Back in June, a local photographer, Stacy Breen-Crane, was offering mini photo shoots with the proceeds going to charity. I jumped right on board and got some amazing pictures of Molly and Gabe at the park on one of the only nice days we had that month! They were perfect to use in our July class with lots of Prima Color Bloom sprays.
We layered mist through a stencil, then modeling paste through a large stencil, then more paste through the same, but smaller, stencil. All of that was heated in between to overdry and bubble up the paste, making lots of gorgeous texture. Then, we sprayed and sprayed and sprayed. And dripped. And tossed on some Stampendous embossing enamel while the spray was still wet. Look at the awesome texture!
As if that wasn’t enough shine, we dusted Perfect Pearls over the spray to take down the stickiness (thanks to Cathie for that fabulous tip!)
You can see there’s also gold thread under the photo, and we finished with some sticker labels and rubons:
Believe it or not, the second LO is almost identical, including the sprays. Just to show how different these colours can look depending on how much you spray and how you layer them, I used the exact same colours but in different order and intensity:
We also sprinkled the embossing enamel on the paste before we dried it, which allows it to cover a completely different area than the first LO.
There’s still tons of shimmer and texture, just done in a slightly different way:
We had a ton of messy fun doing this one, and it was incredible to see how different all the LO’s were, even when people used the same products and colours.
For my fellow Canadians, it’s Thanksgiving – enjoy, eat lots, and have fun doing your thing!
