This month I’ll be featuring new Thermoweb Decofoil techniques and tutorials on how to create unique foiled effects on paper. Today I’m sharing the first tutorial. You’ll learn in a few quick steps how to create unique distressed backgrounds using foil. The result is almost as if you would have painted, splattered and splashed your paper with paint only with a much more beautiful texture, foil.
Thermoweb | Decofoil Transfer Sheets in Gold and Silver, Decofoil Adhesive Pen
Minc Mini machine (or a Foil Laminator)*
3M Spray Adhesive (also suggest Decofoil Fusible Spray Adhesive)
Digital Stamps | Graciellie Design Thoughtful Greetings set
Dies | Spellbinders: Arched Elegance Pocket, A2 Matting Basics
Coloring | Spectrum Noir Markers: CG1, CG2, FS3, TN2, GB8
Miscelaneous | Papers: Vintage handwriting patterned paper, White and Black cardstock / Tools: Printer, scissors, paper trimmer / Embellishments: Crinkle ribbon, silver heart button, gauze
*Not strictly necessary.
This technique is super easy to achieve and it creates unique backgrounds every time. You can get a lot of backgrounds from 1 single foil transfer sheet and you really don’t need that much adhesive, so this DIY is very affordable too! Make sure you visit Thermoweb’s shop to check out their Decofoil line of adhesives and transfer sheets.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you found this tutorial useful please let me know in the comments. I will be back soon with a second technique using Decofoil, so stay tuned!
