alexandra's Sunday scrapbook - How to Stamp in Molding Paste


Hello dear Friends and welcome to another edition of alexandra's Sunday scrapbook. I'm excited to share a very simple and fun technique today: stamping on Molding Paste to create instant texture with zero bulk. I've illustrated this with a layout and used two stamps:

* edge to edge # 30-164
* indian wheel # 40-20

Bonjour chères Scropines! Comme chaque week-end, j'ai le plaisir de partager un moment de scrap avec vous autour des produits Penny Black. Aujourd'hui, nous parlons tampons et mortier de structure  (aussi appelée "molding paste", "modeling paste", "pasta moldeado"...) Une façon simple et super efficace de créer de la texture sans faire gondoler la page. Technique illustrée avec une page et les deux tampons cités ci-dessus.

★★★
TUTO

I started by stamping the sentence found in the set "edge to edge"on the bottom of my page. I heat embossed it with clear powder.
J'ai commencé par tamponner la phrase trouvée sur la planche de tampons "edge to edge"puis je l'ai embossée à chaud avec de la poudre transparente.


Then using Golden Artist Colors Molding Paste and an old plastic card, I applied a thin coat of paste on the page and immediately after that I stamped the slapstick "indian wheel" onto it. I suggest cleaning your stamp with soap and water right away before the medium has a chance to dry and harden.

Ensuite, j'ai étalé une fine couche de mortier avec une vieille carte de fidélité. J'ai tamponné le tampon de fond dans le mortier et je l'ai lavé avec un peu d'eau et de savon.


I added a few red paint splatters to create a nice contrast with the white molding paste and also carry the red from one of the three pictures I used.
J'ai ajouté quelques taches de peinture rouge pour reprendre le rouge sur l'une des photos et créer un contraste avec le blanc du mortier.


Here is the page...
Voici la page finie...


a page about the fabulous, the IN.CRE.DI.BLE Blackhawks! In case, you are not hockey fans, really?... the Chicago Hawks have had an incredible season so far... we were fortunate enough to go see them play this past Tuesday at the United Center and we had a lot of fun.
Did you know that the goal song for the Chicago Blackhawks was Chelsea Dagger? So everytime they score a goal, the fans get up and sing the song. Here it is...
Saviez-vous que la chanson Chelsea Dagger est chantée par tous les fans des Blackhawks à chaque fois qu'ils marquent un but?!...la voici...

Thank You! Merci!

You always create the most amazing backgrounds!! I loveeeeee this! LOVING the bits of red!!!!

Kelly Griglione said...

SO IN LOVE with this latest work of yours!!! Aside from showcasing this technique, which adds such a custom look to your page, the elements are so perfectly chosen. The white of the paste plus the patterned stamp that slightly resembles a snowflake pattern ties in so well with hockey. And the floss that you used is absolutely BRILLIANT! Aside from general interest, the nod to the tracks in the ice from the skates is so perfect! Love, love, love it.

Too bad about Friday's game, but it was fun while it lasted : )

I never cease to learn when I visit here - the red splatters are super in drawing the eye towards the red in your photos & I love the way you used both white & black stars to echo the shape of your top red splatter. Your thread gives a lovely sense of movement to the whole too.

What a fun page! I love this technique - I really need to try it, I think I even have a jar of that stuff....isn't that bad, I haven't used it yet! I have very good intentions though. So fun that you were able to go to a game. We love hockey and I actually got to go to United Center years ago when my sister was living in Chicago. First of many games I think, huh?
