This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to use a Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamp – or any Simon brand product to help us kick things off!
I was inspired to create a mixed media cover of a shadow box using Distress Paints to make the textures for this week's challenge.
This is a blank board box sized 5" X 7 1/4" X 2 1/8". I'll be decorating inside of the shadow box in the future. For this week, I focus on creating the mixed media cover.
First, I apply a thin layer of Gesso on the cover of the box using a paint brush.
Stamp the Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge Stamps with Distress Paints to create the background patterns.
Apply UTEE on the wet Distress Paints and heat set to make the beautiful textures on the background.
Some gorgeous Prima Flowers, resin embellishments and Tim Holtz metal embellishments were attached on the box.
I hope you enjoy the technique I shared to create the patterns and textures with Distress Paints, stamps and UTEE. Please hop over to lovely and talented Michelle Zerull's blog for more inspiration. Have fun!
