Caroline here today to share a fun new technique with Magical shakers! I love discovering new ways to use the Lindy’s Magical Shakers and I think you will all like this idea! I’ve made my custom background using them and a big stamp I had in my stash. The result is impressive! The stamping is not detailed as it would be from using an ink pad of course but it’s eye-catching!
If you are not good at hand drawing or watercolor painting you’ll love this technique!
On my 4×6 acrylic block, I’ve sprinkled a bit of powder from my shakers. I mixed the 2 colors together.
With a spray of clean water, I activated the pigments just a bit.
I completed the blending with a wet brush were the pigments were too heavy to have been dissolved by the spray.
I put my stamp on top of my pigment and I pressed well everywhere to have ink on it.
I stamped over my white paper and here and there I came back with a brush to create some drips and to add watercolor effect around my pattern.
Here’s the result once dry with the gorgeous shimmer all over. All I had to do is to complete my scrapbook layout then!
Here are some close ups of my layout.
Thanks for stopping by and see you next month for another fun tutorial!
