Playing With Embossing Paste

Hello! Welcome back to the BPM blog. So glad you are here. Today's project took some effort for me to put together. It must be the hustle bustle of life that drained most of my energy. What I do when this happens to me is look at my supplies and see if something will tickle my fancy. If there is still none, I search the web to get some ideas. How about you? How do you pull yourself out of a creative slump?

Back to the project, I am using the Blank Page Muse products below:

The stencil's size is 3" x 8". I want to capture all of the circle patterns so I cut a white cardstock using the same dimensions as the stencil. I applied white embossing paste over the stencil making sure that I apply an even coating of the paste over the stencil. I gently lifted the stencil and set aside the panel to dry. I cleaned the stencil right away using warm, soapy water. Before, I would use a brush to clean the stencil but sometimes it the brush messes up the stencil. Rubbing the stencil in between your hands like you are washing your hands seem to work in cleaning the stencil. 

Once the embossing paste is dry, I sprayed the panel with different colors of spray and stain, following the order of the rainbow. I set this aside to dry. You can also heat set it to speed up the drying.

I did a second layer of embossing paste but this time, I offset the stencil to create a shadow of circles. I added embossing glitter powder to the embossing paste while it has not dried. Once the embossing paste has dried, I heated the embossing glitter powder.

I stamped the image on white cardstock using a water friendly black ink. I painted the image using the same colors I used on the panel. 

I stamped the sentiment on vellum. I trimmed the words apart so I can scatter the words on the panel making sure that the order of the words is still correct.

I hope you like today's project. Please visit my blog, Maria Giselle's Creative Cuts, for more details.
