A new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge makes its debut. This week we ask you to combine stamps with mists. The theme is: "Stamp + Mist".
Experimenting is something I like to do in my art journal. That has a greater surface area than a card or a tag and I've got more space. I didn't gesso the surface. But I've used the Jumbled Letters with texture paste to create some texture. I also applied Liquid Frisket drops with a brush (Warning: This stuff smells very bad, so make sure you've got a window open. Although the odor won't last long). Liquid Frisket is a liquid mask. After your finished with your project, you can rub it off or leave it as transparent dimensional drops. The Liquid Frisket can stain a little bit of the ink that's applied on top of it.
This time I wanted to try a technique with pigment powder (Primary Elements from Luminarte). I picked the pigment powder with a brush and tap with my finger on the brush to spread the powder across the page. With the mister I activated the colors and what a cool effect! This way, you have the effect of a spray, but much more subtle than if you sprayed with a colored mist.
The Primary Elements doesn't have any binder to hold the mica. If you make it into a spray, you can use Gum Arabic as a binder. But for this technique hairspray is the answer.
To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
