PaperArty Challenge blog topic Sprays.

Recently from the Saga of early summer temperatures,
Hello friends and welcome to my blog garden.
Over on the PA challenge blog that topic is 'Sprays' and it is not good topic for me. I used Stencil Girl's stencil by some texture paste onto the grey board.

I sprayed three times with Dirondack Color Wash on the background and it was little dark. I like the left one but beads lines did not need. 

Then I tried another one, I used tiny spray bottles by Banana, Caribbean Sea, Bougainvillea Fresco  and  water. Then I stenciled with Emma's PS015 by Dolly Mix Fresco. And I used 'White Fire' Treasure Gold onto the Stencil Girl's stencil.  Over on the today's PA blog Julie Ann has been back and she drew beautiful lady's face. I inspired by her lovely drawing and I wanted to try it too...that is my first step, it's no good but I'd better go for it.. Then I stamped Darcy's butterflies EM05, EDY11(leaf) and EDY02 onto the White Stamping Card. by Archival Jet Black and little painted. 'Garden of Dreams' words from Lin Brown A5 stamp ELB04. Finally I distressed to inked here and there by TM's Walnut Stain.
Thank you so much for dropping by here and have a nice weekend!

  1. Hi there, Etsuko! You were very quick off the mark! I am totally in love with your creation, especially the sentiment you have chosen. The spraying looks wonderfully magical and dreamy and the faces are really sweet and lovely. What a great idea to combine them with Darcy's beautiful butterflies: they look as if they are wearing lacy collars. xxx

  2. Wow these panels are all so wonderfully made, your colors blends so well together and I love the texture on them all, lovely garden of dreams.

  3. This is wonderful! I love those backgrounds Etsuko.
    Another Outlander tomorrow! :-)
