Please have in mind I hate to mess up my pages and cards and I dislike any medium which has to lay on my desk to dry. So I dislike paint, I dislike mist and anything that require a heat gun! But I loved the dimension the modelling paste gave and wanted to give it a try. So I went out and bought a can of it.
I had some small canvases laying around, probably from a few years back when my kids were into painting. So off I went - misted, inked and added paste.
Here is my first attempt with modelling paste:
|Canvas & modelling paste: Panduro. Butterfly mask: Crafter's Workshop. Mist: Tattered Angel. Clay charm: Charms Creations. Pearls, doilie & cloth: Unknown|
I din't know where to start, I didn't know where to go, but I'm happy with my first attempt, even both the colors and flowers are very different from what I normally use (so why on earth do I have it among my supplies in the first place?)
|The flower spray adds lots of dimension to the canvas|
I enjoyed the process and deiced to give a second try. I felt more confident, and decided to try different colors and a new approach. This time I inked the background before I added a touch of clear glimmer mist and the modelling paste.
|Canvas & modelling paste: Panduro. Ink: Color Box. Glimmer mist: Tattered Angels. Butterfly Chipboard: Maya Road. Thistle Chipboard: Imaginarium Design. Burlap, alpha & twine: unknown|
I discovered the negatives from the thistle chipboard worked perfectly as a mask, so I pulled out an old circulair frame to use as mask for the sun.
I admit it: I love the structure the modelling paste gave! And as I wanted to keep on playing, I added modelling paste both to my next layout and a card :-) And I will do it in the future, too, I know.
Tell me, have you discovered any fun tecniques lately? Do you have a link to share?
Have a happy, messy week!
