Introducing our new monthly feature ~ Techniques with Eva Dobilas!

Hi there, this is Eva here today.  I am bringing you a new monthly feature that will showcase some fun techniques each month!! This month I choose to work with our Real Wood paper and showing you how to use it in different ways.  To show of the techniques I created three different ATC's. 

Die cutting with Real Wood paper.

ATC Life is

Dry Embossing with Real Wood Paper

ATC Love

Wet Embossing and painting on Real Wood Paper

ATC Butterfly

To see how I used the techniques on these ATC's please watch the video below.

 

On my Life is Beautiful ATC I used Samantha Walkers Spellbinders Antique Frame and Accents. I simply diecut it and to highlight the design I dry brushed some white acrylic paint and that is all you need. To decorate my ATC I used Samantha Walker's Life is Beautiful Unity Stamp set, which I painted with Twinkling H2O's.


On my Love ATC I did some dry embossing and used Spellbinders new Valor M-Bossibilities folder. Once I embossed the paper I once again dry brushed some white acrylic paint over it to highlight the embossing. Love that affect of embossing real wood paper, definitely one of my favorite techniques. To finish off my ATC I used Marah Johnson's Monarch Die cut frames, which I painted in with Twinkling H2O's. The Love stamp is by Justrite Stamps from their Winter Words set.


My last ATC is showcasing wet embossing on real wood paper. For this ATC I worked with My Favorite Things Inspired by Butterflies and Inspired by Love sets. I simply inked up my butterfly stamp with Versamark embossing ink pad and using White embossing powder I embossed it and here is what it looks like. Once I embossed it, I just painted it with Twinkling H2O's.

We will be featuring some of our other

New "Love Blooms" Paint-it collection!

Hi....this is Alicia, and I am thrilled to showcase the new Love Blooms Paint-it collection.  These papers are so versatile and so much fun to play with.  I created this beautiful page with my daughter's homecoming photos and I loved the hearts and florals on the papers I used.   I just chose different colors of Luminarte paints to paint the flowers and look how the floral pattern really popped when they were painted.

I also sprayed the background with some of the pretty Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist for extra color. 

Alice made this gorgeous card with the Love Blooms collection too.
