The experiment on this page is: YES, using a product that's been in my stash for a while.... FAB FOIL!
IT'S MAGIC!! No reason for not using it.... you must give it a try!
Look at the shimmer!
Some notes on how I did this:
Backgroound is done with scribbling of Caran d' Arche Neocolor II crayons, and then painting it with gesso.
The toadstools (Stampotique) and the ants (own design) and the insects were heat embossed with black.
The script (Stampers Anonymus) part: Bonding powder also gets done with versamark and the heat tool: after heating it with your heat gun, just as with embossing powder.... let it cool. Now this is different from embossing powder ; put the foil over the bonding powder, rub over it with a finger nail, and where the bonding powder is, the foil will stick,
SO, I will be using this product much more in future!!
This Art Journal page is for Journal52 week 40 - Experimental!
I SO love how this turned out. And it's so easy to make!
I"ll tell you how!
1. Take a piece of 18 x 18 cm cardstock and paint gesso generously onto it. While still wet, adhere pieces of newspaper to it, by just putting it partly in the gesso, rubbing it only in the centre parts. Leave to dry. Tear the parts that are not adhered to the background, off.
2. Add some structure to the background with a stencil and structure paste.
3. Add a layer of gesso over the page, so the pieces of newspaper are faded.
4. Sponge the background with Distress ink, spray with water to let it run. Leave to dry.
5. Stamp the flower with a solvent ink on a stirdy piece of newspaper paper, cut it out, and adhere it to the background. Stamp it partly again, also on the newspaper paper, and cut the flowers out that are the highest part of the flower. Color it all. I used watercolorpencils, watercolor and a Molotow marker for the outlines (green). Adhere the top little 3 flowers to the page with 3D glue. Leave to dry.
6. Stamp the scrabble letters onto the newspaper paper, and cut them out. Find yourself some letters from the newspaper that will form the word PAPER in colors coordinating with the rest of the colors. Adhere them to the page.
