Summer 2016 #3UP {EKD, EEG and ECL}

Good evening everyone, Leandra and Darcy here again.

It's night 3 of #3UP.

Each night this week, 3 people are UP on the PaperArtsy blog to showcase their crafty skills. They were all randomly selected a few months back, were sent specific stamps and colour products to use however they choose.

All of tonight's bloggers have featured FULL STEP OUTS on their own blogs, so if you would like to find out more, please follow the links, and go and leave a comment here on the PA blog and on their own personal blogs for them; feedback is so important, these bloggers are itching to hear from you!

Tonight we have some of our newest designers who have that fresh modern style to their creations. They fall into our Eclectica³ Category: Emma Godfrey Kim Dellow and Clare Lloyd. It's only fitting then that they were given bright colours to work with!

Enjoy, you are in for another wonderful treat!!

First up this evening we have Carol Fox

Hello I am Carol Fox. I like to play with Ink, Paint and Stamps, I love to Journal and enjoy bringing the techniques I have learnt into my other projects.

I have made three 4 x 4 coasters. I quite often add a little stand to the back of these and send them instead of birthday cards.

I had never used Fresco Paints on My Gelli Plate Before. But I loved how bright the colours stayed and how well they blended on the Gelli.

This is the first time I had used my pencils directly over the top of Fresco Paint and with it being so toothy as a chalk paint, I was mega delighted with how the colour laid down and blended over the paint. I love how easy the images were to colour, nice basic shapes easy to add as much or as little detail as you want to them.

To see the full project please visit my blog post HERE.

Next up this evening we have Corrie Herriman

Hello, I am Corrie Herriman, I live in the Netherlands and am 55 years young. I am really happy when I am covered in paint and ink. Mixed Media is my passion.

I have really enjoyed making this project as it took me out of my comfort zone and gave me lots of inspiration to make more of these in the future. I had never even attempted to make an art doll but decided to give it a go for this project.

I love using acrylic paints in every way you can think of and here I used them for the base colour of the dress and for the flowers. I also love collage, so I painted the paper, stamped the flowers, added some more colour to them with coloured pencils and collaged them onto the dress.

I love, love colouring with Copic Markers, they are my go to product for colouring images. They are quick and easy to use and give fabulously blended results every time. I think this face came out lovely !

Finally we have a project from Rachel Fisher

Hello I am Rachel Fisher and I am a widowed mum of two girls. I love to craft - particularly mixed media and when not crafting I enjoy swimming and cycling and grow my own veggies!

This is my shadow box created using beautiful stamps from PaperArtsy and translucent fresco paints. The stamps worked beautifully every time producing crisp images even when stamping with paints.

Here is my preferred method for adding paint to flat surfaces - my trusty brayer! My favourite thing about the paints in this project was the way the red and yellow blended to produce orange - I was even able to produce a great ombre ... lovely!!

I like this corner of the project best - its got that fabulous crackle achieved using crackle glaze and also the mixed up colour from the blue paint applied over the yellow. That's the flowers that I then highlighted using white paint. 

To see the full project please visit my blog post HERE.

Oh my goodness, more fabulous projects from tonight's guests, and I am amazed at how seamlessly you have mashed up 3 stamp collections! This is certainly turning out to be such a fab week. This evening everyone has chosen bright funky colours and all those flowers just pop right off the surfaces. 

We have more inspiration tomorrow, see you then! ~Darcy
