Scrap FX technique share

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today.

Today I'd like to share with you a little post from the Scrap FX blog... we did this great post where the DT members shared different techniques with chipboard and stencils .... here is my share, it was written up by the fabulous Scarlett...

Cindy shares an awesome technique using PVA glue, chipboard, and your heatgun for fast and fabulous results that pack a wow factor you won’t believe.

To achieve this rockin’ fab look Cindy did the following:

Step One: Spread gel medium or PVA type glue on chipboard then heat with heat gun to cause it to bubble giving it texture.

Step Two: Paint with black gesso and allow to dry.

Step Three: Use Inka Gold in a few colors to run onto the texture to complete the technique. You could use a copper spray mist (like Lindy’s Stamp Gang instead).

Cindy also used this same finishing technique on her stencil work and modeling paste for her project. Check it out:

Is that cool or what?? When I saw this my mind was blown! I was so elated she shared her technique because this metallic effect is so realistic – I love it and will admit I really want to touch it!

Now to see her full reveal:

This page is nothing short of jaw dropping. The rustic feel Cindy has captured and created here is magnificent! The way the stenciling comes busting through the page and the paper blends and merges makes it look like an optical illusion of sorts. Again another fairly easy technique with outcome that makes it look like you worked your tail feathers off to get the end result – don’t you love that?

Doesn't Scarlett do a fantastic job at writing up these posts... I love how she brings the projects alive with her words... Anyway, if you'd like to see the rest of the techniques shared by the DT follow the link HERE.... there are some great ideas shared there....

till next time
