New Fresco Finish Paint

18 of the the 27 new Paperartsy Fresco Finish paints landed in the shop yesterday, just in time for my journaling class!!!! It would have been rude not to use them wouldn't it,so this is what I did.



I used Pumpkin Soup, Smoked Paprika, Autumn Fire, Cinnamon and Hey Pesto. Here are a couple of close ups so that you can see the depth of colour..........pure scrumminess!!!!





 I had to do a quick colour chart, just so that everyone in class could see the magic for themselves.

 All standing to attention in a sparkly new paint rack......nicer than a tray of pastries and an absolute bargain at £3.95 for a bottle of gorgeousness.


I'm in love! These colours are right up my street........simply gorgeous. They are not on the website yet but they are in the shop and of course you can email me linda@lbcrafts.com or call the shop on 01234 714848 with your wish list.

My other journal background also used Fresco Finish paints but these were from the original release. I used Vintage Lace, Butternut, Haystack and London Night.........look no green. It's still hard for me not to use green but I am getting better at it.

Righty ho, I'm off to figure out the next lot of stock reductions for you guys.......maybe back later today.

Fantastic journal pages Lin. Know how you feel about favourite colours, mine are those gorgeous blue/green marine shades at the bottom of your colour chart. Somehow everything I make ends up in this part of the spectrum

So, I'm not the only one finding ot difficult not to use green LOL... I didn't realize it until somebody else made a remark about me always (merily always) using greens...
O well,there are worse things...
