3UP Drum Roll To Emma, Miriam And Judith ....

Tonight we welcome Emma, Miriam and Judith to share their 3UP projects.



I painted the wooden block using Fresco Paints in the following colours Sky, Baltic Blue, Inky Pool and Beach Hut. I then used Grunge Paste through a stencil to create some texture. Next I stamped some circles with StazOn Ink in the areas where there wasn't any Grunge Paste. Once the paste was dry I highlighted the raised areas with more Beach Hut. Next mix some more Grunge Paste with Beach Hut and apply it in a thick layer onto the frame then stamp the "script stamp" into the Grunge Paste.

I took some Metal Card and coloured it with some Alcohol Ink I also used the same colours on the Ideaology metal numbers I had been sent, I then stamped the "gentleman" from Ink and the Dog Wings Plate 04 onto the Metal Card and placed it behind the frame which I then attached to the block.

I stamped the butterfly on to both Metal Card and Acetate, next cut them out and adhere onto the frame. To finish I adhered the numbers on to the canvas and highlighted some raised areas with Treasure Gold in Pewter.

#3Up products ....

Large Hanging Chunky Board, Vantaj Buttons,Black Oval Frame
 As soon as I saw the #3Up products I knew exactly what I wanted to create.


I covered the hanging in Orchid Fresco Paint dry with a heat gun. I then covered the hanging with a layer of Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze, drying  before adding the third layer in Vintage lace. Once dry I rubbed over the hanging with a dry cloth to remove some of the paint and crackle to distress it further.



I coloured some Grunge Paste with Vintage Lace and layered it in patches on the hanging
I then stamped into it using JOFY stamps and dried it with a heat gun
I stamped JOFY 12 flowers using Archival Ink. I then turned the tissue over and painted the back. After drying I attached the flowers to the hanging using Beeswax. I cut around some of the extra flowers and layered them on top of the flowers on the hanging.


I painted the buttons with Fresco Paint and stamped over them Archival Ink. I threaded string and glued them to the hanging.

When I looked at the frame I intially thought about it being cut to create corners but then I thought the swirls looked like flower vines and so decided to cut around some and attach them to the flower stems.  I used a china graph pencil to highlight the flower stems.

Next I highlighted the textured and stamped areas with Rose Quartz Treasure Gold and painted around the hanging with Little Black Dress to finish.

I really enjoyed creating this project - great fun to make.  And I enjoyed looking at the frame in a different way to it's initial intention of it being a frame!


 And last but not least is ....

Judith Smith


I’ve based my project on a love letter theme and I used three sets of stamps ESN05, ID02, and ID03, as I like to mix stamp sets up a lot. I started by coating the plaque with Fresco Finish Paint, graduating from Vanilla down to Rose, then added some texture through a Crafter’s Workshop Stencil (Mini Tile Texture) with Grunge Paste and Puff Paint. I added a loose wash of colour all over the board with Claret and Beach Hut, drying the surface with a heat gun afterwards. I stamped the letter in the top corner. I stamped the images with Archival Ink and coloured them with water based markers, adding a little bit of Fresco Finish for the faces. I painted the wings with FrescoFinish and stamped them with Mini 61, before cutting them in half. 


The square frame was painted with Little Black Dress before adding Crackle Glaze then Vanilla on top. Again, I added a loose wash of Claret and Beach Hut to knock the colour back a little bit. I added some Treasure Gold to the raised texture created by the stencil, the wings, and around the edges of the whole piece. Finally, I stamped some added detail using Snowflake  to the background before assembling the project.

Join us again tomorrow evening when another 3UP sters will be sharing their mystery projects.
