PaperArtsy Topic 6 'Grunge paste' no.2

Hello friends and welcome.
This is my second entry to the PaperArtsy Challenge Blog.
First one took little longer and heavy taste but second tag was so quick done.
The beginning I was glued some die cut piece and a book piece to the 8 tag.
I then painted some fresco with water.

I used modeling paste upper and bottom of the 8 tag, and when it dried I rubbed black gesso onto the modeling paste. I then used some alphabet stencil with mixed gloss gel and mica powder.
I stamped Sara's new ESN13 'star' by Stazon Jet Black onto the shrink plastic, and painted by Tangerine Twist Fresco. Finally I used grunge paste onto the small corrugated paper piece. Then I was glued the star onto the corrugated paper, Shakespeare's quote from the same Sara's ESN13.

Thank you so much for stopping by, Have a nice weekend.

PA topic No.5 'Deconstruction' Tag ATC Folder'

Hello friends and welcome.
Over on the PA blog topic No5 the new topic is 'Deconstruction' I never heard this word and I checked Leandra's video. Soon I tried to make first one 'Tag ATC Folder'.
I was very inspired by Jo's topic no.4 ' Hidden words '. It was very nice mini book and the cover was like a special antique skin. Also I made the surface of the folder according to her tutorial.

 These are 4 layers, Texture Past Graphite (She used sand gel medium), white gesso, French Roast Fresco and Crackle Glaze. (of the left)   Added Nougat Fresco. Wow!I love the crackle. After I used sandpaper to remove some of the Nougat.  I then sealed these layers with Satin Glaze (of the right)        
I used Prima stencils by French Roast and Chocolate Pudding Fresco. (of the left)  Then I painted by Snowflake Fresco and I blew the water. I then repeated three times.  (of the right)

I made six ATC, stamped LPC030  by Coffee Archival onto the white stamping card.

This is the front. The frame- I stamped same LPC030 and used some pastels then I cut it. I mixed Modeling Paste and Chocolate Pudding Fresco then put on the folder front. Also I put the Lynne's lady card onto the Modeling paste while the paste does not dry. When it dried I used White Fire Treasure Gold onto the paste.
Finally I was fitted with a latch.

Thank you stopping by have a happy craft-end !!
