2017 #13 Metallics: Angels with LPC {by Autumn Clark}

2017 Topic 13: Colour Study - Metallics
In this post we offer a very warm welcome to Autumn Clark as a new blogger within the PaperArtsy Creative team. Autumn has a great eye for composition, and she is certainly partial to a good dose of Vintage genre, so she combines her love of both in this post. If you are looking for some traditional, elegant Christmas cards to give friends and family at the end of the year, then this might just hit the spot!


Hello PaperArtsy Blog followers, Autumn Clark with you today, sharing a post on shabby winter elegance to inspire you for your holiday crafting.  

I was so thrilled to work with the Metallics theme because I knew the Lynne Perrella Collection (LPC) would pair beautifully for elegant Christmas designs.  I was inspired to play with my gellie plate and several Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paints to make several cards and a shabby wall hanging.

I had intended on using white card printed with Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint (Nougat) as a base for all of my prints, but somewhere along the way grabbed a sheet of kraft card and was amazed at how beautifully Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint (Pewter) reacted!  This led me to experiment with black card and layering with Fresco Chalk Acrylic Paint (White Fire).  I was so pleased at the softening of the ink when I stamped images from PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection (LPC018) onto the painted card. 


Whether it was stamping or die cutting, the prints yielded a variety of beautiful substrates.  The images are truly angelic, but I was even able to include a masculine card in my mix.  Curled corners and unprinted edges let the base card show through.

I mixed embossing and other metallic papers for a wide range of hues and shine.  



I partially stamped a border from PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection (LPC011) and layered pearls and gold trim for more drama. 


 The script is from PaperArtsy Lynne Perrella Collection (LPC014).

 
On another sample, I stamped the foliage from PaperArtsy Eclectica {Sara Naumann} Collection (ESN17) .


The foliage was stamped in gold over a light background, creating a subtle shimmer and pattern to frame my focal image.


Finally, I designed a winter wall hanging from layered torn chipboard for snowy edges.  I added my stamped image and die cut wings, both embossed in gold.  

Adhering my stamped tissue over the texture allowed me to keep the image intact.  Layers of lace are embedded throughout the panel for a very shabby, wintry look.  


I splattered my textured panel with both metallic paints, which adds such delicate shimmer in real life. 

More and more we find a trend towards neutrals in home and art.  Adding touches of silver, gold and pewter give this palette the perfect festive touch. I truly cannot wait to play with printing on colored card again!  I know you will enjoy this process too.  You could certainly opt for reds, greens and blues if you are into a more colorful palette.  

Until next time, Autumn Clark

2017 #13 Metallics: Christmas Wreath with EEV {by Ruth Mescall}


2017 Topic 13: Colour Study- Metallics



A spot of colour mixing, and gorgeous metallic splats, and Ruth is well on the way to creating another of her inspired projects!

Hi everyone, it's Ruth here with you today, and I'd like to share with you a little home decor project using metallics in a few of my favourite ways. I frequently use metallics in a project and quite often in a subtle way as I'm from the less is more school....most of the time!  
Christmas and metallics just go together so even if you have non Christmassy stamps you can still get the flavour of Christmas. I also like to show how verstaile stamps can be and I'm working with some favourite Ellen Vargo stamps both for the background and the centre piece. These are the stamps I've used to create my Christmas Wreath. 




This was a bit of a journey as I originally thought of making Christmas trees for a canvas or card out of the conical floral image (can you see snow capped metallic accented ones?) but that evolved into a wreath on a card using the current image and then I remembered I had a wicker wreath that could be altered and an accented poinsettia style layered bloom finally evolved. 


I knew I wanted a deep almost burgundy red effect and find using colours next to each other on the colour wheel can really add depth, so pink and blue were also used as well as archival inks. I used the following Fresco Chalk Paints, Cherry Red; London Bus; Bougainvillea; Blueberry and the first metallic I added in was Copper Fresco Chalk Paint



Aren't those gold splashes so rich and luscious? Gold Fresco Chalk Paint and yes it's slightly diluted, I've also added a sprinkle of gold embossing powder. 



This is such an easy stamp to trim and layer up and there are touches of gold on every flower. Not covering all the white card stock when brayering adds contrast.



Is it a flower or is it a 'petal'? Using a hot glue gun enabled me to get lift between the 'petals'. (I found out Poinsettias are made of bracts not petals...)



Dry brushing with Nougat and Snowflake Fresco Chalk Paint altered the frame before I 'tickled' it with White Fire Treasure Gold. I wanted to add a word to help balance the wreath so looking through my Christmas stamps thought the slightly squiggly one from the set below worked well. 






It had to have a dazzling flower centre so an old brown coat button was transformed with White Fire and Onyxite Treasure Gold.  



