Hello GoGo’s, Madie here to share my take on Teri’s class back in March, using texture paste to create an ombre back ground.
Looks like it could be complicated but its really easy and not that messy! Using a circle stencil, Reeves molding texture paste and my favourite spray mists by Heidi Swapp. I used four different shades. I mixed one drop of each mist with a small amount of paste and used spreader to move the paste through the stencil which I taped down with a little masking tape so it wouldn’t move and I overlapped the pastes to blend the colours together to give it a cohesive look. Finished off with some fussy cutting, splats of mist, paper layering, embellishments and I used some washi tape on the tag which has my hidden journalling on.
I am making lots of effort to use my old paper stash and these are Crate paper, it was a range called ‘Pink Plum’ I couldn’t tell you what year it was released but I really like the colour combination, it’s suits the hot and spicy food I was learning to make in the picture. I love Thai food and recently attended a masterclass to learn to make a pangnan curry and dim sum.
I really like the way this layout came out and hope it inspires you to get your paste and inks out to have a go!
