PaperArtsy Clare Lloyd ART

I used 130 lb watercolor paper cut at 6x4.5
Makeup sponge, Vanilla Ice Cream acrylic paint and Yellow Oxide
dabbed and swirled over the whole background.

Stamped background (unity stamp) with black stazon ink.
Stenciled Blue Bonnet acrylic paint with the makeup sponge.  Forgot to take more pictures here!!
Using a makeup sponge, I put paint on a butterfly stamp and stamped in several places. I used Fresco Rose paint.
 Did the same thing using yellow oxide paint and my Unity Joy stamp.  Cut my girl out and glued her on with Scotch quick dry, diecut a butterfly Martha Stewart punch, stamped Survivor (Unity Stamp) and cut with Deckle scissors (edged with rose & black paint using makeup sponge) Add the sentiment with dimensionals.

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice.
