Saturday's Workout - Texture Paint
This was a process today! On Saturday's Workout the challenge was texture with paint. There was a link to a tutorial that described this technique, however for some strange reason, I could not get the tutorial; so I decided to look at Sandy's example and go from there on my own. Of course later when I could see the tutorial - I guess my computer was just resting? - I have done nothing even close to it. I used a piece of cardboard, smeared some gel medium on it, wrote on it, pushed some stamps into and let it dry - sort of, I was very impatient today. Then I took distress inks and smeared them over the images, added some watercolour crayon and some metallic rubons - see what I'm saying, nothing like the instructions. I wasn't happy with the effect but decided to leave it and try printing it smaller than original. Now, you may be able to tell that my printer is running out of a few colours so the bright blue green piece is what I ended up with next. I took this and stamped way too much onto it and sponged on some distress ink to tone it down a bit. Still not happy with the effect I cut an ATC piece from it, glued on this image and Voila - One Night in Paris. Whew! TFL. Hope all your processes are not as complicated as this. Cheers!
