Background Sketchbook - Acrylic Resist

This is a fun technique that can be done with just about any big background image and a little acrylic paint.

It's always good to have a stash of birthday cards on hand.  These two cards were in my stash but they went out in the mail last week.
 Did the cut out card technique.  Here's another   cut out card I did.

Published in Summer 2015 RSM

I sent this into RubberStampMadness for the themes of as time goes by and black plus one color and it was accepted!  It's just a fun page I did with The Stampsmith I Love Lucy stamps for the focal point.  I've been learning that I can do big ..... if you know me I have always shrunk projects down and basically only did note cards but recently since I've taken a couple of classes with Dyan Reaveley I've discovered it can be o.k. to go BIG.

Background Sketchbook - Masking tape

Another oldie but goodie technique .... ordinary masking tape can look like old leather to a piece of old cloth.  add embossing powder for extra texture.

dylusion paints

I discovered that doing Dyan Reaveley's paint brayer technique can be very therapeutic! and right now I need that!   basically what you do is roll the brayer in the paint then slap it to the paper over and over and over.  Felt good to do that on several pages yesterday and I like the end results.  Oh, yes ..... and to add her quirky images....like it!  how about you?

small flowers

Here's another card I made with MFPStamps Small flowers stamp set and Celebrate mini stamp set.  this is what I call a cut out card because as you can see there is a strip cut out of the stamped background.  Another thing about the background is first I stamped with back side of the stamp then over stamped it with the flower design.  easy way to add color without coloring.

More TAGS!  More paint dauber circles, lots of washi tapes, stencils, texture paste, and even a couple of little tags on top of the bigger tag.  If you look close (click on pic to enlarge) you can see that this time I stamped the flowers on vellum then colored the back of them with markers, cut them out and adhered to the tags.  Again sayings are from other MFP Stamp sets.  Oh yeah, used brads in the holes of the tags instead of ribbons this time.

O.k. continuing with my TAGS theme but this time I altered one of the tags a bit but cutting out a banner in the bottom of the tag.  Used another supply I've had in my stash but never opened it for like six months.....it was time!  Texture paste and now I like it!  the spats are on a stencil that I spread the texture paste over, let it dry then added ink on top of it.  stamped the trees on the side of the tag, cut one out and mounted with foam tape then added glitter on the tag.  Second tag used a stencil, sponge dauber to create the paint circles then stamped the images.  Found that rectangle vellum tag in my stash...stamped the saying with Staz-On ink.  Sayings and sun image are from other MFP Stamp sets.

More TAGS to show you today with Sophia Let's Go stamp set.  Really had tag-riffic time with these two tags because I did what I consider mixed media collage stamping.  Another words a bit of everything....stamping, paper piecing, stenciling plus added some washi tape.  Oh, yes  also some fussy cutting.
