New Technique

As I said when i was playing yesterday i sort of discovered something i liked. I was drying my page in a hurry ( as ya do ) and some 3 d paint that i had used for texture ( I use anything and everything when it comes to texture )
Well ..... it started to bubble of course, and me being me - Just couldn't just leave it, I had to carry on to see what it would do. would it burn ? would it bubble more? would it disintegrate ? or would i set myself on fire ? ... only one of the above happened !!
It bubbled more - I heated it up more with my heat gun .. it bubbled and crackled and stretched and reminded me of when i was a child with bubble gum. I then took a pin and pricked the bubbles. took the heat away .... then did it again, and again.
this was the result ....













A fabulous foamy looking texture that i loved. (this one was done today for demo ) Its shiny because the 3d paint stuff is. But it could be deshined i reckon with a little acrylic but i haven't tried that yet but i like the shine anyway.
So as we all do, we like to try something else, just to enhance the texture yes ? YEP
I used Adirondack wild plum alcohol ink and a pearl mixative and blending solution. The result is below ... isn't it fabby ?? well i think so hehe. I love the light, the texture and the colour. I was thrilled. Ok I know i am getting over excited for such a small thing but hey ... it was fun

Wow, June, that is a very fascinating texture! It's really beautiful how the purple and the aqua toss and tumble together. I've had the bubbles when I didn't want them. I never even thought of sticking them with a pin. I will do that next time it happens.

Just wanted to say I only found your site today and it’s really cool. You’ve been very busy and have so many good ideas. Your creations are really cute. I write a London based crafty e-zine and blog named Extremely Crafty Ideas at http://extremelycrafty.blogspot.com/ Would love to hear what you think. You and some of the other card crafters I’ve recently found have inspired me to write an upcoming card craft e-zine!
