So today I played catch up with the fall challenge I have entered. The challenges keep coming and I am struggling to keep up, but it is definitely worth it.
This challenge was to use resist techniques or journal about things we find hard to resist. I tend to keep most of my pages quite impersonal, so went with resist techniques, and ended up doing two pages.
On the page above I stamped the jumbled up letters for irresistible with black ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. The result was very patchy but looking back I am glad I carried on as I really like it. Over that I spayed with blue and green sprays and waited for it to completely dry, then wiped over my embossing as it acted as a resist. I then placed a grid stencil over my page in different areas, dabbing an embossing ink pad over the top, which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then sprayed a sliver spray through the same grid stencil and wiped the excess from the embossing. To finished I stamped out Stamping is Irresistible on different scraps of paper and glued them in place.
On this page I repeat stamped the word irresistible and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, trying to ensure I got really good coverage, and then sprayed over the top with both silver and orange sprays. Once dry I wiped over the page as the embossing acted as a resist. I did not really want to do anything else to this page , but felt it looked unfinished in my journal, so I just painted a black boarder and a little witch on a hill.
Thank you for reading
