Faux Embossing – Using Baby Wipes

When it comes to mixed media – really anything goes.

But how many of you have used baby wipes on your pages.

In the video below Baby Wipes when used through the stencil design, not only can help you blend colours together but it also REMOVES a layer of the paint, giving you a faux embossed feel.

When it comes to mixed media here are really no rules and almost anything goes – you just need to play and experiment.

Watch the video below to see how I have made the above page. 
Add a photo to it if you want to use as a scrapbook page or cut down and use in a art journal.  Better still you could do the same technique direct into a journal.  


 

”Thankful” Layout and Tutorial by Rikki G

Good morning how are you? Rikki here to share with you a little tutorial and layout using the amazing Kaisercraft Blessed Collection – IN STORE NOW !!! And I will be featuring the amazing Gold Foil Specialty sheet.

Now dont forget you can now download all the step by step instructions HERE.

KAISERCRAFT : BLESSED Collection: PS552 Bouquet – Gold Foil, P2675 Have Faith, CT952 Collectables

KC PRODUCTS: KM121 White, KM122 Yellow, KM124 Red, KM125 Candy, KM126 Lime, KM127 Turquoise, KM132 Shimmer Gold, T303 Foam Tape, T321 Glue.

Step 1: 

Mist some water on the flower you are wanting to paint….. Then with a brush drop and build up the KAISER MIST – CANDY and allow to dry, before starting the next step.

Step 2: 

Repeat above step this time with KAISER MIST – TURQUOISE – remember to allow to dry before going onto the next step.

Step 3:

Repeating above steps with the KAISER MIST – YELLOW. Now once that is dry build up your colours if you want them more intense.

With the leaves – KAISER MIST – LIME …. wet over the leaves and allow to ”bleed” out and go beyond the gold foil.

Repeat this step with all the colours and let them blend beyond the gold foil……. and dont forget to splatter more intense colours.

Add KAISER MIST-  SHIMMER  GOLD to highlight areas this is a shimmer so it has no pigment in it so plunge your brush to the bottom of the bottle and go heavy with it – this will take a little bit to build up..

Dont worry if you cant understand theres is a video on our KAISERCRAFT  Youtube channel so you can follow along.

*** Tip: To stop your colours being ”mud” allow to dry in between, and dont be afraid to build the colour up to make sections intense.

Till next time have a creative day.