It was easy to assemble so would be quite a quick and fun project to involve children with and if you haven't used or rarely use metallics, splashes and hints can be a great way to start dabbling and the effect can be quite magical. I also hope you might try mixing similar paints to add depth. I quite like the idea of making leaves for another wreath, using green or autumnal shades or even the different metallic colours available could look stunning! Ruth x

I totally forgot about that words stamp on the Lynne Perrella set!And I would never think to use Ellen's flower head to arrange a wreath either! See this is why we call you magnificent Ruth! You always come up with something unexpected! ~Leandra

2017 Topic 13: Metallics {Topic Intro and Challenge}

 2017 Topic 13: Metallics

Hello everyone, Darcy here with the introduction of our latest topic. 


As you are probably aware, when we start a new round of topics they come in bundles of 4, and the first of those is always colour based. As we are rocking a bit of a Christmas vibe here of late, we thought it made sense to look at metallic as the colour-theme for the next 2 weeks.

Metallic colours have been a huge influence on decor, fashion, clothing, makeup and even nails in the last couple of years, so it's a pretty hot theme. We seem to have moved away from the stark values of Silver and Gold into softer tones of rose gold, platinum, bronze, and also fun colours such as these beads below. They are polymer clay covered in coloured metallic foil. 


Rita Dumais Sim
Anything that is metal or has the appearance of a polished metal can be termed as metallic, generally these items are always shiny. Solid blocks of pigments cannot be metallic alone, they need to be mixed with metal powders or flakes, these reflect the light and generate the 'shine'. 

The use of metals is not new, the origins of metal pigments goes back to the ancient art of 'gold beating' it was early Egyptians that would work gold into super fine sheets, these were then used to overlay other substrates such as wood or bone. As demand grew the sheets became thinner and thinner, this resulted in the edges breaking off. These 'flakes' were then mixed with binders so that they could be used. They also rubbed the gold through a fine mesh to create gold powder, this was then used in inks. Over the years of course cheaper metals were introduced and also metal substitutes. 

We even have metallic pens now. Here is a great comparison sheet. 


Wei-Li
Metals can be added to any substrate in one form or another, by painting, gilding, waxing, leafing or even stitching. For centuries precious metals have been made into threads to use in embroidery and on clothing. Just look at this delicate piece of goldwork. 


Katherine Diuguid
This beautiful piece of calligraphy is walnut ink and gold leafing, if you don't fancy tackling something so intricate you could stamp out some text and paint leaves with gold paint. 

Remember though that metallic paints contain metal flakes or powder, this is usually heavier than the binder and will nearly always sink in the bottle, no matter the brand. So always give your metallic paints a good shake.
Reggie Ezell
Something you might not expect to see decorated is a double bass. I just love this, and while I don't play at all i would love this as a statement piece of art in a room. This was rescued from a fire, renovated and given its copper leafing decoration. 


Gildaxe 
A seasonal one now. this would be a perfect autumnal wreath but also for Christmas too, simple but so effective, this wreath is coloured using spray paint. A couple of coats using very light strokes will give a beautiful even finish. 


Fabiana
Another polymer clay piece now, how utterly amazing is this book cover, so detailed and striking. As you can see this product takes paint and gilding really well. 


Mandarin Duck
These look like real shells, but they are made from metal, they also have hidden tape measures inside. They are vintage now, but you can still find odd ones for sale. Could you make something like this? perhaps papier mache? painted and gilded with Treasure Gold and you would have a wonderful case for a tape measure. 



A few years ago, metal embossing was all the rage, did you have a go at it, did you buy all the tools? why not dig them out and have another go. 


Magdalena Muldoon
if you like the idea of metal embossing and shaping then pop on over to our very own Lin Brown's blog, there you will see some tutorials to make flowers like this one. 


Lin Brown 
Here Leandra shows you how to use PaperArtsy stamps and dies to create a metal flower. 


A simple shape can be transformed by making it shiny, this chipboard heart is covered with mirrored card, then 'grunged up', any size or shape would work with this. Perhaps cut out letters of a name for a child's bedroom. This could look quite industrial, and would be perfect for a boys room. 


Trish Latimer
 This mixed media piece is jam packed with metallic goodies, from the background paints to the gilding on the raised textures and the fabulous array of embellishments. 


Sandra Reynolds
As the festive season is coming how about getting a head start on your wrapping paper, first use your PaperArtsy Fresco paints to create marbling, and then add some gold leaf to add sparkle. 


The Lovely Drawer

Once you have your gift wrap then you can make a start on your cards. This one is made with a mould using paper clay then painted and gilded to give it that subtle metal finish. 


Katy Sue Designs
This one employs embossing powders, we all have those in a drawer, time to get them out and create some magic. 


Richard Wright
Have you tried making your own embellishments? it really is so easy with so many products now available, there are moulds of every conceivable shape these days. they can be filled with clay, or paper clay, or hot glue, gel or UTEE. Once your embellishment is fully set it can be coloured and turned metallic by using PaperArtsy fabulous Treasure Gold. 


Clare Horner
Here Leandra shows how the beautiful colours of Treasure Gold all combine to give a metallic finish that is soft and delicate. 




Here are a few more ideas to bling up your home with a little metallic shine. 

