Hello, dear Creative friends! Irit is here again with my first January tutorial and this time I am going to show you how to use your " lost and not found" microbeads and micro glass beads over Creative Inspirations Paints with no glue for this nice and shiny effect.
This project was spotlighed in Create blog for Snow gallery on Feb. 8 th 2012
Product list: for the finished project
Creative Inspirations Paints:
Tando Creative chipboard shapes
Micro beads- gold and silver
And now to work:
I made a few samples with tag shaped bare chipboards to show you the options on bead coverage.
Sample 1: Cover the bare chipboard with white gesso and let it dry.
You can skip this step if you have white shapes. Add a lot of Creative Inspiration paint
Now sprinkle your colored microbeads over the wet paint. Don't wait too much as we want to adhere the beads without using any glue.Let it dry.
Sample 1- Gold micro beads
Sample 2: Cover another piece with CI Paints and add glass microbeads (those are a real smallest possible glass chips) over the wet paint. Let it dry.
Sample 3: Cover the gessoed shape with a lot!! of paint and add some seed beads. I used 3-4 colors for this sample and we need the thick paint layer as those beads are bigger.
And now for my finished project- I used 2 kinds of microbeads and glass beads.
The upper snowflake on this project was made with clear glass micro beads.
The middle one was made with gold micro beads.
The lower one was made with silver ones.
Don't use too much beads, as we want to see this gorgeous paint color over the shapes.
The lower basic shapes under the snowflakes on this project were covered with gesso and the same paint without beads as they were brown bare chipboards (snowflakes were white).
Now adhere the snowflakes as shown, add some blings and connect the ornament with ribbons.
I know, the tree is gone for now, but there is always the next year for this gorgeous ornament
