Hi everyone, today I have a a project and a tutorial
to share with you using the fabulous
Have you bought one of these for yourself yet??
What are you waiting on? They are awesome!
Here is a look at my layout
Everything here is from the kit, except for the cardstock.
I like to add fun texture to my background papers and a great
way to do that without adding a lot of bulk to your page is to use paint.
I mixed the cream and blue paint in the kit on my craft mat.
Now, this can get a little messy. I cut a piece of the mesh, and stuck it in the paint.
Then I used the same craft stick I mixed the paint with to rub the mesh into the paint and
make sure that it was loaded. I am not too worried about getting all of it covered.
I use my tweezers to move the mesh to my paper, then I place
a piece of scrap paper on top of the mesh and press down. The scrap paper will
allow you to get a good transfer without
1. getting it all over your hands
2. smearing the paint all over the paper
Pick up the scrap paper, then pick up the mesh and repeat.
USE A NEW PIECE OF SCRAP PAPER FOR EACH IMPRESSION.
or you will get paint from previous transfers.
Here is what my background ended up looking like
Set aside to dry for just a few minutes and you are ready to go!
I inked some of the buttons from the kit, tied floss through them and
used them as a banner. All the other paper elements were fussy cut from
I absolutely adore this ribbon that was in the kit!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope that you
give this technique a try. It is messy, but fun!
