This week we are going to talk about the different effects you can get with paints.
Paints have become increasingly popular and we thought that a week about paints might be interesting for those who are just starting to use them... and maybe for the more advanced crafters out there...
So we start off with Isa'sArt and a gorgeous distressed tag. Easy technique but SO effective. Hope you like it ;)
I started with a layer of gesso (this is to protect my tag and it also give a nice texture), then I added a bit of paint (turquoise and red: such a wonderful vintage combination!), and finally, a few ink stains
I finished it off by sanding and adding a bit of brown ink... et voilà :)
