I received a lovely email from Valerie-Jael and a link to her blog about some of her work. (See below.) I am posting directly from her blog…This first post is about the tag using our Aspen Trees template TCW252s (6×6).
“Today I just have one tag to share. I spent a lot of time painting yesterday, but it’s not finished yet. I have made a tag with a sponged ink background for the Unruly Paper Arts RAQ 1. I used my birch tree mask, and sponged gradient colours of DI through the trees. The word *Treasure* has been used as focal image over the trees, and I added some prima flowers and ribbon in complementary colours. I am also linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show, where this week a TH technique must be used.”
Here’s what Valerie-Jael writes about the above canvas which uses the Cubist stencil TCW248 AND the mini Harlequin TCW202s (can you see it?):
“For Paint Party Friday I have re-purposed another canvas, once again using acrylics in purple and green shades. I have called it *Purple moon-walk*. The canvas is 15×15″. I used my fave squares stencil and structure paste to do the background, before painting and adding Stickles, the moon and the umbrella men. The raised squares have been embossed with embossing powder and perfect pearls.”
Thanks for sharing, Valerie-Jael!
