This month I created a fun tutorial on how to use different mediums to achieve a Graffiti style background. It was on the blog at My Creative Scrapbook a few days ago.
Are you interested in having a play with different mediums but unsure of where to start? This step by step tutorial is a great way to try it out & give something different a go! This is how I created the grungy/graffiti style background on this page.
First of all you will need these supplies
This is a 12x12 Crafters Workshop Chevron mask template. you don't need a 12x12 size though you can use smaller. Other patterns that would help create the same effect are bricks, waves, swirls etc
-Dark Blue Mist (Tattered Angels Saphire)
-Light Blue Mist (Generic from my LSS)
-Black ink (Versa Magic Midnight Black)
-Dark Brown Ink (Versa Colour Pinecone)
-Bright/Dark Yellow (Prima Coltsfoot)
-Navy Blue Ink (Prima Farmer Jeans)
-Teal Ink (Prima Teal Damask)
-Stamp (Kaisercraft grid stamp)
I have done this tutorial on come cardstock so you can see the texture paste better. For my page I used the We R Memory Keepers paper from the Main Kit.
First up use your fingers or a popcycle stick & rub some texture paste in 2 areas. I have done the top right hand corner & bottom left hand corner. Try not to be perfect when applying. It is better to get an uneven look. Let the texture paste dry.
Get your Dark Blue mist & undo the nozzle. Flick the spray nozzle onto the page so that it leaves splat marks
Now take out your Light Blue Mist & spray randomly around the page
Use the Teal & Yellow inks. Roughly smudge some ink over the texture paste
Use the black ink & stamp the grid patterns on top of the texture paste
Use the Dark Brown ink & roughly ink around the edges of the cardstock/paper
If you have a go at this I would LUV to see it!!
Thanks for looking!
