PaperArtsy project 'Winter Arch'

Hello, It's Etsuko here, I'm very happy to be invited to the PaperArtsy blog today. I live in small town Saga the west  of Japan. A year and a half ago, I was very shocked when I saw the youtube PA tutorial by Leandra. Exactly that was what I want. I'm crazy much to the PA stamps and Fresco paint from the time.

I used the lovely small arch.
So I started to filled with white gesso whole of the arch. Second layer of the front was I mixed gold glitter and Golden Heavy Gel then I used Lin Brown's ELB006 stencil  and I was sprayed with the Fresco Beach Hut.

I then starting with the back side, I used South Pacific as a base coat and then Hint of Mint over the top of the Fresco Crackle Glaze. And I made arch's bricks by plastic clay and stamped HP1107EZ onto the clay.

I painted the bricks and sticked by Golden Heavy Gel onto the back side.
After I stamped Lynne Perrella LPC006 tower onto the Smooth White card by Archival Jet Black, and I was to add some silver glitter to highlight the texture.

Finally I made front side, I stamped Lynne Perrella LPC028, LPC004 lovely lady and  flowers onto the Smooth White card I then some colored and fussy cut it. These colour were little bright so I used UTEE. NOEL is Lin Brown's Christmas stamp collection ELB11. And finished by adding some embellishments.

To used clay and Medium was very fun this time! And I'll more give it a go!!
I hope you've enjoyed the projects and I want see your beautiful things!!
Thank you so much.
