Today I am sharing with you layout I’ve created with Lindy’s Magicals, Starbursts and embossing powder. I love working with Lindy’s products, there are so many ways to use them and I am still learning new ones 🙂 Today I used them as sprays, as watercolors, with brushes, and also rubbed Magical powders onto a cast (resin) surface to add color.
Firstly I covered the paper with a thin layer of Soft Gloss Gel to avoid it from warping. After drying I added a thick layer of Clear Crackle Texture Paste on the part of the paper I will be working on, and let it dry overnight. That step is very important to get the big cracks going as heat drying will make them much smaller. Next step was sewing the edges and 1/3 of the middle part of the paper with a sewing machine. I love uneven edges and hanging threads:) Then I added some texture with modeling paste and a triangle stencil.
And the fun part begins:) I diluted with water fallowing Magicals: Ocean Breeze Blue, Caribbean Blue and Tibetan Poppy Teal. I dried the colors after each application and then added some more until I was satisfied with the result. I sprayed Afternoon Delight Denim towards the edges of my “focal triangle”, added some water and tilted the paper to let the paint run freely. After drying I used a brush to add Screamin’ Banshee Black– this Starbursts spray has gorgeous blue shimmer in it and I think it complements beautifully the colors palette that I’ve chosen. I also added some splatter with this spray and after drying, some more splatter with diluted Flat Magical- Sidewalk Chalk.
I colored the triangles chipboard with Afternoon Delight Denim and Ocean Breeze Blue with the help of a brush. Really simple technique and the effect is beautiful!
Then I added some stamping (Viva Las Vegas and Creative Embellishments stamps) and some embossing. To emboss small triangles I used Lindy’s Gang Purely White Embossing Powder.
I rubbed on with my finger Caribbean Blue powder onto the cast I made -it gave it a beautiful, uneven coverage and a gorgeous color!
To finish, I added some embellishments with the help of 3D medium gel: microbeads, torn book pages and a piece of gauze colored with Screamin’ Banshee Black. And here is my finished project.
Here are few close-ups:
