Playing with Dylusions paints

A2A - Dylusions Paints, Sideshow Tim Holtz
I recently purchased some Dylusions paints - a new toy to play with! I watched a couple of Dina Wakely videos too - I know, a bit illogical - should have used her paints!
I love her artistic way of using paints to create a background and so gave it a go. I added lots of water to the paint and after the initial (fairly random) placing of the paint on the card - let the water do the work and left it alone (a hard thing for me!). There were a couple of yuk's but I quite liked this one.
I added some complimentary coloured stencilling and stamping.
 
This is my latest creation for Country View Crafts 'Travel' themed challenge.

Inspired by Seth Apter and Frankie gets bored

Seth Apter style journal page - Addicted to Art
I was lucky to attend one of Seth Apter's UK workshops recently and we did lot's of layering techniques with PaperArtsy Fresco acrylics and used some of his stamps, dies and stencils.

I decided to try a Seth inspired page in my journal - actually a double page. The word stamps and stencilled circles are from his range. I used a load of PaperArtsy Fresco paints including two from the new Seth Apter range - Buff and Terracotta.

As some people know my blog url was created a long time before I actually started blogging - when my cat 'Frankie' really did eat worms - I think she has grown out of it. So I think I might rename it Frankie Gets Bored (while I am crafting) and resorts to stealing my craft room chair so I have to work standing up. Here she is while I was doing this page...
 
Back tomorrow with another Guest Design project for That's Crafty!
