A couple of weeks ago I wouldn't have had a clue what that meant but having met up with all my blogging friends at Ally Pally I finally got sucked into Twitter and we've been chatting ever since. Then this tag suddenly appeared - #3UP. No one knew what it was but apparently it was a good thing to use and a few days later it became clear that the #3UPers were entered into a draw to receive a mystery parcel containing 3 items which we had to incorporate into a project. Today's the first day and they are appearing all this week on the Paper Artsy blog. You can see mine here along with the 2 other #3UPers chosen today.
Of course, I forgot to take photos of my 3 items. Item 1: two 4 x 4 pieces of greyboard; item 2: a square metal embellishment (above); item 3: two Vintaj metal discs. Really the whole thing was an experiment in textures and paints. I used a Crafter's Workshop harlequin stencil and put Golden Fibre Paste through it on the outside and then covered it in various Fresco paints. The words come from a Lynne Perella plate which I used throughout.
The shell stamp is from the LP plate as above.
Two more of the images from the same plate coloured to match. I used another stencil here for the background. The two Vintaj metal discs were stamped and coloured with the shell stamp and used to hide the brads that hold the hinge in place.
Thanks to the guys at PA for letting me take part - it was great fun!
