Without further ado..

Here is the tutorial..( Picture heavy post ;))
step1

2.jpg

 

I took 8 by 8 inches framed canvas, Mod podge , kitchen towel (coz I like its dotted pattern ) and a paint brush. I tore the tissue paper and glued it over the canvas as shown with the help of Mod podge and let it air dry.

step2

3.jpg
Once the canvas was dried,
I applied a layer of Gesso over it to prepare the base for coloring.
step3
4.jpg

After that I stenciled the canvas with texture paste using Craftyscrappers  Rose Bunch Stencil and  let it air dry. You can use your heat tool to fasten the process.
step4
5.jpg
Now I sprayed  Craftscrappers “Grape Juice ” shimmer spray  along with water spray over the canvas till I was satisfied. 
step5
6.jpg

Then, I applied Gold Acrylic paint  to add some interest .
step6
7.jpg
 Once satisfied with my coloring, I arranged all my embellishment roughly on the canvas as shown. I have used some chipboards (colored these with gold acrylic color) , flowers, Butterfly die cut outs ( which I heat embossed with white embossing powder), metal charm, glitter balls etc to decorate it. I glued all my embellishment over the canvas with glue gun. 
step7
1.jpg
Then I  added the stamped sentiment… and if you are wondering what is this “Diddle” then let me tell you its my friend’s sister nick name for whom he asked me to make this canvas.
step8
Lastly, I covered the whole canvas with mod podge and let it dry overnight.

FUN WITH SHIMMER PASTES N ACETATE:A layered card.

Hello Friends,
 
This is Priyanka over the blog today,
and I am going to share a tutorial on a fun layered card
with the twist of using acetate & shimmer pastes along!

FG

Here’s a look at the completed layered card:

1
 
 
The best part is it is really easy to make and yet unique in its design,

Possible image 1

So so let’s start with the process of making it….
(* picture heavy post!)

step1
 
Take a piece of acetate and select the shades of shimmer pastes to be used,
here I picked two shades “Dreams” & Envy”  from Craftyscrappers to get two different shades.
step2
Then using the   French Script stencil”  , took sufficient amount of shimmer paste and applied the shimmer pastes to the acetate sheet.
 
Next I picked an orange card from the cards set again from the store,
these have bright shades to choose from and are thick enough to handle layers and other mediums.

 
3
 
Isn’t it looking pretty? I loved the outcome on acetate.
step3
I decided to make a window on the card to fit the acetate sheet, so cut out a rectangular piece out of the card

4

 
Added the acetate to the cut out using both sided tape from the back side. 
 
step4
Next sprayed Shimmer Spray –Sweet Sunshine”  on a piece of pattern paper.
I must say these sprays are so perfect, they spread beautifully and just little is needed to spray; they give nice intense color.

Shimmer Spray –“Sweet Sunshine”

step5
 
Mounted this to a brown cardstock and tied a twine to it.
Added this tag to my card.

step6
Stamped a cute Hog image using the stamp set “Hogs and Kisses” and
colored it using faber castell connector pens.

ST-ANL-13(HOGS N KISSES)_768x768
HOGS N KISSES
IMG_20170924_241825548
Added this image to a piece of brown card-stock using double sided foam tape. 
step7
Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and added this to the card.

Lastly added few rhinestones and drew black stitched lines around the window, using black gel pen.

So lets begin with the tutorial…

step3

Apply the shimmer paste, evenly all over the cardstock and once done,
pick the extra and keep it in the bottle.
(That way there is less wastage.)

step4

Remove the Stencil slowly n allow it to dry.
You can  air dry it or you can use a heat tool to dry it.
I prefer air dry method for this effect.
(this is how it will look…)

step5
Then I took a piece of Orange Cardstock measuring 4.5″×11″inches in size.
and folded it in half scoring at 5.5″ on 11″ side.
I adhered a matching ribbon and pearls on the embossed panel
and using red tacky tape I adhered it to the Orange Cardstock.

step6

I stamped a thank you sentiment using my Archival ink and completed the card.

I’ve also used lilac shimmer paste to make another variant for the card.

The texture and effect of the shimmer paste is just awesome
