Default TLC234 - Leafing Pen Resist {8/17/09}

Hey gang...I have a fun technique that I'm sure you will all want to try. It's called Leafing Pen Resist and I first saw this technique on Carol Sweeney's blog, but she wanted me to let you all know that SHE learned about the Technique from Trish in the UK. As with any great technique, we love to share and make sure everyone sees it so they too can enjoy the flexibility of having the ability to create awesome background papers for your projects. Thanks Carol for sharing this fun technique with us.

The supplies that you will need for this technique are:

Watercolor Paper
Leafing Pen - (Krylon or similar in gold, copper, or silver)
Color Wash Inks - One color is good - two is better, three if you're brave, just try not to get too many colors going as you may end up with more of a muddy color than a vibrant look. If you don't have any Color Wash inks, make your own by adding a few drops of reinker into a misting bottle and fill with water until you have the desired intensity of shade. And for one more options, you can use watercolors and a big paint brush, and brush on your colors.
Paper towels (for blotting)
Wax Paper or Non-stick craft sheet (to protect your work surface)
Water (in a separate mister bottle)

1) Cut a piece of watercolor paper to the size you want. I used a 8.5 X 11" piece because if I was going to do this, I might as well make more than one. Using your leafing pen, draw a design - swirls, lines, dots, squiggles - whatever you want for your project - just let your creativity flow and the artist in you come out and play.

2) Placing your artwork on the wax paper/craft sheet, spray your color wash inks to cover all the white areas. If the color is too intense, just use the paper towels and blot what you don't like. Because you're using water color paper, you can always spritz more water on your paper to thin out the color if it's too bold. Experiment with blotting, and then adding another color. Although the instructions suggested spritzing water over the project to blend the colors, I didn't do that with mine - I just kept blotting and adding more color. As I said before...experiment and what which effect you like most for your particular project.

3) At this point, just let your paper dry. The leafing pen will resist the ink and you will have a beautiful design just waiting to be included in your next masterpiece.

This is how one of my finished sheets turned out:


I hope you will give this technique a try...it's fun, fast and easy. I like that, don't you?

If you would like to see what I've done with the technique, CLICK HERE or HERE.

To view the gallery of projects made with this technique, CLICK HERE. Don't forget to add the keyword TLC234 (no spaces) when you upload your card.

TOOLS YOU'LL NEED FOR NEXT WEEK'S TECHNIQUE: Brayer, Magic Mesh or Drywall Tape (found at any hardware store) and acrylic paint (or if you have Gesso around, that will work great as well)

Color Wash inks a products made by Ranger: http://www.rangerink.com/products/pr...kcolorwash.htm While they all match their line of inks, you can easily make your own (see post #1 for helpful suggestions). I have a few of the colors on hand, so that I why I used them. HTH

I loved this technique, Lynn. Doodling is not my forte, but I'll be practicing it so that I can try this more.

What a fun technique! LOVE your sample. Now if I can just get my leafing pens to work - I have more trouble with them clogging.

Great technique, Lynn. I'll have to see if I have any of the supplies.

Just an FYI ... the link referenced in your original post (what I put in hot pink above) has nothing linked to it.

Don't have the necessary ingredients to give this a try right now - but definitely on my "to try" list. Looks great! TFS!

Here are mine:

This would have been much easier if I actually owned a leafing pen, but I don't. I have leafing paint, but only used it on one card. The other two I used gold and silver acrylic paint for...similar effect without the smell.

Hi Lynn,

I made 2 panels and one I used whole.

Disco Dasher


Both of these turned out really bright and kind of wild so I cut the other one up and used it for this card for my friend's birthday.

Here's the other one:
