Thought I would carry on where I left off today,
with Micro Glass Beads, clear paste and our Clarity Stencils.
Remember yesterday, we were putting translucent embossing paste through a stencil and then attaching clear Micro Glass beads to it, as per Gill’s instructions?
(see yesterday’s blog to catch up to this point ...)
Well let’s go see...
Did the 4 hours drying time help?
I’d say so!
Now that’s better!
So much so that I got straight on the phone this morning
and ordered both paste and beads in to Clarity,
for all you One-Stop Shoppers!
So they’re both on our website as of now!
What to do to mount the work though...
Out with the brushes, ink pads and the Clarity Blending mat.
I trimmed the 7"x 7" Clarity Stencil/Gelli card I used the stencil on, and reached for a second sheet.
Blend the colours into the corners they appear through the stencil.
So, Ripe Persimmon top right,
Mustard Seed top left,
and Evergreen Bough along the bottom.
To get a smooth blend, go over the area where the colours meet with the lighter of the two colours.
There. That looks good.
The centrepiece glistens beautifully, but the frame is matte.
So let’s write a list of ingredients
with links in case you want to shop:
I have to crack on today,
with YouTube recording and prep for the NEC.
Am actually looking forward to the Biggest Show of the Year!
Love & Hugs,
