PaperArtsy Launch… Eclectica Designs By Sara Naumann

Hello Everyone
You probably know that it is a very busy week over at the PaperArtsy blog with new product releases whether it be new stamp designs, stencils or fabulous Fresco Finish colours.
Tonight is the launch night for Electica Design Series by Sara Naumann and I am excited as I had the wonderful task of creating with two of Sara’s new stamp sets, ESN13 and ESN15. With those sets I created four samples which I will be sharing over four different blog posts.  What particularly attracted me to first playing with Sara’s designs were the abundance of words/phrases within each stamp set.
Here is a video (also available to view at the PaperArtsy Blog) NOTE:- for the samples Leandra shares made by me, the flower was actually created from ESN15 and not ESN14.  I will be sharing all the samples here when I will go into details for each sample.

For this card I used ESN13 and  the six Fresco Finish chalk paint colours I was assigned to work with were:-
Vanilla, Beach Hut, Lake Wanaka, Guacamole, Sherbert and Spanish Mulberry.
starcardlynnemoncrieffoneVintage French book text was used as the base (stabilised with cardstock) onto which I applied the Frescos with baby wipes. Then I mixed Vanilla with Grunge Paste which I randomly swiped onto the panel … this is the creamy yellow sections.   It was then time to stamp with paint.  The linked circles were stamped with Sherbert and then I mixed Beach Hut and Lake Wanaka, stamping more of the linked circles with this colour. More stamping, this time with ink, stamping the handwritten script.  I like that even with the layers of paint and texture the French text still peeks through which was exactly what I wanted.backgroundlynneOn this card I knew that I wanted the star to be the main feature as it is the most prominent stamp on the ESN13 stamp set. After painting vintage French book text I stamped the star adding a layer of Metallic Glaze to give that beautiful shine.  A shell star button stitched to the star was the only detailing I added.stardetaillynnemoncrieffI played around with the sentiment by stamping parts onto book text already prepared with Frescos (Sherbert, Lake Wanaka and Beach Hut).  They were layered onto the main panel which as well as initially painted with the Frescos, I then added Metallic Glaze followed with touches of Grunge Paste (tinted with Beach Hut and Lake Wanaka).wordslynneAt the stage where I had stamped all the elements and sat playing around with composition I thought to myself that something else was needed ….. lace!  Except I did not have a suitable colour of lace but fear not, all I needed to do was paint the lace with Beach Hut and Lake Wanaka and for the bottom edge the lace was painted with Sherbert. Layered beneath the lace is a piece of PaperArtsy Crunchy Tissue Paper, painted with Sherbert and with the addition of the stamping of the script.
The star, you can see, was attached to twine so that it can hang freely, a little paper punched tag stapled to the twine.paintedlace
