50 Shades of Distress…(Well 64 to be Exact!) by Kassa Hayselsen

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen

Hi there everyone, uber excited to be back sharing more art using amazing stash with you all…
I looooves and adores color, so I often just get my paints out and ‘practice’ – the first part of today’s tutorial is just that, a cool way to fill a page with beautiful color whilst experimenting laying color down, whether it’s laying wet paint next to wet paint, wet paint over dry paint, similar colors together or opposites together, and not forgetting the Distress Splatter Brush fun! By the way, I have challenged myself to use the full range of Distress paints/reinkers on this piece but, like I said it’s a practice piece, an exercise in experimenting and having fun so you choose your colors and how many but I do like to throw in colors that I shy away from to stretch my capabilities…
As I take you through this easy to follow step-by-step tutorial, I share my tips and techniques of how I emulate ‘watercolor art’ using the amazing Distress Paints and Inks and I take the page further with a beautiful bee! _ whether you go with the bee too is up to you!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 1: Trim the watercolor paper to 8″x 8″ and stamp out on the smooth side of the paper the small patchwork pieces using the Hydrangea Ink, I only ink up the edges of the stamps giving a beautiful random edge to the patterns.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 2: I work 2 to 3 squares at a time but that’s not always the rule! I wet the area to be painted with clean water, then dab a little paint into it.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 3: Whilst the paint is still wet I add another color into it, with the wet on wet paint method I add similar colors together so that the paints mix they create a happy harmonious blend rather than creating mud. To add an opposite/complementary color I wait for the paint to dry (wet on dry method).

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 4: I’ve added a touch of red here, only a touch though because stronger colors will take over and swamp everything.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 5: I like to add the re-inkers cos the color is soooo intense, I use it at any stage, as the basecoat or like here mid-way through.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 6: If you need your colors to mix more simply add a couple of drops of clean water and let the water move your paints/inks.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 7: Here’s a mix of the greens/blues, the combinations are endless and sooo amazing.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 8: This one I’m sharing to show I even used my Distress Spray Stain – you can use any of the ‘Distress’ family products! And wow can you see how the tiny drop of the purple ‘Wilted Violet’ pops against the pinky hues!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 9: I’m quite happy for the paints/inks to spill out over the edges into the whitespace, splashing with clean water can help this to occur in a pleasing and easy way. 

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 10: When everything is dry, I love to add a little texture and pattern with my Distress Crayons and Mini Layering Stencils. Holding the stencil firmly in place I press the crayon firmly down over the stencil, scratching it up and down, this enables the crayon to be caught in the stencil holes.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 11: Still holding the stencil firmly down I then rub over the stencil which rubs the crayon through and onto the page, an easy and wowzer technique!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 12: Once I have added various shades of the crayons, I randomly doodle around some of the patchwork and crayon to emphasis them (the Fude Ball pen is so cool cos it loves to write over the crayons without clogging up!)  

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 13: So I have a little addiction to splats hahaha – Tim’s Splatter Brush is a dream for this or simply a brush but I prefer the random-ness of the splatter brush (and the fun eeeep!)

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 14: At this stage you can step back and call it finished, it is a standalone piece of art in itself or you can use it as a background too!!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 15: I used the smooth side up of watercolor paper to diecut the bee from. These dies and folders are so easy to use and the results are amazing. The texture is so deep!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 16: I wet the wings with water before adding various hues of paint.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 17: I add more and more thin layers of paints, whilst the wings are wet and also when dry.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 18: I did not wet the body and legs before painting. I add the color haphazardly so the lines remain soft.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 19: Gradually I add more and more layers a little at a time to give the bee depth, shading and highlight. The bee slowly comes to life!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 20: The bee’s wings look perfect with a flash of the shiny foil. Simply swipe the glue stick over the wings and press down the shiny foil (shiny side up), leave for a couple of minutes then carefully peel away to reveal the magical sparkle!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 21: Between the raised areas on the wings doodle in the “skeleton” lines of the wings with the Fude Ball pen.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 22: Add another layer to the wings with the Newsprint text stamp and Black Archival Ink.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 23: This next step is for the mini ‘honeycombs’ that the bee sits on. I spritz with water the leftover watercolor paper, then add dabs ‘n splats of paint. Spritz again if the paint isn’t merging.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 24: Whilst the paints are wet, pop the papers together and quickly peel apart to reveal an awesome background.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 25: And it’s more awesome with splats!!!

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 26: Once the “honeycomb” background is dry die cut with the Sizzix “Honeycomb” Frameworks die. I also stamped a few of the die cuts with the “Newsprint” stamp and black ink.

50 Shades of Distress by Kassa Hayselsen Step 27: For the final touches I sew round the edges of the multi-colored background, adhere the loose lengths of yellow/black cottons along with the bee and die-cut honeycombs. Then add a magical sparkle with three or four sprays of Mica spray. More splats and doodles of course and then cover your bee before spraying under him with the Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain. Hold the paper vertical so that the spray forms LUSH drips!

Imagine the Possibilities…Tim Holtz Colors with Distress on Real Wood Paper by Et Cetera (ETC) Papers

September 23rd, 2016

Coloring on unique surfaces can often pose a challenge and today we want to showcase two different types of Distress coloring techniques on two different types of Et Cetera Papers wood veneer. Wood veneer is made from real wood with a smooth porous finish. Available in various finishes, we wanted to share how you can achieve vibrant watercolor effects on both light and dark surfaces.

Products used: Distress Crayons, Distress Markers, Distress Ink, Distress Waterbrush/Detailer, Distress Archival Ink, Mini Ink Blending Tool, Craft Sheet, Foam Tape, Et Cetera Papers Birch & Cherry Wood Veneer, Idea-ology Textile Surfaces, Idea-ology Quote Bands, Stampers Anonymous CMS136 Mini Blueprints, Stampers Anonymous Grid-blocks, Cardstock, and Jute.

We are working with basic watercoloring supplies including Distress Markers, Distress Crayons, Detailer Distress Waterbrush, Craft Sheet, and of course Wood Veneer.

To get started, stamp the images directly on the wood veneer using Archival Ink. Since we are watercoloring the images it’s important to stamp in a permanent ink.

Birch Wood Card

This first card features a lighter Birch Wood Veneer so we can use translucent dyes like Distress Markers.

Since this surface is very porous coloring directly on the wood with the marker can cause the ink to absorb immediately making it difficult to blend. The solution is to scribble the markers directly on to the craft sheet and use it as your palette.

Pick up the color with a waterbrush and watercolor directly on to the wood veneer. This applies a light wash of color allowing you to control the intensity and blend.

Continue layering various colors using this technique to create a wash of color. The translucent dyes highlight the grain of the wood veneer. Once finished, allow to dry completely.

Ink the edges with Distress Ink using a Mini Ink Blending Tool to frame our colorful masterpiece.

Cherry Wood Card

This second card features a darker Cherry Wood Veneer so we need to use pigments like Distress Crayons.

Even though this surface is very porous, coloring directly on the wood with the crayon is not a problem. The pigment will not absorb into the surface right away so it will allow us to blend with water.

Using the waterbrush, blend the crayon directly on to the wood veneer. This applies a vibrant wash of color creating intensity on the darker wood background.

Continue layering various colors using this technique to create a mix of color. The opaque pigment tones down the grain of the wood veneer. Once finished, allow to dry completely.
