Workshop Wednesday Transformation of Cardboard Folders

Image
This is my version of a makeover for Cardboard Folders for the office.  Start with plain folders. I found these at Kmart for $2 each. Bargain!
Glue some music paper or other collage paper to the front of folder,  I have used #Decopage Matte Medium Choose a stencil and apply design repeatedly over the front and side of folder using Gesso and a makeup sponge. The Gesso will act as a resist for our project. Choose another stencil and apply texture paste through stencil, leave to dry. I used a Stencil Girl floral mask on this folder. Next  choose at least three/four spray ink colours.  I have used a combination of Dylusion Sprays and Kaisercraft Sprays.
Keep spraying over your design in different colours, adding water with a spray bottle, allowing some colours to run into each other.  Keep the middle section fairly clear for where your inspirational words will be placed later on.
If you wish to lighten the intensity of the colours  just roll over your texture with a roll of paper towel. …
