I love trying new techniques – especially unusual ones.

As I was looking through some of my paper crafting supplies, I picked up a bottle of dimensional glaze. If you have not used dimensional glaze before it’s an awesome product that can be used in many ways. I decided to try something new with it. I decided to try a resist technique to make fun centers for some ribbon flowers.

To do this easy technique:

1. Make random dots of dimensional glaze on glossy white cardstock. Let dry thoroughly.

2. Sponge dye ink over the dots, which acts as a resist and color the glossy cardstock. Use a circle punch to punch out circles.

3. Place loops of ribbon under the edge of each circle to create whimsical flowers.

These cute flowers could be used on many types of projects but I decided to place the flowers on a gift bag to give to a friend.

And speaking of friends… as you are aware, I’m one the Pros who will soon be leaving my official position with Paper Crafts to pursue some other interests. I consider all you my friends and will miss the continuous association I have with you and the magazine. I’m looking forward to all the fabulous projects and ideas from the new Go-to Gals!

I would love to hear how you have used dimensional glaze in your projects. Post your ideas and let’s inspire each other to try some dimensional techniques! I’ll pick three random people to receive a copy of Paper Crafts 101. This ultimate resource guide actually boasts 37 fun techniques! All comments must be received by midnight (MST) on Thursday, July 9.
