Multi Frame

It was a lovely surprise to find that Claire, whom I had just met at stamp magic, was our Guest Designer.
I love the freshness of her Darcy stamping, the understated colours and her crackle contrast,

I decided to have a go. I stamped onto a journal page with black archival and just arranged the stamps on the page.
Next I washed over with PA fresco, Hey Pesto, Mermaid, Limelight and Chartreuse randomly.
I used the same paints to fill in the images and a tiny touch of white pen.
As I didn't have a frame I made some crackly washi tape using masking tape and crackle glaze. i cut it down the centre to make the frames in proportion to the stamped images. I like the contrast between the crisp images and the rustic washi tape.
Thanks Claire for the inspiration and very well done!


  1. What a super idea to translate the 3D box into a 2D page for the same effect! Darcy's bird on the fence never fails to raise a smile... I guess I will have to buy him some time soon!

  2. Lovely understated colours and fantastic images Hazel, such a pretty page:-) xxx

  3. Hi Hazel, I'm so happy you enjoyed my PA project! I love how you've translated it into a journal page, the colours you've used look great together and little Neville on the fence with his white highlighting looks perfect! Claire xx

  4. I love that, Hazel! Gorgeous colour on your washi tape, and of course, great stamps/stamping!

  5. Love this Hazel, it's fab! xxx

  6. What a lovely idea! It looks so fresh,

  8. Wow! This is absolutely gorgeous Hazel! I love the colours tone xx

  9. Brilliant idea to use Claire's inspiration for a journal page Hazel. It looks great!

  10. Delicious fresh springtime greens, and the washi makes a great framing device.
