Scrappy Angie's: Distress Paint Part 2

I'm back with Part 2 of Tim Holtz® Distress Paint tips/techniques. They are such amazing paints that you should get them if you do not have any :)

Today I'll be sharing a FEW techniques with you today - Painting, Stamping, Coloring - so let's get started!


1. Get your favorite Tim Holtz® Distress Paint colors out

2. I cut a piece of watercolor paper (3"x5") or you can use a large manilla tag. Use the distress paint and swipe across the tag. Before it's dry, mist it slightly with some water.

3. Next mix an equal portion of gesso and glass bead gel.

4. Get your favorite stencil/mask and use a spatula to spread the mixture on it. The thicker it is, the more 3d it will look.

5. Dry it with a heat tool but do not heat it too near else it will bubble up.

6. Next, stamp your favorite image with some archival ink as you will be painting on the image and you do not want it to bleed.

6. Dab a small amount of Distress Paint on your craft sheet - you don't need much. Then use a brush and start painting. After you are done, just fussy cut around the images.

7. Dab some Distress Paint on your favorite stamp and stamp on your tag.

8. Finally, you can also color your ribbons with the some Distress Paint to match your tag. Dab some on your craft sheet and mist it with water. Then, just dab your ribbon on it.

Here's what I've made with all the above techniques!

Do join me next week for another fun tutorial!
