IT'S TIME FOR........

Another Shabby Tutorial


This month Timea is sharing with us just how she did the background on her Alice project.
We just love the texture she has created behind the tree.


Here is what you will need

1. Ingredients........

Cardboard
Paint ( I used: Home Deco 3D paint, but you can use acrylics too)
Brush
Foil (folpack or glad wrap)
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist


And now for the how to.....


2. Add the paints onto the cardboard and spread it with a brush.


3. Cover with the foil.


4. Spread the paint through the foil more and crease to form the detail.


5. Take off the foil before dry and put aside cardboard to dry the paint totally.


6. Spray it with Glimmer mist.


7. Let it dry and it's ready to be used as a base for your next project.


This tutorial appeared in a Hungarian free e-magazine called Scrapbookozz velünk
