Happy Tuesday, my friends!
Today I have a tutorial for you on how to use modeling paste on a layout (or card, or anything else your creative little mind can come up with :)!
First, you'll want to gather up some supplies...
I used one of my favorite masks from SC, some card stock, washi tape, a plastic knife, a small paint brush, some of my favorite mists, and some modeling paste (the exact kind I used is pictured below).
Next, place your mask anywhere on your page that you would like. Adhere it down using some washi tape. The washi helps hold it in place and is easy to remove when your done.
Now smear some of that paste over your mask using the knife until it's completely covered and your satisfied. (I should have used the side of the knife that wasn't serrated for a more even look and I'm sure there's a fancier tool for this, but I don't have it, lol!)
It should look somewhat like the photo below...
Now you can remove the mask and let the modeling paste dry. I was surprised at how fast it actually does dry so you won't have to wait too long, probably around 20 - 30 minutes :)
After the modeling paste dried, I took a small paint brush, dipped it in my Mister Huey's spray ink, and painted a few of the chevrons for added effect. I love the pops of color it gives the dimension of the paste!
Finally, after the paint dries, you can start assembling your page!
And here's the completed layout using the modeling paste technique...
I've scrapped this photo of my family before, but I don't mind doing it again :) It's a rare thing when we're all together in a photo, so it's totally justified!
I used products from my March kits from Studio Calico for this layout and a printable and stamp from LifeLovePaper.com
I hope this tutorial gets you breaking out the modeling paste and using it on your next project! It's a really fun medium to use and once you try it, I know you'll be hooked! I would also love to see what you create so be sure to link up your project using modeling paste here by April 2, 2013 for a chance to win some "happy mail" from me!
Have a great day and TFL!
