Rusted and Embossed Paper- for real

October 15, 2015 in Mixed Media Posts, Video Posts

Last week I showed you how I make faux rust, but this week I am using real rust to make some cool embossed paper. The secret? Old, decrepit, rusted ceiling tiles. The paper came out so cool! If you liked this paper, you might need to start haunting your favorite antique stores :) .

Here’s how I made the rusted, embossed paper:

 

and here’s some pictures of finished papers:

Faux Rust

Hi all! It has been a while since I have posted here! It’s been a busy summer!! I decided to get back into the blogging spirit with my take on making rusted paper. The catch? It is fake ;).

Here’s a picture of the faux rust background…

And here is the video on how I did it.

I decided to use my own embossing plate (more on how I do that in a future video!) to make an embossed metal card for Valentine’s day. Here is the video…

and here is how it turned out!

Micaceous Iron Oxide Stenciling

December 31, 2014 in Mixed Media Posts, Video Posts

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!!

Rusted Paper Card

August 29, 2014 in Mixed Media Posts

In honor of my parents 55th Wedding Anniversary, I decided to make them a card that had an aged feel to it. I was happy with the way it turned out, so I am making a short video that I will use in a collaborative teaching project I am in the process of building with some very creative friends of mine. In the meantime, enjoy the card…
