Fun Fall Project- Part 1

Good Afternoon Everybody!

I'm thinking Fall today! I may be dreaming of Fall today!  What is it 98 in Texas?  Hahahaha!  I love Fall, because the plants and flowers get a break from the harsh temperatures and everything starts to bloom it's last big show for the season.  It's also the beginning of the Holiday Season and let's face it, it's coming!

In the studio today, I have my normal 5 projects going on!  I'm inky and loving it!  One that I can share with you right now is a multi part post on a fun project I am doing actually as I write this...Hence the multi part.  LOL!

When I was watching Fiona (jennings644 on YouTube) do that cool technique with the molding paste and the striations in it, it got me thinking about other ways to use this awesome technique.

So here we go...

  • Heavy Cardstock
  • Molding Paste or as Margaret Ann Moffat and Fiona Jennings suggested...try making a paste from flour and water.
  • Inks- I used reinkers from Tim Holtz Distress Inks
  • Water Spritzer
  • UTEE-Ulra Thick Embossing Enamel
  • Any Type box
  • Paint fot he outside of the box

Here's the start of the video...

See you with Part 2 soon...

The Gentleman Crafter


  1. Gorgeous!!!.....moving to the next step.

  2. Wow, Jim that is a lot of work and time. I think I would just rub some glossy accents on them, if I give this a whirl. They look fabulous!

  3. Hi Jim, I just wanted to say thanks for sharing this step by step video with us. I was previously using my re-inkers to stain wood before the distress stains came out, but now only use them to re-ink my distress pads or to make my own sprays. I love this drop & spray technique & the variegated effects created. Moving on to part 2. Hugs, Theresa.

  4. Gorgeous. I never thought to apply the ink that way...I normally just puddle and drag from my sheet..Can't wait to try this!

  5. Totally COOL, but what I can't believe is that you are wearing that cheerful yellow and white shirt and not a drop of ink on ya! I would have been a MESS!

  6. The leaves look great. Love the colors you used!! Thanks for the video!!
