BTS: Creative Break

IMG_0822

My mind is always thinking. I’m thinking about new classes to offer. New ways to use products. New techniques to showcase. That after a while my brain needs to refuel. That is when I love to take some time to look through creative magazines. Last weekend I picked up Flow and Mollie Makes. Flow is “A Magazine for Paper Lovers” and Mollie Makes tag line is “Living a Creative Life”. I find after reading creative magazines I am refreshed and have a pile more creative ideas I want to put into action!

Ep. 1041 – Neon Amplify from Imagine Crafts

IMG_0203

Today I am showing you the Neon Amplify from Imagine Crafts. This is a paint that gets puffy with heat.

IMG_0204

Above I used the Purple Neon Amplify through the Texture Shapes Stencil with a sponge. Even when you still use a thin layer, the paint does get puffy.

Here you can see that I layered the Orange and Pink through the Layered Pattern Stencil. I then put little dots of Yellow, straight from the bottle, and you can see how they puff up quite high.

This is the card I made in the video, and I was able to write with the paint as well. I think there are many ways to incorporate the Neon Amplify into your projects, and I can’t wait to experiment some more!

On the next episode I am featuring the Art-C Groove Tool.

Thanks for watching!

Ep. 1040 – Dina Wakley Media Glazing Medium & Metallic Paints

IMG_0180

Today I am showing you Dina Wakley’s Glazing Medium and Metallic Paints from Ranger. Dina already had a line of Heavy Body Paints. By adding the Glazing Medium it now allows you to take her paints to another level. All of the paints can be mixed with the glaze, giving you a translucent medium. In the video I show you how to mix the glaze and then blend the paints onto your project.

Dina has also added 3 Metallic Paints to her line: Gilt, Sterling and Penny. On my page I used Black Gesso through the Insect Stencil. Once dry, I laid the stencil back over the butterfly and added the Sterling Paint. It now gives a beautiful sheen to the butterfly.

As well, Ranger has made a Fine Tip Applicator that fits onto all of Dina’s Paints. Since the paints are heavy body, they hold their shape. This allows you to add dots or writing to your projects.
