Hey again friends, Happy Monday!
So Clear Scraps & Imagine Crafts has paired up this week and I have
a cool technique I created while I was playing.
I used irRESISTible sprays and a blow dryer to create a cracked wood grain effect.
I created this Build It Your Way Binder (wait until I share the pages inside)
and wanted to cover the fence in texture, then I began playing with the
irRESISTible spray in COPPER and BRONZE and I coated the binder spine
with them mixing the colors, I thought it kind of reminded me of wood
So I saturated it- I should meant ion I taped off the acrylic first.
After saturating it, I left it 20 minutes to get a little bit of a crust on it,
then I took a blow dryer and heated it for about 10 minutes which gave it
a cool crackled wood affect.
It looks like aged wood really well in person too.
get to it with the blow dryer quick enough to make it wooden (I wish I had),
so I dried it then I inked it using StazOn inks in Emerald City and Cactus Green.
I wrapped flowers and stems around the fence adhering it onto the
album cover, after adding the laces.
These Imagine Crafts products are so amazing even if you are not a mixed media
guru (I am definitely NOT) it's for the every day crafter too just for amazing
ideas and new techniques!
TRY the blow dryer!!!!! :)
