The Trailblazers by Paula Tidman


As summer is coming to an end, I thought I would make a travel themed project.
The frame is a Wendy Vecchi Art Parts and has been painted and inked using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints in Ice Blue, Blue Lagoon and Butternut and some chalk inks and gilders patina and gold paste. I glued on some printed tissue paper from my stash - Tim Holtz Tissue Tape would work equally well.

For the central image, I used B Line Designs Travelers and Postcard Collage stamps and the balloon is from Hero Arts Pastimes set. The travellers and the balloon were stamped first, then masked and then I stamped the postcard collage stamp. I buffed on Distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Old Paper and Weathered Wood for the background and glued to the frame using Matte Medium.
Finally, I added some chain to complete my frame.
