The Stampin Stasher Challenge #1 - Create your own background

Hello Blogland

Happy New Year!!

I am so excited for this coming year, a lot of new things are in the pipeline - so watch this space!

The first of the new things is a brand new challenge set by
It is a brand new monthly challenge and a new venture for Naomi who kindly invited me along for the journey (thanks hun).

This months challenge is
I must admit this is one of my favourite things to do in terms of crafting as you are free to do what ever you please and have zero restrictions.

The technique I used I learnt from watching PaperArtsy videos and is one of my absolute faves.

Below is some photo's of the process and the projects I made using the page.

Getting started
I took a 12x12 sheet of Tissuestock, it's a bit like tissue paper, a brayer and my Chalk Paints (I want to mention you and use ANY acrylic paints for this technique)

First layer
I started off with a light colour to get a base going for additional layers to 'cling' to.
I simply pour a little paint onto my mat and pick up the colour with my brayer and go over the paper, it doesn't have to be neat and tidy, just go with the flow. 

Second Layer
I simply chose another colour and went over it again, filling in the gaps.

Third Layer
This time I went for a contrasting colour.

Forth Layer
I wasn't certain about the last colour so went for a deeper tone.

I continued to use the same colours in rotation until I was happy with it - I added an extra colour, Limelight, to pick up the green a little more.

Getting ready for the next part
Out came my background stamps and Archival Inks, these are the best ink pads to use when stamping on a painted background.

And here is a couple of projects I made using the page.
