Faux Patina

Over at Club Scrap Anne Marie challenged us on creating a faux patina look for our projects, layouts and cards using acrylic paints and texture paste.  I'm going to show a different way to create a patina look using texture paste and Color Bursts. 

I started by trying different texture paste mediums with different applications. I found that I really liked the thicker paste.  First I mixed the copper Color Burst with the texture paste in a small amount on my craft sheet. I slathered the thicker paste on one card and used a stencil for the second. Let it dry. 

I then puffed the turquoise Color Burst directly on top of the panels and added water. 

I just rubbed my fingers of the thicker texture paste after the Color Bursts dried to bring more of the cooper out.

This card was created for the Retro Sketch #215 challenge and the Club Scrap Technique Challenge. Give it a try, add your link at the bottom of the Technique blog post to win a gift certificate.

When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
