Lynne Perrella Collage Cut Out Panel Inspired by Keren Baker

 

This week has seen a new Guest Designer on Paper Artsy, a delightful artist called Keren Baker. She calls her style Clean and Simple which as you know, is not normally me, but I feel she is very experimental and imaginative for what I normally associate with this style. I think she really complements the other designers in the Paper Artsy band and I loved everything she made this week. I decided to try my hand at cutting away pieces of the Lynne Perrella collage from LP 030 and you can see how she did it here.

I had intended to use the same frame as Keren as we happened to be going to Ikea the following day but they were £6! When I looked back at the blog post I saw Keren had recycled hers. Sensible girl! So I bought a couple of plastic ones which were a two pack for £2.75. I got into difficulties as I did the same effect she did, but it peeled away on the plastic. This led me to cover the frames which was a very happy accident, results of which I will show you on another day. So I decided to use a postcard size canvas panel. I painted it with Smoked Paprika and stamped it with Mini 62 in Snowflake. I painted a piece of cardstock in shapes of blues, yellows, oranges and stamped the collage and did the cutting away. The wait wasn't too long in A and E fortunately. When we got back I tried out various colours behind the panel and then decided to go with metallic. I embossed a piece of Paper Artsy metal and rubbed it with a bit of alcohol ink. I added a little bit of white gel pen detail.

To finish off I added some lace, some photo corners, and some of the painted buttons I had left over from my button roof!

I am entering this week's Paper Artsy challenge.

  3. I agree with massofhair, the finishing touches are ace and the contrasting colours are a good choice. I do wonder if it is the cutting that prompted that A & E visit? For the record this is why I am not attempting that project!

  8. This looks fabulous, Lucy! I love the subtle colouring and the beautiful detail of the corners and so on. It is a delight to look at. I do love the way you used the Lynne Perrella plate - superb interpretation of Keren's lovely idea. Julie Ann xxx

  9. Fantastic, Lucy! Don't think I'll be repeating this one, not because I don't like it but because of the pain of cutting out those little areas, ha ha!
