Over on the PaperArtsy blog this month the theme is mediums, i, like a lot of people i imagine, have lots of tubs of 'stuff' sitting on my craft desk that i don't really know what to do with! Well Leandra has kindly made a couple of You Tube videos demonstrating different ways to use them so i thought i would give it a go.

I started out by using various gels through a stencil onto waxed paper then spraying with Lindy's stamp gang sprays, these results varied quite a lot depending on the product used but the effect i got with 3D matt gel was my favourite, i used this piece to die cut the dragonfly out of as the colours reminded me of a dragonfly's wings.

I used one of the other sample pieces, which was clear gesso through a stencil and sprayed onto deli paper, as part of my background, tearing pieces off and sticking them down. i then dripped more sprays over the top and added some treasure gold to the raised areas. The sentiment id from hot pick 1507.

Hope you like it


  1. Oooh wow, I love it, you got some fab results, them Lindy's are obviously the secret to getting a fab shimmer, they seem to work the best with the gels and mediums from what I've seen.

    Love your dragonfly wings and your torn pieces blend into the page really well - nice one, you should blog more of your stuff then my blogger dashboard wouldn't go into meltdown at the shock!!!
