I have been promising my Mom this video for a while! Well, at least I made it before the New Year started 😉 .
In this video, I use Micaceous Iron Oxide paint with my own stencils in order to achieve a similar look to the tag that I posted over here in Cre8ive Klatch. In that post I used an embossing folder to add texture to the Micaceous Iron Oxide paint. However, I wanted to be able to use my own designs and achieve a similar look. Since I am not blessed with a manufacturing company that can make embossing folders from my designs 😉 , I decided to use a different process. This is a similar process to another card I a made not too long ago where I used Molding paste and a stencil. In this video, I used the modeling paste and Micaceous Iron Oxide paint. There are 2 techniques, but the one where I use the paint directly through a stencil is the quickest and easiest and it looks awesome. The other way is to paint the Micaceous Iron Oxide on top of a stenciled design made with the molding paste- good if you have one of those laying around. Either way works, and it is quick and easy!
These pictures hopefully give you a good view of what the painted, stenciled paper looks like after the process…
This is another “Take 5” project- it only takes 5 minutes- although you do need to account for drying time. Give it a shot- it’s super easy and looks fabulous! Enjoy!!
And I wish all of you a wonderful, Happy New Year in 2015!!
