Princess Green

I've been getting very painty...and very green! I made this..
Loads of green paint in various shades, specifically Paper Artsy frescos in Limelight, Guacamole and Hey Pesto. I also used some Pebeo Studio acrylic in iridescent green yellow, the sheen from this is fab...you can just about see here in the corner...
I stencilled using the darker Paper Artsy shade, hey pesto...
And did lots of stamping and printing as usual!
Bit of doodling there too! I grunged up the background slightly by adding a gentle brayering of black. Gives it a nice mucky look!
My image is this fabulous Octopode Factory fairy...
Quite unlike me, I coloured it a little! Green hair (Distress Stain and a waterbrush!), and I gave her black and white stripy tights. Of course, she has to stand on something rather than floating in mid air, so I added a little text paper ledge for her to rest on....
I found a phrase in my torn up book stash that I thought just fitted her perfectly...

As luck would have it (!!) the challenge over at the Octopode Factory Challenge blog this week is 'Green', so I'm playing along!
Hope your week is going great...bit chilly here in Blackpool but at least we have no snow!
love Trish xxxxx


  1. Green is my fav colour Trish, so you can just imagine how much I love this one!!!! The text quote is just so right too xx

  2. Hi Trish, loving all the green this has turned out fab! As I am only up the road from you in Preston I am too grateful to have escaped the snow, for now anyway lol

  3. Love all your greens and your originality and most of all I love that sentiment to go with the girl and the greens.

  4. Absolutely love the greens! I'm green with envy. :) So how does one do a gentle brayer ing with black no less? I may have to move to the UK so I can take some classes with you all o'er there! ;)

  5. Really loving your projects right now & this has to be a fave! The greens are amazing & sheen from yellowy paint, wow! This image is SO cool, I don't normally like character stamps but she is funky & just different?
    Had no idea Paper Arsty did paints, will have to search for them... Thank you once again!! Caroline :))

  6. I have found Octopode Etsy - not stamps at all. Sorry. The images are really different, a bit 'out there' which I like. Shame I only have a phone for all internet activity. Have added shop to favourites for when I have technology (could be a long wait, lol). Thank you for bringing them to my attention. Take care. Caroline :)

    1. Hi Caroline! lots of Octopode Factory images are rubber stamps too... Thats Crafty probably has the largest selection! T xxx

    2. Sorry Trish, didn't realise you'd replied (only came to pin link to this). That's brilliant, thank you, will check it out. Found the paints too, yay!! Can't buy till pay day, boo! Take care. Caroline :)


THANK YOU for taking the time to write me a message...it means a lot! xxxxx
