How To Use ExpandIt To Create A Beautiful Frost Effect

Hi all

I am up on the blog today with a mixed media art journal page.


To start off the page i glued fown some scraps of Lutradur which i heated up and distressed.
I Then used white gesso and once it was dry i sprayed the page with water. Next i sprinkled on Grey, Ost Blue and Aquamarine Brusho powders and then sprayed more water over the top. I used a paint brush to mix the colours but you can let them dry as they are if you want to keep the patches of colour.



I used blue mettalic Lustre over the top and then i started applying the Expandit paste using a spatular. I used a heat gun to fluff it all up and as it expands, it branches out like frost. To create the frosted look i used pearl metallic lustre and glitter glue.


I applied a stencil to the background and used metalic lustre to bring out the pattern. The words were created with alphabet stickers and i used a ruler to keep them straight.


Thank you for visiting
