NEW from PaperArtsy {Zinski Art - Part 2} February 2017

Evening all. It's been a while hasn't it. Behind the scenes we've been racing to get ready for all sorts of exciting events coming up in the PaperArtsy calendar.

New releases are always one of the most exciting things for me, and what a week it's been hasn't it.

You'll be pleased to know it's not quite over just yet....

Drum roll please...........

It's time for another release from the amazing Elena Guzinska (ElenaZinski Art) for PaperArtsy and we've had an absolute ball making samples to introduce you to Elena's amazing fun filled world of FABULOUS.

Here, without further ado, is the video from Leandra to explain a bit about it

It's been an honour and a privilege to be part of Elena's team for this release. She is at least twice as much fun as her designs and we've had the deliciously wicked Wendy Mallas along for the ride too. Believe me when I say we have laughed and LAUGHED behind the scenes. Poor Leandra has had quite a job to keep us all under control (snigger!)

I found it very difficult to stop when it came to making my samples for this release. The designs really to lend themselves to so many different styles and genres AND they team beautifully with all the lovely Zinski Monsters from last year's release. They are just fun, fun, FUN, and I love that about them.  To paraphrase a well known children's story by AA Milne "You can't be un-cheered by these wonderful stamps". They are just a joy.

Here are my samples. I hope you like them. On the whole I've wanted to pull the characters off the page and I used a lot of paper puffing and PaperArtsy Gloss Glaze to achieve that effect along with some Grunge Paste, Fresco Paint and good old fashioned Love....

Fussy Cutting Fiesta

I do love a bit of fiddly fussy cutting and I do LOVE a bit of repeat stamping. This gorgeous flower is such a good strong design that it stands up beautifully to the bold repeat stamped background using a sentiment from the January release (ZA08). Added to that, there is a wealth of opportunity for layering it up to add dimension.  I love it!

You will have seen on the video that I also broke out my long suffering sewing machine to make some little Zinski softees and a cushion. There WILL be more, when I have a bit more time....
