Here is my second project for Donna Salazar Designs
to share with you!
I hope you enjoy these couple of quick tutorials on creating
Fairy Dust Flowers and Spellbinging Acetate.
I love working with Donna’s products, they really do give you permission to just play and find your creative expression. I had a lot fun experimenting on this layout!
This is my gorgeous friend Deb Kingston taken on her last visit in Dec.
She really is a beautiful person inside and out!
The Handmade & Cut out flowers were made from the Crafty Chronical Paper.
I just cut rough circles from the Crafty Chronical and scrunched them up before inking them with the mix’d media inx and the smooch spritz. I then added the Fairy Dust Flowers as the centres.
I had lots of fun playing with the Smooch Spritz to create some pretty major drippage on this layout, I love how these inks worked with this Artistic Papers.
Fairy Dust Flowers – Tutorial
To make these simple flowers all you need is a Non Stick Craft Sheet, Mix’d Media Inx, Glossy Accents, Fairy Dust Glitter & Some brads or Gems.
Step 1: Ink directly onto your craft sheet.
Step 2: Use the Glossy Accents to draw flower
shapes over the ink.
Step 3: Sprinkle your Fairy dust over the glossy
accents while it is still wet.
Step 4: Leave overnight to dry completely, then peel
them off the craft sheet. You can use your scissors
to trim if needed.
Step 5: Add a Brad or a Gem to the centre and slightly
scrunch the petals up. You now have a nice little
pliable glittery flower.
Step 6: I added some of mine to the centre of some
scrunched paper flowers. I love the contrasting
look against the paper. You can ink the edges in
a contrasting colour for a different look too.
Spellbinding Acetate – Tutorial
To create these embellishments, you need the Spellbinders Shadow Flowers, Mix’d Media Inks, Fairy Dust, a piece of Acetate or light Transparency & A Heat Gun.
Step 1: Cut out your Acetate shape from the
Spellbinder Die Cut. If you place a sheet of
patterened paper over the acetate as you cut it, it helps
to give a cleaner cut. You also have an extra piece
cut that you can use on something else later.
Step 2: Ink your piece of Acetate with the Mix’d Media Ink
Step 3: Sprinkle fairy dust over the wet ink.
Step 4: Heat with your heat gun, Heat long enough
so that the acetate starts to crinkle up slightly.
This adds a nice dimension to the piece.
If you find that your glitter keeps rubbing off you can
also add a little clear embossing powder to your piece
while you are heating it. I liked the look of it being
more hit and miss than perfectly coated.
Step 5: You can lightly ink the edges in a contrasting
colour to add more depth to your pieces.
Step 6: On this piece I lightly sprayed one end with some smooch spritz.
