My new techniques for Imagination Crafts

My Starlight Paint Techniques for Imagination Crafts

Here are the two techniques I devised for Imagination Crafts using the new Starlight Paints as Sue used on the new Hochanda channel "Imagination Crafts" show seen yesterday 10th Sept.

Technique No 1.  - Painted flowers using Starlight Paint.  

These flowers and leaves were painted with "Starlight Paints" - to get this affect you load your paint brush with two different colours (one either side of the brush) then press down the brush down onto dark cardstock and wiggle to spread the colour into a petal shape leaving the darker colour in the middle.. Lift off the brush and do the same again to create another petal. Turn the cardstock to make it easier to paint each petal in turn until you have a complete flower,

The leaves were done in a similar way but you just press down and spread the colour onto the cardstock whilst wiggling the brush a little then turn the brush  and lift away from the card which will then form a point. Do the same for the other side of the leaf and then, when dry, cut them out to use as embellishments. 

Technique 2- "Sparkle Medium" Large Glitter

Spread some Sparkle Medium onto a Craft Mat and let it dry out. Scruch it up into big flakes and use this to stick onto your cardstock like big glitter. It looks fabulous if you use lots of different colours too. 

I hope you like my new techniques - I'll try and get a video up on here for you to actually see how I| did this. Off now to play even more with my craft stash.......
