Wanted to know

Lisa, from Wild Soul Arts dot ning asked how I made the background for a Rumi Quote. So I told her and then thought ‘hey I bet others may want to know.’

For this post I started with: 1 sheet printer paper, Royal Fuchsia wash (paint, water & matte medium), Yellow, very pale light Green, White Pigment Ink, White Embossing power, soft paint brush, make up sponge/ wedge, a rubber texture thing for putting texture on clay / fimo, a 12 x 12 inch paper stencil, a 6 x 6 inch plastic stencil – and don’t forget to let all layers dry between and the Heat Gun grand finale.

Painted the white paper with the wash, first in one direction then the other (kinda linen looking)

Using a makeup wedge Stenciled on the yellow

A clean makeup wedge - Stenciled on the pale green

Stamped white ink with the rubber texture thing over half the page, then added the embossing powder while the ink was still wet, then stamped the other half and again sprinkled the embossing powder. Tapping the paper off & returning the un-stuck powder back into the bottle. 

Finally used the Heat Gun to melt & set it.  Yummm pretty

Happy Art’ing Y’all

Thanks Y'all.

Gina, I've had it for a few years, but most likely on the fimo / clay aisle at Hobby Lobby OR Michael's.
