Welcome everyone to Terminal #3 of our June Destination Inspiration posts! Julia here today with my project using the items packed in our travel bags this month:
1. Product - Paint
2. Technique - Any Resist
3. Color - Orange
4. Substrate - Coaster
And here's what I created with these supplies!
And now I'll take you through the steps I took to make this little panel.
I've been cleaning out and reorganizing my craft room for the last month and a half - and donated a lot of my excess to my church for their yard sale in June. And one of the things I got rid of was all of my coasters that have been languishing in a drawer for years!
(And as usually happens - as soon as you get rid of something you need it - right??!!)
Never fear! I just made my own coaster by cutting a piece of mat board 4" x 4" and curving the edges with my Zutter Corner Rounder! So here's my substrate - a coaster!
For my resist technique - I stenciled over my coaster using 3 different Tim Holtz mini stencils applying white acrylic paint through the stencils using a foam applicator.
Wash your stencils immediately after sponging with paint - it dries really quickly!
Here you can see the result of the stenciling with the paint.
Now to add the orange color. I rubbed 3 colors of Ranger Distress Oxide Inks - Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber and Walnut Stain onto my craft mat and spritzed with water.
I kept pressing the coaster into the inks until I was satisfied with the colors and the look of it. The wetter it is, the more it blends - the less wet it is you get the look of droplets.
Then I got out some items I thought I'd like to put onto my project. I added a Quote Chip along the top that I sponged in Ranger Distress Marmalade Ink. I added butterflies and a vintage poster from Layers/Botanical.
To finish off my project I added some orange rhinestones and propped it up on a little wooden easel!
Thank you for stopping by Terminal #3 at A Vintage Journey today - I hope I have inspired you with my creation using the contents of my travel bag. We hope you are able to stop by again next Monday when there will be a new Destination Inspiration post by another of the Creative Guides using the same supplies!
