Hello everyone, Jacqui here. You have no idea how chuffed I am to be writing this, although as you read this I’ll be hiding behind the sofa.. I began this little piece by thinking how nice it would be to think of spring coming and as it’s Mother’s day soon, I decided to make a little framed picture.
I started by base coating a piece of grey board cut to fit my frame and used Limelight, Guacamole, Bora Bora, Ice Blue and Beach Hut Fresco Finish paints to get the landscape feel. Blending each change in colour to avoid harsh lines. I also selected some colours for my flowers.
I had painted my background with the board in a landscape orientation, but then realized the stamps I wanted to use wouldn’t work this way round. So I recreated the background but in portrait orientation and then got to work adding the flowers
I chose to use Pumpkin Soup, Limelight, Sage, London Bus and Nougat Fresco’s, however I watered them all down so they were more the consistency of watercolours. Once finished, I re-stamped the big daisy over the top of itself to redefine it. I then used a combination of pinks and purples on the frame, gently blended,with the darker shades in the corners.
I then stamped the flowers from JOFY 09. up the sides of the frame, before adding a little Royal Amethyst and Renaissance Treasure Gold .
Finally I stamped the words from JOFY09 along the bottom of the frame.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my framed flower project come together, thanks for reading. Jax.
A huge thank you to Jax from all at PaperArtsy HQ, it is great to have one of our #PATWITS on the blog tonight. We really love how you continued the flower stamping from the picture over onto the frame. Often frames are neglected and this is a great way to create continuity on a piece.
