Fragile Papers For Paper Artsy

The challenge this fortnight at PaperArtsy is to use fragile papers - well we all have lots of paper don't we, so this is mine.

I started with an 8x8 piece of grayboard, and put some Grunge paste through various Paper Artsy stencils. I then sloshed on some Fresco Paints.
Added some stamping from various sets
The flowers are made with old book pages, and tissue paper that's been painted in Fresco's.
The GP stenciling has been rubbed over with Treasure Gold, and I've edged it all with TH tissue tape.
This was a real fun challenge, it took ages to make but that's cos I was enjoying myself, and I'm sticking to my resolution of only making what I enjoy. I go to work to pay the bills (mainly crafting ones) and I just craft for fun
I'm also entering it into the challenge at The Mirror Crack'd which is to use stencils, and the Craft Stamper  Take a Stamp challenge.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x
