FOREVER OM! by Linda Pearson

 


The delightful ‘Forever My Always’ collection by Fiona Paltridge is a wonderful compliment to this golden buddha focal point.  A cornacopia of FMA scrapbook papers, stencils, Colourblast pastes dies, and gold leaf embellishments along with my fav Buddha stencil make this a stunning layout or mixed media page for your journal.

Bee Arty products used in this project:

Texture Paste + sand or Fiber paste
Payne's grey heavy acrylic paint (blue/black)
Gold leaf and sizing adhesive
Gold foil card and an extra sheet of White Cardstock 350gsm coloured with Paynes grey acrylic paint (dry off) for die cutting shapes.
Palette knife (metal and silicone)
Paint palette
 


Fussy cut the flower sprays from the Always 30x30cm scrapbooking paper and the Forever 30x30cm scrapbooking paper.   Keep the Always offcut paper to be used as your under paper for the project.

 


                      

Adhere the Always off cut paper to the White Cardstock 350gsm base.  Dry off.

 

 

    

Using the Bling Colour paste add a small amount of Sienna Colour paste to the Bling … mix up an apricot/mushroom pink to match the paper colour way.  



Spread the paste randomly over the cut out area continuing over the design randomly.



         

Apply thin coat of gold leaf sizing adhesive over several areas of the  paper, allow to dry off to a tacky finish.   Place the gold leaf over the tacky areas brush away excess leaf.




Mix a good amount texture paste with some sand (this helps to add grainy texture .. good substitute if you don’t have Fiber paste). 

Add Payne's grey acrylic paint to the mix.  Apply through the Buddha 1 – A4 mask and stencil carefully but thickly. 

Try to leave some ridges in the paste to provide depth.  Allow to dry thoroughly.


          

Mix more of the Apricot/Mushroom coloured Colour paste (bling and Sienna). Apply the Humps A6 stencil over several areas of the page (white areas). 

 

 

Apply thin coat of gold leaf sizing adhesive over one side of the Buddha, allow to dry off to a tacky finish.   Place and pat down the gold leaf over the tacky areas brush away excess leaf.



               

Cut several Diamond – metal die shapes from the gold foil card. 

Cut lots of My Flower – metal die flowers from the gold foil card and from the painted cardstock. 




Arrange the die-cut pieces around the paper focusing around the bottom of the Buddhas and edges of the page.  Adhere the cut pieces to the page.  Rub some gold paint around the shapes; Buddhas, leaves and other shapes.

I hope you are inspired to engage with this amazing floral collection but most importantly, enjoy the process. 



Bye for now! … from Linda
