metallic Clearly For Art...

today I wanted to share another fun technique that uses

it creates a very cool metallic effect...
and adds a fun twist to CFA...

this is one of the techniques I demoed @ CHA.
Christine & Mark from Scraptime, in Canada,
filmed the video...

THANKS Christine & Mark!
check out their site...
there's tons of videos & inspiration there...

I wanted to share a few close up shots, so you can really see how cool these turned out...

the first sample shows the CFA blackout flower on a card I did for the Ranger booth...

the flower was created with my flower stamps...
the smaller flower was stamped with my
using jet black archival...

the cute center is a new Blossom Bucket piece...
oh...
new art parts flourishes are there too...


the next shows the new clicker cutts small journal pages...
and this flower was made with the new clicker cutts blackout flower...
I don't think the clicker cutts have shipped just yet...

the gold center flower is new from my Blossom Bucket line...
this one is my MOST favorite...
seriously...it IS!
this is what it looks like right from the package...
very vintage...


and here's a close up of a whole sheet of CFA blackout...

that has been painted with a layer of Glue N Seal...
use the matte finish...


then I added both silver & gold metallic mixatives...

you can really vary the amount of each mixative you use & get lots of cool looks...



in the video I also show how you can add other colors of alcohol inks over these layers...
and you get yet another totally different result...

try it...this is so much fun!

ok...


I'll be interested to hear your thoughts...

while you watch a video...

I'll...

make art!
wendy
ps...I see a "DELIVERY" is scheduled for today...
guess what?
could it possibly be BOOK #6?
I'll be back tomorrow when I actually have them in house!
yippee!
