And now the projects for today:)

It’s been a while since I didn’t use texture paste onto my cards so now that I got some new ”toys” I decided to use them for this projects. I wanted to add some dimension to a stenciled layout so I first added the color with a blending foam and then applied the paste over that stenciling. I love the raised effect that I got with the paste by adding it only onto some of the areas. It is still a continuos pattern, but with a bit of dimension onto parts of the stenciled area.



I also created some dimension to the stenciled pattern by using a Copic marker and adding a bit of shading. And that’s another cool thing to do, it adds so much to a flat pattern so to say:)



For all my cards I used various dies and embellished my layouts with sequins or glitter. You can watch the how-to video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

Thank you and see you soon!

    Thank you , Andreea.
    I also do love working with texture paste… Did you colored it with acrylics or it is already colored ? I always used a first layer of gesso under the paste, but now you give me this idea to try use it directly on cardstock. So good to learn new things from friends 🙂 . Must see again your video about paper thicknesses 😉

      Hello, Teodora! It is already colored, but you can add color to a white paste with any kind of medium, inks, reinkers, markers (scribbled to the side on a mat or plastic bag), acrylics, you name it:). Gesso & paste together probably add to much weight or warping, I always do only the paste. For mixed media I use gesso, but not on my cards. The paper I work with is 240gsm weight. Thank you for your interest 🙂
