Day 29 was supposed to use Luminarte’s Silk Acrylic Glazes, but not having those, I made my own glaze using Magical’s by Lindy’s Stamp Gang. I started with a small amount of the dry magical’s mixed with Golden’s Acrylic Glazing Liquid in Satin. While I like the glazing for the background, the places where the glaze was used more heavily in the middle of the flowers didn’t really dry well and remained sticky. Not sure if this is because the glaze medium is not supposed to be put on so heavy – though again, I’d use it as a background because I like the glazes color with the mica from the magical’s. The jounaling prompt was what is your dream job? I’d have to say my current one because it allows me the freedom I need to work from home, work the hours I prefer, and have a supportive manager. I do miss all my friends and co-workers from Wellpoint.
Day 28 is using Embossing Pastes and Sprays. I used Molding Paste with a Club Scrap Stencil from “Breathe” collection and sprayed Dylusions over that. Then I used some cut out collage pages we did earlier in the month to make my flowers collaging them on top. I then used Multi-medium to cover the flowers and highlighted them with the Pitt Brush Pen from Faber Castell. That’s a great technique if you haven’t tried it because you can make a pen mark and then wipe it away if you work quickly, leaving a halo surrounding the flowers. Only two more days left, then back to some card making. Woohoo!
