DecoArt Media Misters /New Technique

Are you wondering how I got this cool marbling effect on this 5x7 canvas board???
Wonder no more!!
 You use SHAVING CREAM!!!!  That's right and you even get the cheap kind at the Dollar Tree!  I sprayed it into an empty meat tray (that's right-I recycle) Smooth it out a little with a palette knife.
 Then spray some paint randomly. I used Purple and Primary Cyan.  (I didn't know how the paints would respond since everyone I've seen do this technique uses inks-but it turned out great!!  DecoArt's misters have so much pigment they held up beautifully!!)

You can purchase DecoArt products -www.decoart.com

 Swirl it around with your palette knife. Press your paper or canvas on top!
 Pull it out and this is the results.  Use a flat ruler and scrap off the biggest part of the shaving cream & then take a paper towel & wipe off the remaining shaving cream.
I put it right back into my mixture and kept pulling papers thru until it was pretty grungy looking.
 These are the first pieces I did on white cardstock.
 These were scraps of cardstock. I'll use them another time for tags or cards.
 I used my main pieces to decorate this tissue box!  Cool huh??
I stenciled the letters on with DecoArt Whimsical Delight letters and Americana black acrylic paint.
 I painted the edges with Americana Eggplant multi-surface satin before gluing my papers on.  The box turned out nice.  Taking it to a craft show this weekend.  Someone will be winning a nice prize for registering.
 Here a couple of 5x7 canvas I laid into blue foam. Really turned out nice. Love the marbling.
Give it a go yourself!  Experiment with different colors.  You can also use inks.
