A World of Fantasy

A friend of mine recently introduced me to Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics, I fell in love with the texture of the paints, felt soft like a chalk finish, but did not come off on your hands.  Lots of ways you can use them, so I bought some and started experimenting.

These pages started out purely as an experiment in using the paints, then I added more and more and more elements, there is a lots of rubber stamping going on, my drawings, diecuts and an image from Di' Digis complete the pages.

Top things I love is that they do not bleed through the paper (my book is just a sketch book, so nothing special about the paper).  I love how my white pen went on white and stayed on.  The translucent paints are fabulous for colouring stamps.  And the most amazing colours, definitely adding more on my next shopping list.

I got some chalk paints, but they didn't look as good as yours do. Mine are more vintage, and don't have the variety of colors, either. Yours look wonderful, and it's good that yours don't get on your hands like mine do.

I am super impressed with this journal spread, Cass. It looks like sheer fantasy to me. I love everything about it. Thanks for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey.
