today I'm sharing a video that was filmed last month at CHA, 
by my friends from Scrap Time...

it's a fun new technique that I call 
faux gilding...

it's another way to use embossing pastes...

I was inspired when I saw a beautiful, but...
REALLY EXPENSIVE 
vintage picture frame at an antique shop...

these are the supplies you'll need...



the one in the lower right corner...

you'll see in the video 
that I use it unmounted...




and grab your chosen surface...


here's a peek at the technique result...

keep in mind that this technique will work on multiple surfaces...
I like it best on my art parts
because they are kraft colored to start with...
it also looks cool on kraft tags and
 it's a really fun technique 
to use on bare wood...

***think inexpensive frames...***
they make a great gift!


THANKS to CHRISTINE & MARK 
for another GREAT professional video!


after you watch the video...
 I hope you'll be inspired to try the technique

and...

make art!
