Hello Everyone! and welcome.
Our new challenge at A Vintage Journey is
HOW CAN YOU RESIST
and the lovely Amanda is our host this month and the idea behind our theme is to use at least one resist technique in your project. There are many different products in mixed media that can be used - gesso, distress glaze, wax, embossing powder just to name a few.
We hope this inspires you to get out your products and create - how can you resist?!
I seem to be a little obsessed with making mini books at the moment - so apologies that here is another one. Despite this being a real mini (3" x 3") I have managed to use quite a few resist techniques.
I started with a gesso resist on this small Tando Creatives Mini Book.
The gesso was added haphazardly so that the inks would resist it in different ways.
Texture Paste used as a resist - after spraying with Distress Spray Inks I sanded the text to lighten and open up the lettering.
Embossing powder ...... hmmmm ....now you can see what a messy stamper I am! It didn't look too bad but the close up photograph shows me up!
And finally I used an embossing folder for the inside cover pages which again acted as a resist in the same way as the texture paste, but this time lightly brushed gesso over the raised areas.
We do hope that you will join us in our challenge this month and get out those wonderful resist products or check out all those wonderful techniques on Pinterest. If you are still in need of inspiration then DO hop on over to A Vintage Journey for all the details of our challenge and some amazing projects from my Creative Guide teamies.
As always thank you for joining me and happy crafting!
