This was my favourite class project from last month. Quick! Guess what the covers are made of?!!! Ans: Grungeboard! - Ok ok, its probably nothing new, but I got very excited about it while I was doing it. Here's a closer look at my favourite bits:
I used a full sheet of Tim Holtz grungeboard alphas, glued it on a Jenni Bowlin Bingo card, painted it, inked it, stamped on it, embossed on it and I was SUPER happy with the outcome.
So happy that I got lazy on the inside (haha!) and just repeated one idea on the inside. But its a fun idea you might like to try:
Masked & Spattered Embossing:
1. Place a Tim Holtz mask on cardstock.
2. Spray over mask with glimmer mist or Maya mist
3. Remove mask
4. Sprinkle on embossing powder (dont' just pour it on...you might get a blob and not a 'spatter')
5. Heat to dry
Its nice to get that 'not quite there' image instead of the usual very defined mask.
Hope your week is off to a good start! I'm a little disappointed that I can't teach class this Wednesday (have to go help set up the new PaperMarket Raffles City store)....but.....duty calls! See you all soon K?
