Bloggers Challenge...TJ Blogstravganza...Nesties Faux Rim Mini Tutorial

WHEW....There's a lot going on in this post today. Rather than creating three separate posts, I've combined them all into one! Today's Bloggers Challenge is a Color Challenge (one of my personal favorite color combos at the moment) Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Vanilla (or white). Keeping with the monthly postings for the TJ Blogstravaganza - I've used the TJ Marker Watercoloring Technique, and combined it with my version of the TJ Faux Rim Shaker Technique.


Finished size - 5-1/4" x 5-1/4"





First I wheeled my Christmas Chatter in Chocolate Chip ink onto my Baja Breeze card stock, placed this panel on top of my Chocolate Chip panel being careful to keep my 1/4" border then cut my circle with my Nesties. Edge Baja Breeze with sponge dauber and Chocolate Chip ink, set aside.




To create my rim piece - I used my Large & Small Circle Nesties. I placed the smaller circle inside the larger circle and placed them on my clear plate like this.




Then placed my scrap piece of Chocolate Chip card stock over the Nesties, added my cutting plate and cut, leaving me with a Chocolate Chip piece with a circle cut out, the cut out circle and my rim piece.



In this photo you can see I placed my rim piece over the opening in my Baja Breeze panel.












I adhered the rim piece with my glue pen to my Baja Breeze card stock that I had previously wheeled with the Christmas Chatter Wheel. Adhere this panel to your Chocolate Chip panel. Place a piece of acetate onto the chocolate chip panel, set aside. Cut a piece of Vanilla card stock the same size as your Chocolate Chip panel. Stamp your image onto Watercolor paper, cut out, and color. Adhere to a Chocolate Chip circle panel, then to a Baja Breeze piece that was cut using the Snowflake #2 Die. Place this in the center of your Vanilla panel - lay your Chocolate/Baja panel over the top to make sure your image is centered, if so, lift up and tack down. Flip over your Chocolate/Baja panel, add your Double Stick Foam tape, insert your micro beads, lay Vanilla panel over this panel, being careful to match up the edges. Adhere to Baja Breeze base card.


Here's a close up --------->
notice when tilted the micro beads fill in the open space of the Snowflake Die.
