I wanted to share a technique here with you that I have up on the ScrapMuch? site today. I have recently been introduced to this technique myself. Actually, I have been aware of this technique / product for quite sometime, but have refrained from attempting it as I thought it seemed a little daunting.
Boy was I wrong, it is so fun and so simple and produces a really wonderful look.
|My apologies for having the back of the product to you, but this is Martha Stewart Texture Paste and it is available at ScrapMuch?. It is basically a water based paint with a texture medium in it. To get started you will need the paste, a mask in any style, and something to spread the paste. I like a disposable knife for easy clean up, though palette knives work best.|
|It is unlikely you will do the whole page, rather you will want to do a couple or few strategic spots. It is a good idea to have a rough idea of where your papers and larger elements will sit. But you could always wing it, that is fun too!|
|You'll notice I have chosen to add texture to two spots on my card.|
|Gently lift your mask , for this mask pulling from one side to the other works best.|
|Here is a close up of my textured area.|
