2015 #23 Christmas Frame {By Paula Pascual}

Hi everyone! My name is Paula Pascual and I am excited to be back at the PaperArtsy blog with a little project to gift in Christmas: a small frame perfect as a Christmas ornament.There is nothing more relaxing to me than the brayer paint technique. It's just so much fun, and perfect to create quick and easy backgrounds.

For this project I used: Eclectica³ {Lin Brown} Plate 10...

...and Fresco paints in Antarctic, Mermaid and Spanish Mulberry, and smoothy cardstock.

Step One: On a white piece of card I used the acrylic paint technique of using a brayer to cover the whole area. (see this video series from Leandra for variations on brayered paint backgrounds: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Masterboard)

Step Two: Once dried, I stamped the 'Noel' message from Lin Brown's set (ELB10) using Versamark ink so that I could then emboss it after.

Step Three: I sprinkled the embossing powder over it and tapped the excess off. I wanted some specks to remain to create a bit of a silver sparks though.

Then, I heat emboss it.

Step Four: Using a very very fine brush I coloured in the letters using Spanish Mulberry.

Step Five: On a separate piece of card I did the same brayer technique for another background and then I layered it, and added to a silver frame.

Of course, I could not stop there, so I made a Christmas card using the same techniques.

And used the left over card to create a tag for gift wrapping, simply stamp and emboss the snowflake, which is also from the same Lin Brown set.

I hope you like these ideas and have a go too.