Painted storage jars for a modern twist on vintage jars. 

Kelly
Or what about this fab staircase with patinated brass cladding. 

Modern Style Home 

Or how about these painted stones, PaperArtsy chalk paint will work beautifully on stones and you can colour match them to any room decor. 

Nica Sotiropoulos
These are just a few examples of metallic art, over the next two weeks our guest designers will have even more fabulous creations for you, to inspire and excite and hopefully get you reaching for your stash. 

Don't forget to follow Darcy and Leandra's Pinterest boards if this topic pushes your buttons, you will see plenty more examples to whet your appetite there! I am really looking forward to seeing what you create over the next 2 weeks!

NEW PA Winter Stamps {JoFY} with Jennie Atkinson

NEW Winter 2017: JoFY Collection


It's the final night of our new products, and we wrap up with Jennie Atkinson who has some lovely ideas with JoFY's stamps to round up yet another wonderful release. We don;t normally do this many stamps at Christmas, but the designers were all keen to stir up a Christmas frenzy, and what a lot of treats we have been given! 

We hope you contact one of our stockists to get hold of something that tickles your fancy, and start planning your Christmas ideas too!



All these new products are available from your PaperArtsy stockists now. See details in the stockists list at the foot of this post.

Hi everyone, Jennie Atkinson here. 

Christmas in our house is very much about "made for you" presents with both my husband and I making presents for each other and other members of the family. I do like all my family to have a handmade card I but am normally not that organised to be making them in September ! 

Tonight I wanted to share a few possibilities with these gorgeous JoFY stamps, and for those who know me and know that my usual style is mixed media shabby vintage, then you will realise how I was really challenged! But Jo's stamps are so versatile as I hope you will agree.

Let's take a look at each set in more detail, and some ideas with them to inspire you.


'Noel' by Jennie Atkinson

I really fell in love with this little star stamp and knew it would be great for layering over some of my usual elements.  I don't normally do a "production" run of cards, but I thought this little design would be easy to replicate in multiples. The card is 4" x 4" which I always feel is a lovely size - not too big but can still pack a punch especially if you use a non-festive colour as I have here (Rusty Car Infusions).



I always love being able to isolate a part of the stamp to add elsewhere and the little Noel label was just perfect to cut out and add as part of the flower cluster.  You will also see that I have used the word "Christmas" from the lovely sentiment. 


If you prefer a more seasonal colour the design works jut as well with Tinned Peas Fresco Paint brayered onto Smoothy Cardstock.

Christmas Tag by Jennie Atkinson


I also loved the Christmas tree stamp from this set - it is just SO gorgeous. I love wrapping my presents for the female members of the family in tissue paper and ribbon and thought this stamp would look wonderful as a "centre-piece" gift tag.  My grand daughter loves anything pink and so she even gets her Christmas wrapping in a very non traditional colour.


My pink trees were stamped and cut from a piece of Smoothy Cardstock which had been primed with Chalk Fresco Paint and then coloured with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink with lots of water.  I wanted a more "wishy washy" colour and as the trees and bases are very easy to cut out and layer onto the original stamping this gave me more control to achieve the effect I wanted.


Crackled Baubles by Jennie Atkinson

I am very good at isolating a part of a stamp! it is not that I don't like the whole stamp but I do feel that it can still be as stunning using a small part of the detail on a layered background.



I thought the gorgeous bauble and snowflake stamp would look fabulous on a crackled distressed background. I purposely only used the Crackle Glaze here and there so it would not be too overpowering. I also wanted to try and achieve the same colour theme throughout the card so have used Very Berry Fresco Paint undiluted under the Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze and then brayered it again with Snowflake for the bauble. Plum Archival Ink also allowed me to achieve varying degrees of the same colour. 

All My Love Gift Wallet by Jennie Atkinson

No matter how hard you try there is always someone that you end up having to give a gift of a voucher or money. However, I like to think I have spent time in making a nice gift wallet to put it in. The large tag is cut from Heavy Smoothy Cardstock and primed both on the inside and outside with Chalk Fresco Paint before going in with the Infusions. I wanted to use vintage style elements and ink and find they work well with A Bit Jaded, which also has a festive feel to it.



I wanted to layer some text under the tag and used one of the sentiments stamping it lightly on a piece of primed cardstock. (I do find that if you start one element of the project with Chalk Fresco primed cardstock you need to do it for all the elements in order to maintain the same soft colour.) I love Jo's writing style and so this gave a more free-style feel to the card. The baubles are the perfect size for some additional stamping with sentiments to make it more personal.  


I have followed the same theme through to the inside creating a little pocket for a message tag and the voucher or money. Some wonky and not very good stamping here! but that's why I like to do shabby!

I do hope that these few samples have given you some ideas and shown how versatile Jo's wonderful stamps are as well as working wonderfully with non-festive Infusions and in my usual vintage style.  It has been great fun and they are all wonderful stamps to create with. As always thank you for joining me.
