Be True by Paula Perry

Hello, it’s Paula here today to share my recent play with the gorgeous products from ArtStacks. I’m so lucky to be on this team, the papers are gorgeous and lovely to create with.

Once again, this page started as a ‘mop up’ page in my journal. In other words, any excess paint from other projects was added here. Some, like the pink, red and the yellow paint, was scraped on with a spatula through a stencil (mainly because my yellow is so old, it was drying out). I then randomly stamped around the page. I added some ArtStacks tissue paper – flowers from the Anemones and Friends pack and the face from the Faces and Figures pack. I love these faces and I love adding them to painted backgrounds, when the backgrounds aren’t too busy. Here I’ve placed her over a ‘quieter’ spot towards the middle of my double page. I’m not great at shading faces so I didn’t even try. I embrace whatever comes up from underneath. The only thing I have done is colour the whites of the eyes and colour-in the lips. I coloured in the flowers, just to highlight them a little. 

I’ve cut a figure out of cardstock from the Deb Weiers Wonky Critters pack, edging it with Distress oxide. My title “Be true to yourself’ is from the All Dressed Up pack. I’ve also added some black circles as contrast.

The packs I used are:

Anemones & Friends

Faces & Figures

Deb Weiers Wonky Critters

All Dressed Up

I hope you can create something this weekend!
