Welcome Back

 

If you have bought Grunge board and don’t know what to do with it, then keep watching. I bought some AGES ago and just left it in the cupboard, until I saw a demo by Sheena Douglass, painting on it and creating bracelets with it. Here is my video version of Grungeboard Bracelets using Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints.

 

This is part 5 of the tutorial, which shows how to assemble your bracelet.

It took me two months searching to find Golden’s Fluid Acrylic paint in the UK, so in a break from tradition I am linking to a specific store that stocks it in the UK.

Welcome Back

Regular viewers of this blog will have noticed that I have taken quite a liking to Grunge board in the last few weeks. I decided to experiment and see if grunge board was a suitable weight for a book cover, it was a success and today I’d like to share some pictures of the results.

Grunge Board Book 1

I painted the Grungeboard using the same techniques as I showed in the garland tutorial last friday. The board does distort as you heat it, but if you are careful and pin it flat while it is still warm and hold it flat till it dries it is possible to minimise the effect. I coloured natural linen thread with dye ink to match the colours on the covers. The exposed stitching on the spine really stands out well against the darker edges of the covers. The book opens completely flat, which makes it a joy to write in.

Here you can see that I painted the inside of the covers in a similar way but used a text stamp in the background. I love this effect. The stamp is made by Hero Arts, I believe it is called ‘Old French Writing’. I’m really pleased with how this turned out. It’s hard to show how antique this looks in a photograph, in real life it looks like antique brass.

Front & Back covers of my Grunge Board Book

Here is a view of the book, to show the front and back covers together. The stamps on the cover were from Creative Expressions ‘Holly’ plate. This is the same plate that had the small holly and poinsettia designs which were used in my Grunge Paper Garland tutorial, last friday. I used Fluid Acrylic paint by Golden for this project, the Interference Gold fine mixed into the red and green paint, gave them an iridescent look too. It is very versatile paint and well worth the investment.

Modify the stamps used on the cover and select a watercolour paper and this would make the perfect art Journal for a creative friend. The Coptic stitch binding, means the book lies completely flat in use, making it perfect to paint or write in. Make sure you wax your thread well and it will seal in the colour if you died the thread. Waxing the thread also means it will resist paint etc, when the book is used as a journal.

For suppliers of these Golden’s paints in the UK, go to Jackson’s Art supplies. There details are listed in the Art links area of the side bar of this blog. There is also a direct link to the manufacturers of Golden paints in the side bar, you will be able to find a colour chart of available colours in the Fluid Acrylic range on that site. I adore these paints.

Grunge Board is made by Ranger, under the Tim Holtz ‘Idea ology’ line. Check out the Stamping Links in the side bar, for the link to Ranger.

Today I would like to share another picture of some grungeboard bracelets I’ve been making…still flat as I’m still waiting for my fasteners to arrive.

Welcome Back

Have you ever bought something because ‘everyone’ says its fantastic and then just put it in the cupboard because you just don’t know what to do with it? I’m not overly led by ‘the latest product’ but I was with Tim Holtz Grungeboard. I bought some when I saw it, and put it in the cupboard, I get it out, look at it, then put it away again bemused and bewildered. That was until I saw Sheena Douglass on Ideal World the other day, demonstrating how to make bracelets out of it.

 

Here  are some pictures of the first bracelet I’ve made so far. The holly themed one, was made along the lines of Sheena’s instructions the text background ones I put my own spin on the idea.

I have filmed a tutorial for You Tube, about how I created the purple one. As soon as I have the disk space available, I will edit and upload it. It will have to go in installments as it’s quite involved and the film got quite long!

 

Come back next Friday for a step by step tutorial on how to make a Garland using Grunge Paper.

 

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
