Today I would like to share with you a tutorial that I have put together on how you can alter your FWAB products to suit your project.
As much as I love the FWAB products just as they are, occasionally I don’t have the colour I am looking for or need to tone down or brighten the products I have.
I have a few different ways to show you on how you can alter your FWAB goodies.
Make yourself a cuppa, get comfortable and I hope that you can get some inspiration on how you can make the most of your FWAB products and how you can change the look of the below products.
Gesso. has become one of my most used products in my scrap room. It creates fabulous texture and a base coat on your projects. With the FWAB Jessie Laser Flourish in Black, I have used white gesso and painted a script stamp and then stamped over the FWAB Jessie Laser Flourish in Black.
By using this technique you can change the look of your flourish as shown below.
You can also use rub-on/transfers to add a print or interest to your flourishes.
I have used the FWAB Luke Flourish in Bronze , and placed the rub on randomly over the flourish. Run the pop stick around the edge of the flourish it will neaten the edges and remove any over hanging rub- on that has transferred.
Then stick your flourishes on your project.
Now it is time to add some flowers and other embellishments to your project.
I have chosen to use the FWAB Maddison Flower in Black. As I don’t want my flower to be a solid colour, I will mist spray the FWAB Maddison Flower in Black in white.
Spray your flower lightly and leave to dry for a few minutes before adding to your project.
Another way to add colour or tone down the colour of your FWAB Flowers is to add a dab/touch
of white Gesso as shown below.
I love the FWAB Outdoor Range. They add fantastic features to your clusters on your projects. To tie in with my layout I need to tone down the brightness of the FWAB Taylah’s Toadstools. To do this I have used a distress white paint and lightly dabbed over, then used a baby wipe to wipe away excess and leave a white wash look.
I wanted to add some, green leaves amongst my flower cluster , but the FWAB Jack Vine in Green was also too bright.
Firstly paint the entire FWAB Jack Vine in Green, in white Gesso paint and leave to dry.
Once dry paint over with a distress paint of your colour choice.
You can also achieve a more distressed look by adding a little pressure from the paint dabber in random areas and swiping the dabber to let the original colour of the FWAB Jack Vine in Green shine through.
Once again I have used a script stamp, with a black in and stamped over the FWAB Jack Vine in Green.
Don’t be afraid to cut the FWAB Jack Vine in Green or any other Flourish With a Bling products to make them work with your project.
Once you are happy with your FWAB Goodies, and they are dry you can then add them to your project.
As you can see from my below layout, you can add lots of texture and change the entire look of your FWAB Goodies, to suit any of your projects. Don’t be afraid to have a play.If you are anything like me, you will have a stash of embellishments that just might not be exactly what you are looking for, but think about what you might be able to do to them to suit your project.
