As filming tutorials go I am totally at the absolute beginner stage, but it is something I’ve been wanting to do more of for ages now. However, I keep putting it off because I want the films to be good, not just good Perfect! If you are going to do something do it well, right?
Yeah, well I think I’m changing that mindset as, let’s face it, my films will never be perfect particularly if I don’t actually make them! So here we go, I’m going to try and make more regular films, pop on over to my YouTube channel if you fancy subscribing!
My latest video update is showing how to Get The Faux Print Look.
I’ve taught variations of this faux print look with the guys at PaperArtsy at the Ally Pally show last weekend and at their Retailer Training day in March and as it went down quite well I thought I would turn it into a video for you all to enjoy too.
The technique itself is not particularly new but it’s all about the application of the technique to get this Faux print look.
It is really simple to do and all you need is a surface to work on, a plastic card, some paint and, if you like, some stamps too. I’ve been using various PaperArtsy stamps, including my own range, I’m working on some heavy weight smoothy cardstock and the Fresco Finish paints which dry super quick so are perfect for this technique.
The technique is based around the kind of look you get in screenprinting but without using a screen, so the best way to do it is with a plastic card like an old credit card, an old gift card or a PaperArtsy Splodger if you have one.
I run through the whole technique in the video with tips and trick too, but feel free to ask me any questions, here, on social media or in my YouTube Channel.
Here are some peeks at some other samples using this technique.
There are more examples at the end of the video. The sample that I walk you through is this one:
Hope you enjoy playing with this one and as always let me know what you think and link up any projects that you do so that I can take a peek! If you want some more inspiration on what you can use this technique for then pop on over to Jo Firth-Young’s (aka JOFY) to see the amazing greeting cards she has made with it.
