Coloring Texture Paste by Shell Carman

My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Shell Carman is here today to share a fun coloring technique featuring our March Main kit!

Here's Shell...

Hi There! Shell here today with a quick tip on how to create coloured texture paste like on this page

The March Main Kit contains a FAB new Prima mask which is so gorgeous. I wanted to use this & add some texture to the background of my page using some Impasto. I wanted the texture to be coloured rather than just having white which is the natural colour of Imapsto.

You will need
Shimmerz Blingz Magenta (or colour of your choice)
Foam Brush
small bowl
small paint brush

-Simply scoop some Imapsto into the bowl using the foam brush.Obviously the larger the area you are masking the more Impasto you need
-Give the Shimmerz Blingz a good shake before opening then use the paint brush to add some Shimmerz to the Impasto in the bowl. Around 5 drops should be plenty.
-Give the mixture a good stir so that it is completely mixed in using the foam brush.
-Use the foam brush to apply Impasto mixture to your page

Here is a closeup of the coloured Impasto on my page

Thanks for joining us today!
