First up is this layout I created using a piece of cardstock. I 'moulded' it to shape like a frame. Yes......... WATER + paper is so much fun! I soaked the entire cardstock in water and then dry it a bit. While it is damp, I put a acrylic block 5x7' and mould it around this block, to form the frame. Next I ink it, distress the edges, splatter some paints and glitter. This is a FUNNNNNN........ FUN technique. Try it!
A fun way to play with it is sanding. But I want to share another way: the breaking down of the layers of fibers of the cardstock. First, wet the tip of the paper. Slowly separate the layers of fibers. I called this "paper wetting techniques" I taught this in my classes many times and people are always amazed!!! You will be able to peel off a bit.... leave it there to show the contrast of shades (pink in this card) Have fun! Paper + water may not be a disaster after all
