Technique Thursday - #1 - Packaging Stain

Hello, hello, I am so excited to share my first technique for Technique Thursday.


The first technique I am going to share with you is a technique I have been loving at the moment with my 12x12 layouts.

These are the Thing you will need.

- Water
-Wipes/Paper Towel
- Gelatos (could be Distress Ink or Mists)
- Plastic Packaging
Step 1-
So the first thing you do is get your packaging and draw on some gelatos or spray in your mist.

Step 2-
Now you want to add one spray of water. You may need to add a little more if need be. If you use gelatos I like to mix the water and the gelato with my finger.

Step 3-
Now carefully fold your packaging in half and move your water and mist/gelato/ink around.
Step 4-
Here comes the fun part of placing it on your layout. You have to understand that every time you do it, it will be different. Hopefully you get a stain like the photo below.
You can now add more of the same colour or add more colours, like I have done.

Final Product -
Now here are some examples I have done with 12x12 layouts with this technique.

I hoped you enjoyed this technique and if you have any techniques you have done let me know down in the comments.

Have a lovely day.
