Hello all and happy Friday!
I got a chance to play with Core’dinations White Chalk Core cardstock and I had heaps of fun using my stencils on it. I must admit, this page didn’t turn out at all the way I planned (including a change of photo), but that’s how projects sometimes go don’t they?
I began with Core’dinations Chalk Core, which you can sand or emboss to expose a white center! I wrote a quote in white pen and white pastel pencil.
Next, I used the Sand It Gadget from Core’dinations to expose some of the white core and give it a more worn look.
After that I played with TCW478s Beaded Curtain using embossing powder and mist, again all in white.
Then I took another sheet of Chalk Core cardstock, TCW470 Geometric Art Layers, and applied metallic acrylic paints with sponges.
Finally, I cut them up into strips to use as layers on my page. It’s a simple yet great way to make your own patterned paper!
After that I built my layers, including molding paste and TCW492s Kasias Letters and splattered paint. The background became decidedly more grungy so I decided to change pictures 😉 I’d just returned from a trip to Melbourne, Australia where I’d taken photos of some alleys filled with amazing urban street art so I choose something from those pics. Here’s some close ups:
And that’s having fun with Chalk Core!
