Hello everyone! I’m Eva Pizarro and today I want to show you how you can dye your wood veneer shapes to use on your next projects.
I love wood shapes because they add a homey feel to my layouts and mini albums. The original color is great but why not change and customize it with your tools?
For this quick tutorial I am using 3 different supplies: watercolors, mists, and pigment ink.
To dye with watercolors, put a big drop of water on your color and then paint your wood veneer. The brush must be really wet otherwise your paint will leave a saturated spot on your wood veneer.
To dye with your mist, just put one or two drops directly on your shape and quickly spread it with a brush.
To use your inks, just rub the brush directly over your shape.
And here are the different results!
I used these shapes to make a layout. Here in Chile we celebrate our national holiday the 18th of September. It is a big celebration, and as a family we always make a traditional latin dish called “empanadas.” I used to make them with my dad, who passed away a few years ago. Every time I make these I remember him.
I put my wood veneers in a little cluster with the “thinking of you” tag.
I also used some of the dimensional stickers that you find in this collection.
For my title I used the Thickers from the Cottage Living collection.
And behind the photo, I included a recipe card with the recipe hoping that someday my son will continue this tradition.
Have a great day everyone!
