And…Day number three for posting consecutively! Woohoo! The kids aren’t even back in school yet, but I’ve been so busy in Tim Holtz’ Creative Chemistry 103 that I can’t stop working in the craft room. Once again I’m sharing distress crayons with texture paste and stencils.
I began this card by applying two individual layers of opaque matte texture paste over three different stencils. First I used bubbles(?) with stripes, and allowed this to dry. Then I layered the numbers stencil over the dried stripes, and waited for this to dry as well. The next step was to paint the entire panel in a thin coat of collage medium, and waited for this to dry. Next I worked in small areas coloring with the crayons and blending with the crayons for a grungy effect. I kept working more crayon into all of the nooks and grooves of the texture paste, and lightly added color to the white left side. Finally I wiped the excess away with a dry paper towel, then sprinkled water, and dabbed away the excess. Seriously grungy on this one; I think I channeled Tim for this!
There it is. My third card with distress crayons and texture paste. Do you like this one? I will be playing with alcohol inks for a few days, and then will be back with that homework to share.
Thanks for visiting again! Love and artsy hugs!
