Hi Perfect Paint Fans....
Lynne Forsythe here!!


I was talking with Cheryl Mezzetti upon her 

return from the Scrapbook Expo in Grapvine, TX.
She was ECSTATIC about the response of

(I'm not surprised!!!)

She spent the weekend sharing the AMAZINGNESS 
of her products and my post today 
is about a "challenge" she gave me.


#1.....mix Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylics

with Polishing Plaster


#2.....mix Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylics 

together to create another Shimmering Matte Acrylic color


I had already begun a canvas and had been unsure
at that point, where I was going with it....
I now knew...
I had a "challenge"!!!


[I apologize, there are very few step out photos,
this was truly a creative endeavor,
one to get lost in....and I did!]


I began with a 14" x 18" canvas,
and cut (3) hearts from various vintage papers
and adhered them to the canvas.
I pulled out several The Crafter's Workshop stencils
and applied various Perfect Paints Texture mediums through them....


Organic Matter Mask ~ Perfect Clear Texture Gel
Netting ~ White Stucco

Raven Mosaic ~ Cayenne ~ Polishing Plaster
when dry I painted on a layer of 
Perfect Glaze Medium
over the entire canvas. response to challenge #1


mix Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylics

with Polishing Plaster


I stepped right out of my color box on this one...

Shimmering Matte Acrylics
Ballet Slipper and
my new LOVE ~ Vintage Mercury
which I folded into
Organic Sugar ~ Polishing Plaster


I masked off my hearts 
with the original heart patterns

and lathered on the concoction!


Now came my answer to challenge #2


mix Perfect Paints Shimmering Matte Acrylics 

together to create another color.


My color choices?......

Coral and Aged Copper


I added a bit of 

Perfect Glaze Medium to help with reduce the opacity as

I wanted to see the music in my large 
"Paper Heart".


Each heart was "colored" differently.
Did I say.....
I LOVE Vintage Mercury??



Each time, using the leftover "color" on the 
background of my canvas.


Suddenly, I was stuck.... 
I had no idea how to finish the canvas! 
Until I received a box from 
Canvas Corp Brands with
their new Mixed Media Origins Collection
ahhhh.....there it was
a pair of wings on the Grace paper.





I wanted to share with you 
 a few more close ups of my canvas....



There are sooo many layers to this project
I can't even begin to tell you about them....
adhering string

painting tatting
coiled wire
big brush pens
vintage sign letters
and do overs!


.....all to achieve the finished project....
