Acrylic paint resist

 

 

I decided to add a description of how I've made this for all my followers who keep asking to add some description.  A note on this, I'd rather use the time I have, to create, rather than write blog posts, but I am so grateful for all the comments I get, and for you following me, so THANKS!

On a yahoo group we have to show our favorite resist technique - I think
it must be the acrylic-paint-resist-in-combination-with-heat-embossing technique! It's been used on this card to create the background! The background started off being a very colorful (BRIGHT) crapbookpaper! The text was heat embossed with clear embossing powder, then painted over with water-diluted white acrylic paint. When dry I ironed the embossing off. The picture is from an old diary. I thought it matched the background so beautifully, so I decided to use this picture instead of making a stamped picture, which would most certainly disappear on the background.

I am also entering this in the challenge on
1. Happy Daze Design -  'To brighten up the month'. Are these colors bright enough? Makes me long for spring!

  2. I always come to have a look at your art work, Ellie as it is just stunning. And I always wonder how you've created it as your style is so unique so thank you for giving us a description, it is so much appreciated although I know what you mean about preferring spending time creating than writing blogs.
