JENNEKE'S SHABBY TUTORIAL


This month Jenneke is sharing with us how she made the cute butterflies on her gorgeous canvas she made for this month's challenge sample.


Here is what you will need:

Water in a spraybottle, joiner's glue or bookbinder's glue, a stamp, a hard paintbrush and.....toiletpaper (or tissue paper)

And here is what you will need to do.

Moisten the stamp


Gently 'push' a piece of toiletpaper on the stamp (make sure it goes into all holes), do this with about 3 layers of paper, until the surface is almost dry


Mix some joiner's glue (or bookbinder's glue) and a lot of water to it, mix it and dab it with the brush gently on the surface of the toiletpaper. LET IT DRY!!


When it's totally dry, ad 2 or 3 layers paper again with water, repeat process.


When dry, carefully pull the paper of the stamp.


Then cut the butterfly out of the paper.


Here is a close up of the finished butterfly. You can keep it white, but it's also possible to color it with glimmer mist, acrylic paint or something like that. To give it a protective layer, you can use some gel medium.



Thanks for sharing with us Jenneke.
