Handpainted Paper Sunday Freebie 3



Another handpainted paper Sunday Freebie.


This is the third Sunday
that I am posting some of my painted papers as a freebie for you
to use in your art projects, if you so desire. If you create anything using this
paper, I would love to see it.


The large fern was stamped with gesso and let to dry. This creates a resist effect when painted over with acrylics. A darker shade acrylic paint was used to stamp the smaller fern and little square element.


I will most likely use this paper as cover paper for one of my handbound books that I am in the process of binding right now.
The first two freebie papers can be found by clicking on the label...."Freebies" on the sidebar.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

What a nice freebie to give away :) I've never thought of giving anything away on my blog, not sure anyone would want anything I have on offer :D I might ask and find out, and maybe give one of my illustrations away, they're piling up now, I'm going to run of of room to store them soon anyway :)

Cynnie, you are SO generous with your time and your talent. I really love this paper, and you made it look doable. I scrolled down to see some previous posts and realized I had missed SO much, including your mini tutorial on making watercolor leaves. Now I have made them using acrylics, but never watercolors. Stunning result, too. I really MUST try this!
