Hello everyone! Today I have a Sizzix tutorial for you, using a fun and simple resist technique. I made a layout, but the technique work for many types of projects. Indeed, the result might be better on a somewhat smaller surface.
When I got Stephanie Ackerman's new words dies, I wanted to do a background using most of the words. Leo has just started to walk and I realised that I hadn't scrapped about when he learnt to sit, which was a big thing for him, gaining a whole new perspective on his toys and other things. I am tucking more photos and journaling in behind the layout. The dies were used to create masks, which resisted the watercolour paint. I used Prima's watercolours, but any watercolour paint will have the same effect. Ordinary table salt created the cool texture.
These are the Thinlits sets and Framelits that I used: Circle Words: Faith, Create, Brave & Joy, Circle Words: Yay, Thanks, Sweet & Awesome, Circle Words: Love, Hello, Happy & Home, and the Circles & Icons, Hearts & Star. I love word dies and these are all so versatile and useful, great for scrapbooking, cardmaking and art journaling.
I didn't want the words to be stark white, so I started by giving my paper beige wash.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
