Guest Blogging for PaperArtsy (May Project 1).

Finally. FINALLY I can make the formal announcement that I am a guest designer for PaperArtsy for semester 2 of 2013.It's been so hard not to talk about it, a few people knew, and some guessed, but for the most part I was keeping it quiet. But my term has arrived.

 I will be blogging projects, made with PaperArtsy products, from now until the end of Aug.

One week in May, one week in June,one week in July and one week in August.

My first week starts right here and now.

I am so excited and more than a little terrified, I really hope you like the projects, and would love to see you use some of the techniques. My projects tend to be a little more involved, but there is no need to try and do the whole thing, just take something from it . Try a technique or a colour scheme, or take the idea and make it your own.

Here is my first project.

It is a set of vintage coasters, just what you need for an old fashioned tea party.

You will need  some old plain coasters and some of the gorgeous PAPERARTSY FRESCO PAINT...

Here is a close up of a couple of them...

Please go on over to the PAPERARTSY BLOG...   and see my blog post about how I created them. Have a go at something similar yourself and link up on the PaperArtsy blog and you could win yourself a great prize.

Come back tomorrow for project number 2.
