Sneaky Peek!

A sneaky peek at the first panel of my granddaughters dolls house. I am converting it into a craft storage box.

I have used Tsukineko StazOn inks, Brilliance inks, GlazOn and GooseBumps!

Hope to have the whole finished project Online next week with better pictures!

Using what I've got!

You just know things are desperate when you have to start creating with PVA! So, I painted with it and mixed Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Brilliance Inks in with sea salt, blasted it with fireworks and finished with StazOn Jet Black ha!

Experiment part 2

Continuing on from the experiment below and I dragged moulding paste through a stencil with a steak knife (don't ask!) and finished it by dragging a Timber Brown, Pumpkin and Jet Black StazOn pad across the surface. I am quite pleased with it and will use it as a page in my journal

Always keen to experiment!

I began with a blank sheet of white card and spritzed it with GooseBumps, I
then rubbed it over with a Cactus Green StazOn ink pad, I spritzed again and built up the following layers with StazOn Blazing Red, Olive Green and Jet Black. Heating to set between each layer.

It has a wonderful texture and sheen. A cross between leather and snakeskin 

Excited and honoured to be...

Happy Experiment - Distress Paint Technique

Apply a splodge of Antiqued Bronze and Tarnished Brass Distress Paint to your craft sheet.

Mist with water and drag your tag through it. 

Now mist your tag with water and let the paint run where you want it to.

Dry it with a craft heat gun.

Take Vintage Photo Distress Ink and blend it all over your tag with a blending tool.

Mist the tag all over with a fine mist of water and gently pat with kitchen towel. The tag should just feel slightly damp.

Now go over it with more Vintage Photo Distress Ink using your blending tool and you will notice that some areas of the Distress Paint act as a resist while other areas absorb the ink.

I really like the effect :)
