Texture with Treasure Gold

This week PaperArtsy HQ has become filming central! Not quite Hollywood...errrr PA-llywood??? LOL 
Mr PaperArtsy is the very capable director and editor, for the most part I try to do as I'm told.  I think he is now know as Hatman Productions....maybe he's found a new vocation... certainly his skills and talents seem to know no bounds. Yay!
We are filming a series of You Tube videos showing all the techniques I was demonstrating at shows throughout the autumn. This will give you some great ideas to get stuck into over the Christmas holiday period. It gives you the perfect excuse to get you friends, family and partners to go shopping online now for all the bits and bobs (or get you a gift certificate), and then after the fuss of Christmas has died down, you can watch the videos, and sit down and have lots of fun with these ideas!
The first two videos that went online today are using Ferro texture paste to get a really nice raised texture, like that in the pictures above of finished samples. This is done with a stencil, Ferro and a bit of heat directly onto a wooden gift box.Then you can add other gorgeous things like Treasure Gold, Fresco Acrylic paint or why not both!
The second video is the same technique onto a tag with Ferro, and then Treasure Gold applied directly to the tag to give a stunning metallic background.
This December we dare you to take the bull by the horns and have a go. Get stuck in. Try it, twist the ideas or colours to suit your preference, but just give something new a try. It's fun, and gets new ideas sparking once you've made a start. 

We are adding more videos almost daily in the next few weeks, so make sure to subscribe to the PaperArtsy Channel on You Tube so you get notifications as soon as the videos are online.

I'll chat to you again tomorrow no doubt!
