painted paste part 2...

ok…

on the previous post we left off with this unfinished art parts large creative cover…

it has white embossing paste, stamped into while wet, with a misted (with water) A to Z background stamp

it started like this...



I had no clue where this was going, so I assembled some of my favorite distress paint colors

when in doubt…grab broken china…you'll never go wrong!

after shaking the paints, I added some of each color to the craft sheet & used the blending tool with foam, to tap & blend the paints over the DRY embossing paste…



and now the base looked like this…

it took on a verdigris sort of effect, so I decided to go with that & not add more paint…
I added a bit of rusty hinge distress ink to the edges with the blending tool…



I wanted to add more rusty hinge, so I dripped rusty hinge stain & let it run down the left side…

I just made sure the dabber top was saturated, then swiped it on the art parts top left edge...

on the right, I used rusty hinge distress ink on the blending tool & misted that with water to create a much softer rusty stain…

since the distress paints are waterproof when dry, the paint below the wet stain was not affected...

now it looked like this...


I used my "polka dotty" stencil with watering can archival to add polka dots...



I decided later to add more dots toward the right…

then decided to add a frame with the Stabilo pencil…
it was easy to trace an art parts small creative cover...
 perfect size...

I used my finger to soften the pencil line…
and added a bit of watering can archival to the base edges…

and I also used tarnished brass distress stain along the outer edge of the base…

you'll see that in the later photos...


I used my black embossing paste with the "never enough hearts" stencil to create a small heart embellishment…

I found a scrap of clearly for art, that I had covered with a vintage dictionary page…(Glue N Seal is magic)...

after the paste dried, I cut it out...



to stencil this flower on another CFA scrap…

I used the wild honey distress marker for the flower center, then cut it out & heated it to shape it…

I used the tarnished brass stain to add a little subtle shine to the petal edges...




 to create some dimension on the small art parts residence, I used the black embossing paste thru the "yikes, stripes"stencil …

I used the New York red book stamp with jet black for the residence roof…it's a great graphics stamp…perfect for using just small sections...

the mini flower is stamped with my new reverse dots background, using orange blossom archival

same stamp, but fern green archival for the art parts leaves
and a little bit of brushed corduroy over them to tone down the art parts kraft color...

the mini black star is from Blossom Bucket...

the small art parts heart was first stamped with orange blossom archival, dried then lightly inked with brushed corduroy…

I used the small flourishes with jet black archival to accent the heart…

LOTS...



I inked the art parts banner with brushed corduroy & LIGHTLY stamped over it using watering can archival with the screen stamp 
it's from my very first stamp release…
an oldie…but I still love it!

I used jet black to stencil "ALWAYS"

you can see that watering can & jet black archival work well together!

the art parts "LOVE" got a quick painting with black soot distress paint...



a little film strip ribbon

a little ring fastener to accent the CFA flower center…

some black glaze pen dots around a portion of the pencil frame
just the right side...

assembled…it now looks like this…




                                        


here's a better look at the black embossing paste stripes on the house & the little heart embellishment…
the black embossing paste is nice & dark, so it really stands out...

I could have added the embossing paste heart directly over the dried painted paste background…the paste will stick to paint & dry paste…
but I wasn't sure where I wanted it…

so by making it a separate piece, I could test drive it over the house & on the right side, where it eventually landed...




I hope you're inspired to try this technique…

randomly apply some embossing paste...

change up the paint colors & background stamps & you have a million fun possibilities…

this piece also shows you how well the embossing pastes work with my favorite Ranger products…
distress inks, paints, stains, markers, archival inks &  alcohol inks too…

you can dust dry perfect pearls over the black paste or mist it with perfect pearls mists to add some shimmer…

tim's distress rock candy glitter sprinkled over wet white embossing paste makes AWESOME dimensional snow for holiday projects…

here's a tag I made last year…
and here's the link to the tutorial




below is a closer look at the rock candy distress glitter/embossing paste snow…

it's easy to add a bit of shading to the edges with distress inks…

can't wait to play with this again…



black embossing paste for his hat adds great texture…






for brighter bolder colors, you can use Dyan's spray inks with the embossing pastes too…
just spray over either wet or dry white or translucent embossing paste, for a totally different color palette!
