Happy Saturday and Happy New Year!! Thanks for stopping by for our very first basic training of 2014. Michele here today and I am going to share a technique that can be used on just about ANY project. I used it on an art journal page for this little demo.
You will need gesso, acrylic paint, sponge or paint brush, baby wipes and stencils. For this project I started with a page from my art journal.
Cover your surface with a thin coat of gesso. Let it dry completely. I am not a patient person so I helped it along with my heat gun but be careful or your gesso will bubble and while I LOVE that technique it cause a bumpy surface and will give you trouble for this technique.
Once your gesso is dry paint on your acrylic paint, I used Distress paint.
While your paint is drying a little take a baby wipe and squeeze out any excess liquid.
Here is my finished art journal page.
I hope you enjoyed this fun technique and I hope to see it on one of your future projects! Come back often to play...we have 2 drills every month and your can win fun prizes!
Happy scrappy 2014!
