3up Drum Roll To Jax, Nicky And Gabrielle ....

Tonight we have another three "3UP" sters showcasing their mystery products, so without further ado please welcome Jax, Nicky and Gabrielle ....

Jacqui Hall (aka Jax)



My #3UP ingredients were a 15cm x15cm Artimeo Box Frame, 3 Wooden Butterfiles and Ideaology numbers 3 and 7 in Silver along with brads to attach them.  I started by colouring the numbers in Treasured Gold Aquamarine and by gessoing the frame. I painted the buttuerflies with Fresco Finish – Pansy for two and Very Berry for one, the larger of the two Pansy ones I then applied a dry brush coat of ZestyZing  and then spritzed all 3 with a mica spray.  I then based the frame recess with Guacamole and dry brushed with Bora Bora, which became the base for the frame itself and the card for the sentiment. 

I dry brushed Treasure Gold Renaissance over the frame.  I had precut the diecut shape within the recess to test a die onto pearlescent card, but to see how it would look, and because I could, I drybrushed the image with Aquamarine, and then glued this to the base of the recess.  I stamped the sentiment from HTPX04EZ and drybushed this with the Aquamarine too. Using the flourish from HP1005 I stamped onto the wings of two the butterflies, I then went a tad mad with JOFY10 and stamped around the edges of the frame.  I then attached the embellishments and the sentiment using strong glue (the brads are there purely for show).

Next up is ....




After a little modification of the Chunky Hanging Board, I coated the whole thing in French Roast, I then used a watered down wash of Blood Orange followed by some scrunched Crunchy stamping {also in Blood Orange} to give the surface a bit of texture.

 I used several of the 'Watch Bodies' to create a faux camera effect, embedding the first body into the board, including a new Lynne Perrella image in it's centre. I then built up with another body and an empty micropore tape tube {it was a perfect fit}, stamping images from one of the new Lynne Perrella sets onto tissue paper and wrapping around creating the faux lens, I edged this with a final body {also a perfect fit.. it was like it was meant to be!}


 I made a faux flash completing the look using some Metal Card that I embossed,

For the inside, I cut some strips of watercolour paper and folded into a concertina, I stamped more of the Lynne Perrella images in Black Archival Ink, and some of the new Eclectica Lin Brown images {ELB01}, the leaves in Olive Archival Ink and the flowers in a mix of Blood Orange Claret and Snowflake Fresco Paints, applied with some Cut N Dry foam {as demoed by Lin at Ally Pally}. I masked areas as I went along. I also stamped and cut a few of Lin's leaves layering them up in places.


  
I attached the concertina to each side of the board to create a book when opened.
I finished off the back with more Lynne Perrella stamping, a couple of brads, and one of the 'Vintaj Buttons' to hide where I attached the loop to keep the piece closed.

And last but not least tonight is ....

Gabrielle Price


I used Claret and Very Berry Paints to build up layers and then in one layer I added a stencil. I sanded the whole piece and then added two Grunge Paste swirls. Random stamping in the background and a little Classic Treasure Gold on the edges finished the background. The sticky heart was pounced on with more paint to tone it down and then added to some corrugated card and the end of a giant tag! I made a flower with a brass button centre




I don't know about you guys buy we at PA HQ are certainly enjoying seeing what has been made with the mystery goodies .... more 3UP fun tomorrow night Woop!
