We’re on Day Three of Go for the Gold class.…are you having fun yet? By the looks of the student work so far, the answer is yes! It’s time to get just a little bit messier today….for those who love mixed media, this one’s going to make your little palette knife sing!
And by the way – have you shared this free class with your friends yet? They’ll thank you!
Make Gold Papers
While Ferro has a lot of applications and possibilities – I discovered it could solve my desire to have glittery papers on hand any time without having to have paper stacked up waiting to use – I can make just what I need with what’s in a little jar! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
Ferro comes in a variety of colors – I chose two of the most vintage colors, Old Gold for the reindeer, and Amber Gold for the sentiment – which is a little more orangey. I just love how they look together, and in combination with the pretty reindeer and sentiment dies from Impression Obsession, I liked how this one worked out!
The Deco Sheets by Tim Holtz are a nice quick solution to the desire for glitter paper. They’re thin, adhesive-backed, and come in a mixed pack of colors. I found them pretty easy to work with, and was glad to find 4 gold and 4 silver sheets in the pack.
The American Crafts POW Glitter Cardstock comes in two-packs of 12×12 sheets. The cardstock itself is pretty thick; I wish I’d known how tough it was going to be to diecut such a delicate die, oops! But you can learn from my mistake, and just use a simpler die. One like this would be much better. And know that this paper “leaks” – just a little bit. Not bad, but if you don’t like ANY glitter to come out, stay away from this one.
I’ll be at a watercolor class with the amazing Anna Mason today – we’ll be painting THIS ..is it really a beginner class like they say?? – so I’m not sure what the scope schedule might be. But listen for that little sound!
