Instructions

 

Hello there creative friends! I am happy to be back today to share a project that I created with the brand new colors of Distress Embossing Glazes. I am absolutely loving these bright colors. So happy to have Candied Apple, Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet now in glaze form!  

I created a fun tag today using all the colors of the glazes, Distress Mixed Media Heavystock Tags, Crackle Texture Paste and a stencil. There are so many uses for these tags…in your art journal, on a card, or even to tie to a gift (like a bottle of something fun). Today I am going to show you a technique that I love to do with these glazes where you add them over wet texture paste and sprinkle them on, almost like painting with the glazes.  

Tim Holtz Distress Glaze Painted Tag Step 1

Step 1: Gather up your supplies. You will need your Distress Embossing Glazes, a tag, some Distress Crackle Texture Paste, a palette knife, stencil and a scrap piece of paper to make it easy.

Step 4: Select one color of the Distress Embossing Glaze, I started with the Mowed Lawn took a tiny pinch of it and sprinkled it over all the leaves, it won’t be perfect, but that just adds to the Distress look.
