Paint by Suzanne Franin

Hey Everyone Suzanne here

For my Colour Blast Blog post this week I couldn't decide which photo I like so I did both as they were both to do with paint

You will find the Colour Paste here at the Colour Blast shop or find your nearest Stockist here


Colour Paste Canvas


So for the first canvas after painting with White Gesso  I used the Colour Paste as a paint rather than a paste to paint my very uneven stripes the colours I used are - Apple of my Eye, Blush, Fire Engine, Singin the Blues, Sunshine and Tangerine Dream I did two coats so the colours came out intense like they do when you use them as a paste through a stencil


I also painted the paintbrush that was covered first in BlackGesso which makes the colours look different - I used Fire Engine, Sunshine and Apple of my Eye



Then to do the stencilled dots I used Colour Paste Stormy Weather




I added a few embellishments like the transparent butterfly and the Today which I've had forever I think they were Heidi Swapp 
The dotted card I'm not sure if it's Project Life or Kaiser and then the words are from Tim Holtz's Small Talk sticker book
The paint Brush I just added some flowers and a butterfly that I can't remember where it came from I've had it that long 

Colour Shimmer Cubes Canvas



The second Canvas I splattered the watered down Colour Shimmer Cubes over the canvas after painting it with White Gesso the colours I used are - Apple of my Eye, Fire Engine, Punch, Singin the Blues, Sunshine and Tangerine Dream


Then to do the little frame from Memory Maze I used Colour Shimmer Cube Leather


I painted a small piece of watercolour paper with Tangerine Dream Sunshine and Singin the Blues and used a flower sticker I've had for ever I think it came with the green butterfly from the other canvas and the butterfly on this canvas


I had some old paint brushes that I dipped in the same three colours so it looked like they were the brushes I used to paint the canvas then put a few flowers across the bottom 


I also used another card this time stripes from either Project Life or Kaiser with a Small Talk sticker quote


I had a little clear arrow I've had in my stash for ever - these canvases have been great for using up older pieces 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come back soon x
