I’ve been feverishly trying to finish all of the techniques in time to post them to the class. Tonight is the deadline so I had to remind myself that I’m doing this for fun. LOL! These are the Techniques from Distress Collage Mediums and Textures. I did 4 of the 5. I will post the techniques I missed at some point but, hopefully, you’ll like these in the mean time. 😉
Paste Coloring – This one is exactly what it sounds like. The Texture Paste is colored with Iced Spruce Distress Paint, Evergreen Bough Distress Spray, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks and then, of course, Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Paste Embossing – This is really cool. I did a card size version but, after a week of creating, my Craft Room is such a disaster mess that I actually LOST it! Seriously! I know it’s there somewhere but I really cannot locate it! (see a snippet of my desk in the photo below.)
The Opaque Texture Paste is Gold Embossed and the Distress Inks used are: Iced Spruce and Stormy Sky Distress Sprays with Walnut Stain and Black Soot Distress Inks.
Paste Resist – How cool is this! The tile effect is so different! I’ve never seen this done before. It uses Transparent Gloss Texture Paste and a Stencil. The Designer Paper is Tim Holtz and the Distress Inks are White Picket Fence, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks.
Grit Grunge – This is another of my favorite techniques from this class. Grit Paste is used to create the texture. I colored it with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Crayons.
I’m working on a couple of cards using these techniques. I will post them as soon as they’re finished. 🙂
Who would have thought we’d be using SAND in our crafting!
haha – I’ve seen the craziest additions to people’s projects! It makes it difficult to throw anything away! LOL
