BOOMARK, USING SERVIETTES


Here i have used serviettes and an image, i started off with paper out of an old hymn book that i got at an op shop for .20c i tore the flowers of a serviette and pasted them on with glue when you do this, you can see through the serviette ( also make sure you take of all the backing of the serviette, sometimes they come with two or three layers) then i adhered an image and used mod podge to paste over the image, and used some rub-ons to make the word diva, then using the Vaseline technique i placed Vaseline on the image and the bits i wanted to show up, then coat the whole peice with gold paint, allow to set for about half hour then i like to use a wet tissue and rub off the gold paint, where you have applied the Vaseline your paint wont stick so it wll stick to the parts where you didn't Vaseline. quick and easy old method where you can end up with a great effect. I have also used this technique with the altered book book and the love page which was using the same serviettes, so next time you are out shopping and see some interesting serviettes grab them they can go a long way.....
