Trust Your Heart - Creative Scrapbooker

Hello friends! Welcome to my blog today, I am up on the Creative Scrapbooker blog sharing a step out tutorial with you.  I hope you like what i have designed for you today.

I have been feeling somewhat rusty lately, LOL and by saying that I mean, i have been using the Rust Paste from Prima Marketing on alot of my projects lately.  This little jar of goodness is really easy to use, you just need to apply it in a dabbing motion, and heat set or let dry and this is what the end result looks like. Its super easy to use and the effect is pretty incredible. Here is a sneak peek. 


The base of this tag is a Tim Holtz Etc tag measuring 4.5 x 8. I then covered it with gel Medium and placed Rice Paper from Ciao Bella  ( Oxido CBRP073) on top, applying a coat of gel medium on top and Heat setting to dry. Just be careful with the rice paper, it can tear very easy when it gets wet.



I wanted to tone down some of the red in this rice paper so i did a white wash with gesso.
You will need to heat set this to dry. 

Once that step was dry, i grabbed a stencil and added some texture paste, i kept the texture paste only to the outside edges of the tag as i wanted the center to be free of texture as i had a plan for this area. 


here is the result of the texture paste step, you will need to heat this to dry at this stage.


Here comes the rust paste: i dabbed the edges of the tag using a sponge brush, and once again, heat set to dry, I did not put a really thick coat on, i just wanted the edges to look like rust. 


Next  wanted to use Tim Holtz Faceted Heart Die;  I die cut it out on craft cardstock, assembled it and it looks like this


I then added a coast of Rust Paste adding in some brown, orange and green rust paste especially in the areas where i wanted to add shadows


I then die cut out a Graphic 45 gear tag on black cardstock


i cut the edges off and kept the center piece intact, dabbed on a coat of Orange rust paste, a bit of green and heat set


I added rust paste to some wooden gars i had left over from a previous project, i grabbed these from our local dollar store; 


I added a key, a chain and some small hinges just because.  And the title is also from Tim Holtz, its one of his chipboard sayings, i dabbed some rust paste on the edges. FInal step was t dab some Vintage Gold Wax on random areas to highlight the rust




And here is my Tag; 


I hope i have inspired you to try rice paper and Rust Pastes, they are super fun to play with.  

Until Next Time
Happy Scrapping!!
