TEACHING Tuesday - Sept 16/08

Good Tuesday everyone!

We have a VERY fun tutorial for you today from our Sister, Jayne! I love this idea and I'm sure you will too.

Puffy Paint Embellishments by Jayne Jones

Here is a one of the fun techniques I taught in a Feeling Scrappy class called “Paint the Town” It is a great way to add dimension and sparkle to your scrapbook pages.

1.) Gather your supplies:
Dimensional Paint (Scribbles is the brand I use)
Wax Paper
Something to Trace (stickers, chipboard, die-cuts, hand draw item, etc)
Glitter (optional)

2.) Put a piece of wax paper over the item you plan to trace. Here I used sticker letters. Give your paint a few hard shakes down to be sure the paint is at the tip then squeeze the paint on to your wax paper - applying slow even pressure as you trace your item. You want to put the paint on thick.

3.) If you would like to add some sparkle to your project, just shake a generous amount of glitter over your paint. You should do this right away while the paint is still wet. Shake off the excess glitter and return it to the jar.

4.) Let the paint items dry well. I let mine sit over night to be sure they are good and dry. Then just peel them off of your wax paper and there you have it – flexible, dimensional and sparkly accents for your page! I apply them to my page with glue or glue dots. Here are two examples of pages I did using this technique.

Thanks so much Jayne!!
