.
Layer frame to board with silicone glue.
Onto smoothy cardstock, apply the various paints before stamping the following:-
Paris Flea No. 1:- doll, largest heart
Paris Flea No. 2:- ink up arms only and paintbrush (stamp paintbrush several times)
Paris Flea No. 3:- skirt
Paris Flea No. 4:- beret, bow
PaperArtsy EEA04:- painttube
Fussy cut all the stamped elements.
For the skirt, create dots by “stamping” end of handle from foam brush into French Roast paint. For her pendant, adhere rhinestones around edge of heart.
Begin to assemble the doll. By tilting the elements at slight angles, you bring character to the paper doll.
Before adhering the doll to the frame, stamp paintbrushes onto frame, to give appearance they are poking out from her beret.
Layer fussy cut paintbrushes for dimension. Attach paintbrush to her hand.
Finally, adhere stamped paint tube and paintbrushes to lower corner.
The Art Girl is cosy in her home and ready to have some artsy fun!
Until next time,
