Use Paper Effects to embellish a scrapbook layout.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • palette knife
    • 1" foam brush
    • cardstock


    1. Lay your stencil in the desired location. Using a flat edged tool, scoop up some modeling paste. Holding the stencil in place, drag the tool and paste across the stencil. Once your desired amount of paste is on the cardstock, just set aside the paper and stencil still in place until the paste begins to dry.

    3. Once the modeling paste is nearly dry, you can start adding the Paper Effects. Pour some of the Paper Effects into a bowl like paint.

    5. Using a foam brush, brush on the Paper Effects over the stencil and modeling paste. You don't want the gold to cover like paint, you want to see nice long textured streaks.
