Fun Fortnight playing with PaperArtsy Infusions powders...
I have always enjoyed playing with other pigment powders
but I wanted to try The Infusions.
I bought a few and have had so much fun trying them out.
I was inspired right from the start, from the first post with
Shari Caroll using glazing mediums.
I will show you some of my efforts first.....
I used the Flower Head stencil, with the infusions powders,
that where activated using clear gel.
Once the gel was dry I used different colours of Infusions,
with lots of water for the background.
Gel was also used, in places through a circle stencil.
I added some micro beads and more infusions which produced some fun results
as the colour seeped through the beads.
I used the circle stencil and clear gel again in some places to act as a resist.
I loved how the powders gathered around some of the edges.
I used acrylic paints and infusions for the flower heads.
Using much less water to activate the infusions gave a very different look.
Clear gel again through the flower head stencil, micro beads
and then painted over with acrylic snowflake paint,
which gave a fun and different look to them.
With the stencil kept on, I activated the powders with water..

Using the stencil I flipped it over to achieve the result on the left.
The photo on the right....Powder over the stencil, take it off and then lightly spray with water.
The photo on the left....Use Versamark to stamp the image, dust with the powders
and then lightly spray with water.

I have used the infusions through the stencil on the photo on the left,
which was then activated with clear gel, which also seals in the powders.
After it dries sprinkle the infusions on the background and activate with water.
Swatches showing some of the gorgeous Infusions.
You get different results with different card,
varying amounts of water, gel and glazes.
I wondered if I needed anymore pigment powders and I have concluded I do!!!
The infusions are different in that the walnut in them re-acts so differently
every time and you can have so many creative,
often surprising and fabulous results....
Such fun colours and an explosion of colour before your very eyes.
I have had lots of fun and learnt lots along the way.
I am going to do more layouts and pop them all into one book.
Thank you for stopping by.
