Sheena Douglass Paint Fusion

This week i have been playing with Sheena Douglass's Paint Fusion products, I got the paint brushes,dvd,mountboards,stamps and paint from Crafters Companion, where it is all available.
I am left handed and have never been able to paint, i always make a hole in the paper,I can colour using watercolour pencils or pens and a paint brush,but not with liquid paint! so I was soo pleased to have turned out two pictures, which are not too bad and felt i could share on my blog, because,if i can do it so can you!
I thoroughly enjoyed following the direction of Sheena on her dvd,whitty as ever! But i really didnt think i would be able to produce a piece of work which vaguely resembled anything like Sheena's!
I have plans to add these pictures to the front of a note book, on for addresses and one for recipes.
I finished the pictures by spraying them which Spray & Shine from Crafters Companion, if brings the flowers to life! And also gives a strong varnish effect,which would protect the pictures on a book!
The Raspberries were the first stamps i attempted and this picture is my second attempt and the Poppies were my 1st attempt at doing those!
I stamped the images onto Centura pearl card from Crafters Companion and distressed it with with cut & dry foam using Tim Holtz Distress ink, Vintage Photo and Black soot.

Sara of Crafters Companion is over in Germany for the German launch of Fairyopolis, i made samples from the Fairyopolis kit, using just what was in the kit and there was still loads left! lots of gems, rub ons and foam pads,which could be used on other cards!
This is using one of the cards, a piece of another card cut into a mat,co-ordinating flowers,gems and the beautiful decoupage fairy image and the rub on greeting.
So for any of my German followers, keep an eye out for some more inspiration using the kits.
