Phew!! By the seat of my pants I have managed to complete my tutorial for the FD blog :0)
The photos are not brilliant as they have been taken in my craft room late at night but, hey ho, you will get the gist!!
Recently I have been a little obsessed with texture and before I bought embossing paste (my new favourite thing) I came across this lovely idea and have been playing with it ever since.
So, in order to get these little lovelies:
Looks and feels like embossed, distressed chipboard
|Yes, toilet roll, water and a Cuttlebug or something similar|
So, down to business:
|Rip off 8 sheets of loo roll|
|Lay them in the water for a couple of seconds|
|Goodness only knows what is going through your mind now! But you need to squeeze the tissue gently.|
|Unfold it so it is kind of back to its original shape|
|Place it in whatever embossing folder you fancy and run it through your machine|
|And here is one, still damp, from the machine. You can leave it like this to dry, or...|
|You can play with your inks and sprays whilst it's wet for a muted look, or.....|
|wait for it to dry for a more vibrant feel. Both of these had the same Tattered Angels Chalk Mists sprayed onto them: Cornflower Daze, Apricot Nectar and Firefly as well as Cosmic Shimmer Chalk: Pastel Green|
|Crate Paper 'Neighbourhood' Collection|
but I also like to cut out by hand and leave it white:
but then again.....I love it all tattered and torn.....
I just think it's genius and make up batches at a time. Hope you enjoyed this and give it a try :0)
