It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Try to Resist. We are using Ranger products, we would love it if you have Ranger product, you'll use them for this challenge, if you don't have any, it's okay too! Let's try to resist!
There are so many resist techniques, you have products that have resistance areas, like Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp. But you can also create your own resist. With embossing powder, or in my case Transparent Texture Paste. The Gloss version works best because it's smoother. I started with the Honeycomb stencil to create a resist for my background.
After the texture paste was completely dry I sprayed with Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Spray Stain and added some water so that it began to drip. You see how the transparent texture resist the spray. Although some of the spray seeped underneath the paste, but I like that cool effect. The paper I used really soaks up the ink. With a baby wipe, I wiped the ink off the texture paste. I added another layer, this time with Black Soot and Number Jumble stencil and with a baby wiped off the ink from the texture paste.
Last weekend I did a workshop, that was a gift for my birthday, about carving your own stamps. I made simple designs I could use and didn't already had. They make their debut on this art journal spread, and they will be used on much more projects in the future, for sure!
You can see the whole process of the making of this art journal spread in the video below.
