Patchwork Panel...

... another sample from the recent JOFY releases.

Creating paper patchwork panels can be a little bit addictive - cutting out random sized rectangles and squares, gluing them down, & adding journaling, stamping or stencils over the top... 

This is the blue tone panel I created using a 12x12 page as a base, and then cut it into smaller pieces - for this project it was a 6x6inch panel.


I used Buff -  one of the new JOFY Limited Edition Fresco Finish paints - to white was over the top - wiping so some of the patterned panels can almost be seen.  I also added a layer of Chalk in the same way.



I stenciled onto the panel using one of my new stencils - LOVE this design that was on one of my stencils last year and I had planned for it to be an arrangement of 3.  I stenciled in Slate - very happy that this is now in the main colour groups of the Fresco colours (as is Chalk! yay)


I cleaned the stencil, flipped it over and stenciled the design in Pearl Glaze - I like how this gives an iridescent translusent effect - sometimes you see it sometimes you don't - as shown in the photo above where the image disappears towards the bottom of the stem.


Here is the panel - mounted onto chipboard painted with Mermaid and State.
