You know how we love our Try Day Friday series! Each Friday afternoon on our Facebook page, our concept designer Shannon Smith shares a new technique with you LIVE. Isn’t that so fun? This week Shannon is trying something new even for her! If you saw the video tutorial, we think that you’re probably wondering what items you can heat emboss. If you’d like to watch on our YouTube channel, you can see the video right here. Make sure you leave Shannon a comment and let her know how much you enjoyed her projects and appreciate her sharing a fun project with all of us.
Isn’t that so cool?! I mean, wreaths taken to the next level! We just love the variety of the printed paper on the background, it’s the perfect accent for the embellished wreaths. Now, did you get a good look at those wreaths? Did you notice the fun flocked effect? Do you know how Shannon created that look? Let’s take a closer look.
The Spruced Up wreaths come in a package of 6, so you can use one or all of them! Our framed decoration uses three, each with a different color of “flock”. The first step is to “paint” our Clear Pigment Re-Inker onto the wreath using a paint brush.
We set the wreath on top of our Media Tray to make it so simple to clean up the excess embossing powder. We started with the Rose Gold Embossing Powder and since the Clear Pigment Re-Inker is on the wreath already, we simply sprinkle the Embossing Powder on the wreath.
Now, here’s where the magic comes in! Turn on the Journey Heat Gun and heat that beautiful powder. Once you’ve finished with the rose gold, you can finish the other two wreaths with the White and Copper Embossing Powders.
You know that’s not where this ends, it’s just where we’re getting started! We love the idea of adding all of the embellishments on the wreaths – you just pick the ones that are right for you! Are you as inspired by this gorgeous piece of decor as we are? Thinking about creating something of your own? Why not check out Shannon’s ideas here in the video to get your creativity flowing?
