New techniques

This week, coincidentally, my daughter and I tried something new in the craft area! I came home one day to find her wearing a beautiful tee-shirt she had just made, using my craft supplies!

She took a plain grey tee-shirt, cut up fringes at the bottom, and used my metal effect inks to colour in the DoCrafts Geomatric mocha stencil. I was amazed at how she managed to blend the colours AND not leave any stains around! I wish I had been there to see her do it.

As Simon Says Stamp is having a Kids Challenge, with “Glitter” as its theme, I thought this would be perfect to show off my daughter’s creation.

I hope you can see how the paint glitters on the tshirt.

I also entered her tshirt in:

The same week I too decided to try something new that I’ve wanted to use for awhile now. Acrylic paste!

I first mixed afew blobs of acrylic paste with red, orange, blue and green acrylic paints and spread it through the Bubble Danse stencil from Stamplorations. I cut out a panel using Simon Says Stamp stiched rectangle from the Bundle of Frames dies set and then added Tim Holtz’s “Celebrate” die cut from black paper, with glue. Some glue got on the front too, so I decided to add red glitter onto the sentiment! I adhered the panel to a black card stock and wrote “Its your Birthday” with my Sakura Gelly roll pens.

I really liked playing with the paste and will experiment more with it next week and maybe be more daring and mix different shapes this time!

I entered this card in:
