Hi Everyone!! I'm posting this for Irene. I also have a pdf available for those who would like to be able to download and print it out. I tried attaching it here but the file is too big. I will keep working on it, but in the meantime I wanted to get this to you because it is SOOOOOO awesome!!!
We all know that Irene's pages are out of this world. Well, for her tu at the Anatomy, she is doing something a little different. She is giving us a tutorial on how she created her background on this STUNNING page!!!! Here we go!
Iron Gate die cut
Shimmerz – 2 colors
Put the mask over the patteed paper and randomly apply some white gesso on it using a palette knife. Let it dry. Do not remove the mask.
Mist two colours of Shimmerz mist on it. Later, use a wet wipe and wipe off any inks which are on top of the areas with gesso. Let it dry. Do not remove the mask.
Enhance the masking with Faded Jeans distress ink and a sponge or the distress ink applicator. Then only remove the mask.
Use a brush and Peeled Paint distress ink to color part of the masked image. (Swipe some distress ink onto a non stain mat and mist of water over it. Use a brush to pick up the colours to paint.)
Cut a portion of the die cut gate piece and attach it to the right of the layout.
Then, add your photograph and some embellishment around it.August 14, 2011 at 11:47 pm #132023

Thanks. I read that some of you are asking, what is the difference between gesso and white paint? Firstly, gesso is a medium which is normally used to prep the rough surface of canvas for painting. This means, it will create dimensional textures if you apply on a flat surface. If course, the more you use, the greater the texture. Gesso when wet, can be mixed with some acrylic paint, reinker for more fun.
Secondly, gesso as a resist towards water based mediums. Geeso when dry, create an amazing surface towards water based mediums. You can easily use a wet wipe to wipe off any water based mediums on it. Unlike white paint, when it gets wet, it will starts to mix with the medium and you can't wipe that off.
Hope this helps to answer some questions.August 15, 2011 at 1:09 am #132035August 15, 2011 at 1:16 am #132036August 15, 2011 at 1:39 am #132037
