Oh what fun we had making this creative mess! My friend Jackie came for a few days and on the way over picked up my order from Capture the Magic at Soham of PaperArtsy Fresco paints, so armed with about 20 new colours we set off on our painting extravaganzer...........

We had a go at some new techniques,  "bumping" was one of them, we tried and tried but could not seem to get the look we were after, until,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Yes, you guessed it, I cleaned my mask on scrap paper with a baby wipe and lo and behold "BUMPING"!!
Overall I had great fun and recommend it. But watch out if you get the bug it's all consuming and cards/scrapbooking go by the wayside.



  1. Looks great, love the effects x

  8. That is a new idea to me. I have never heard of Bumping, unless it it the technique used be Parisians to bump cars closer together to create a parking space. I look forward to seeing more of it from you. Have a great week. xx Maggie #42
