Paper Towel Art with Mist by Celine Navarro 03/20/2010
Hi everyone ^^
Today I will show you, in this fun little tutorial, how to turn any paper towel into a fun, textured little piece of fabric to use for your layouts and albums.
I was recently inspired by Karine Cazenave-Tapie's new book, "Les Ateliers de Karine : Scrap Texture" (available in French) in which you can discover many fun and amazing techniques and I fell in love with one of her layouts, where she used some paper towel for her layout.
First of all, all you'll need for this technique is paper towel and Maya Mists.
For this layout, I used the Purple and the gold ones, but of course feel free to use any color depending on the papers you picked. You'll find so many amazing colors in the SC boutique, you'll just faint ^^
Take a piece of paper towel and spray the darkest color on top of it.
Depending on the paper towel that you have, you might have different designs and several layers.
On this one, there are circles. I decided to separate the two layers of papers for this one, hesitating between using the most colorful one or not.
I highly recomment this adhesive to glue the paper towel as it usually moves if you use regular double sided tape.
And here's my layout :
Feel free to mix stamps together : here I stamped with brown versafine ink (or brown Distress ink)the journaling square onto kraft paper then used a green versafine ink (or green Distress ink) to stamp the star.
By adding the butterfly stamp later, you get lots of contrast and a lot of brand new stamps :)
