The month is nearly over and this is my Project #4 for Inspiration Journal, where the challenge theme is Everything Goes - you only have a day left to enter but there is a great prize on offer of $50 to spend in Inspiration Emporium's on-line shop.
I have a question for you first, have you seen Jenny (Buttons) videos on the British Craft Network TV yet? If not, you are missing some great tutorials, tips and techniques. My piece today, was inspired by a couple of Jenny's shows where she used a layered paper technique, dribbles and splats!
The card base is 6" x 6", I cut up strips of Tim Holtz paper (1" x 6"approx) from my stash, ripped the ends off and glued them down, overlapping in the left top corner as you can see below.
I added some Tissue Tape here and there and then painted over the whole piece with a light coat of Picket Fence Distress Paint. A few dribbles of Chipped Sapphire Re-inker were added along with some builder's scrim for texture.
Now for the fun bit! Using several colours of Distress Spray Stain, these were spritzed and dried in turn, over the whole card. Once dried fully I used a paint brush to add splats of paint all over - it is hard to know when to stop, it is such a fun thing to do - but make sure you cover the whole of your desk/work surface with paper and protect your clothing too!
To finish off I added some of Tim's Remnant Rubs for some added interest.
So, there you have it, my completed Jenny inspired card. Apologies for the long post but I wanted to do justice to Jenny's techniques and tips.
