We sprayed with Tim Holtz Distress sprays and Dylusions Sprays and used Melt Art Bees Wax to collage the images. We finished with perfect pearl powders which adhere to the wax beautifully. Don’t forget to make sure you shade your images into your work by colouring around the edges. Because we have used wax you have to do this using archival ink or acrylic paint. Polishing the wax is the finishing touch.
The girls took these home to finish by adding other embellishments and words.
Effects like these are created by spraying your pages with water then a heavy coat of Distress Spray Stain Picket Fence or Dylusions White. Immediately followed by whatever colours you choose. Spray and walk away. Do not dry or touch it so the liquid tracks and blends itself.
Using Tim Holtz Distress Paint Dabbers create random Patterns on card.
We free hand drew flowers and shapes and stamped houses. Then fussy cut them out. This is a fun technique and you will be surprised how well they turn out. Dont forget to ink the edges and you can use glitter glues or insert gems to decorate. You will need a White Sharpie marker pen to highlight and a Dina Wakley Fude ball Pen for contrast.
This technique is an oldie but a goodie. Glue random embellishments to your card. Then paint with Viva Decor 3D Stamp Paint. Once dry use your mica sprays generously. While wet sprinkle with rock salt. Spray again thoroughly and leave to dry.
After you have brushed off the rock salt. This is the effect you will get.
These just need finishing off.
Use Black Card and the stencil of your choice. We have used Crafters Workshop Sunlit Forest. Apply Viva Decor Modelling Cream in any light colour and leave to dry. Use Tim Holtz Alcohol inks to colour where you have used the Modelling Cream. You do not have to be careful as the alcohol ink will not show on the black card behind. Use your Perfect Pearl Sprays to highlight your picture and the black card remembering to wipe it off the Modelling Cream.
All these samples are by Kathleen and Jenny who took the classes. Thanks for letting us use your work for this post.
