Playing with Nuance...

I decided to use some paper with a gorgeous texture
and experiment on them with water and/or gesso.

By playing I have a lot of backgrounds now, to be used in future projects.


LOVE the vibrancy of the Nuance powders. By adding water before or after squirting the powders onto the paper, you get different effects.
Also, when applying gesso onto the card stock, will also affect the end result.
And of course the type of paper will also affect it.

This is the watercolor paper I've used. Deep puddles, the gesso will fill it. 
It's a soft paper, so the water does tend to soak into the card. That was also the reason I decided to experiment with using gesso on some backgrounds. 


 Dry paper, and mist with water to make the colors blend.


Wet paper, and then add the powders, and mist with water again to make colors blend.  


Scrape gesso onto cardstock, and while wet add the Nuance powders, and mist with water to make the colors blend.  
PS: the gesso will make puddle in the  structure of the paper. 


Scrape gesso onto the cardstock, leave to dry. Stamp the background soap bubbles stamp. Add the Nuance powders, and mist with water to make the colors blend. Also - while wet - add some extra colors to the circles, to make some new colors as it all blends while wet.


Heat emboss the background soap bubbles stamp with white embossing powder. Add the Nuance powders, and mist with water to make the colors blend. Also - while wet - add some extra colors to the circles, to make some new colors as it all blends while wet.

I am entering this one in the challenge on Paper Artsy - resists.

The end result - beautiful background paper!



LOVE the new soap bubbles stamp!

I will do more experimenting on glossy paper,
and maybe on some other types of paper, maybe kraft, too?!

See you next time! Happy crafting...
