Good morning all,
Hope Monday finds you well.
It is week 13 of the
Lockdown Lavinia Homework
This week we are going to revisit an old technique,
The use of Rock Salt to create a background.
These backgrounds work perfectly with the new release Lavinia stamps,
Here is a closer look
For those who are new or have forgotten about this technique.
Here is a little tutorial of how I created this one,
You can use watercolour paints, or similar mediums for this ,
I decided to use my Brusho powder just to shake up the technique a bit.
So I added the Brusho powder to the card
Make sure the card will take water well, as the next stage is to add the water.
Next add the rock salt, and leave to dry.
I left mine overnight
The salt absorbs some of the water,
I just love how it looks.
It is quite therapeutic brushing the salt off too.
Next add some stamping...
This is my new favourite Lavinia stamp
I had to add some finishing touches with glossy accents and my white Posca pen.
I hope you have a play with this technique,
It is great fun.
I must go, lots more samples to create today .
I hope it is a good day
and a good week for is all.
Much love and hugs
