O.k...it's Friday and well, I was playing along really getting into this technique and what do you suppose happened? I finished putting my stuff away and realized I forgot to take pics!!! OMG - what is wrong with me - LOL!! I just started playing and I guess really got into it because I never even gave it a though.
Oh well - it's pretty easy and the original technique can be found here... Neon Fire & Ice. It's another gesso related technique for the Club Scrap May Technique Challenge - MM with a focus on gesso. Those directions use neon inkers, I used a variety of blue Memento Luxe Inkers but you can use whatever inkers you want. I also used book binding glue because it was sitting on my desk but other than that I did most everything the same (shocker I know!). I did add some chunky glitter to one of the pieces while it was still wet.
I was able to pull 6 prints from one application of glue, gesso and inkers. I thought that was pretty good. Here are my resulting panels -
These two are mirror images of each other - the one on the left was the first panel I dipped into the mix - it was a pretty heavy coating so I pulled a print off of it.
These were made on the lovely shimmery grey cardstock from The Blues kit. I like that some of the grey still shows through.
And these two are the final prints. The one on the dark blue cardstock was the last monoprint I pulled, the white panel was made by dabbing up the remaining glue/ink/gesso mix. Hate to waste any you know.
And here are a few cards I made using these prints!
On the lovely grey shimmer paper.
This is my chunky glitter print.
and I made another card from this grey shimmer print too.
Can you tell I love that paper?
So there you go...another fun mix-y, messy technique for you to try!
