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.

Rubber Stamping on Burlap

February 4, 2015 in Mixed Media Posts

Today is my turn to post on the collective project- Cre8iveKlatch. I made a tag using burlap, and decided to experiment with some more ideas using that material. I really like the texture and look of it. Of course, the first thing I wanted to do was stamp on it! I used Golden’s Gel Medium/Molding Paste mixture and coated the burlap first. I experimented stamping with ink, but finally decided that stamping with paint was the way to go. Here’s the video of my experiment- Enjoy!

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!!
