What an exciting weekend it has been! The new Distress color Salvaged Patina is spectacular! Sorta green, sorta blue depending on what surface you lay it over...really, just a dreamy color to add to the Distress palette. It has been such a wonderful color to work with because it pairs so well with MANY other colors. For the LIVE on Saturday, about 20 samples were made by 4 makers (including myself) which we will be posting over the next few weeks. If you missed the Live on Saturday you can watch a replay by clicking on the link on Tim's blog HERE. In the LIVE, Tim shows how this new color fits into the current Distress palette, shares the 20+ samples, and then shows a few techniques using the new color. Totally worth your time.
Lets talk about my first project, a small Vignette Tray turned upside-down, to use the back as the front. One of my favorite ways to use a tray because it can go directly from my desk to the wall when i'm done!
This time I dribbled Salvaged Patina Oxide, Fossilized Amber, and Kitsch Flamingo.
I determined to leave the tray on my desk overnight (which I did). The next day when I came back to it, it appeared dry but if I touched the Oxide it left reside on my fingertips. Only one thing is going to fit that...
This is what it looked liked once dried overnight and sprayed with the fixative. What an easy fix! Literally the time it took to walk to the garage, spray and walk back to the craft room = less than 5 minutes.
Adhere the Curio Frame to the right of the tray.
I die cut the "Scribbly Butterfly" wings using Distress Watercolor paper (love the thickness), then used the Distress Embossing Dabber to coat the wings before adding the Salvaged Patina Glaze. Once melted with an embossing gun, the wings are ready for more color.
I added mica (you could use plastic) behind the butterfly wings, then scribbled Picked Raspberry and Fossilized Amber Distress Crayon over the mica. I rubbed the crayon with my finger to make it more translucent so once she is in the collage, you will be able to see hints of pattern through the wings.
I hope you enjoyed todays Salvaged Patina project. I will be back with more projects this week, so stay tuned!
