Hope you are all good!
Wow the weekend has come and gone already
can you believe its the dreaded Monday tomorrow?Aaacck!
This week I said I would try do some you tube tutorials using
Tim Holtz Distress paints.....
as you know I'm a techno dinosaur when it comes to anything technical
so I've tried to master the art of you tube......may I add not very well!!
but after fiddling, poking and pressing lots of buttons on my keyboard
I think it might just work
but first you need to see the man himself work his magic with his really cool Distress Paints
for more inspiration click here to Tims blog
Heres some quickie info on distress paints
1. Distress paints are a water based acrylic paint
2. The paints need a quick shake before using
(you will hear a small metal ball rattle when shaking)
3. The paints are reactive with water, when dry the background becomes permanent
4. The paints can be used on lots of surfaces from paper, card, canvas, metal and wood
so grab yourself a cuppa
Here is how I like to use distress paints
Part 1-using distress paints direct
Part 2 -dipping
part 3- blending distress paints
Part 4 -Distress paint with perfect pearls
for best results slighty dry the paint then brush on the perfect pearls
using a perfect pearls brush
when using this technique you should get this look
( I used a couple of different colours of perfect pearls)
If you want a more subtle look
just dab a smaller amount of paint to the area
see below along with a smaller amount of perfect pearls
Are you still with me??
The last video uses a palette knife or craft scrapper
( I was inspired to use a palette knife after recently watching
the very talented Hels Sheridan.........
thanks Hels just had to give this a go x)
Heres my take on it
Part 5 - palette knife, stamping and adding dylusions
I really hope the videos have been helpful,
just wish I was more techno minded!
Oooo and do you
Remember my dylusions phone from this post??
well I did film a tutorial for that too and had totally forgot that I had uploaded it
so once I have twiddled with that I will try and share how I created it
in my next post
As always feel free to leave a comment
just leaves me to say have a fabulous week!
bye for now
