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!
I’ve started with a white watercolor paper, a big stamp and Magical shakers Grab a guy gold and Alpine Ice rose from the January release.
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!
I used 2 tones of embossing powders on my frame over a thin coat of white gesso because the powders are translucent. I used Stardust Candy Rose and Desert moon copper teal.
Here are some close ups of my layout.
Thanks for stopping by and see you next month for another fun tutorial!
