Studio DaphNat #6 - Layered Masking Tape Technique

We just can't get enough of Claudine Hellmuth's books; this time we tried another one of her techniques. And again it is simple to do, you do not need a lot of supplies and the results just rule!!

What you need this week:
Masking Tape
Acrylic Paint (1 or 2 or 3 colours; experiment!)
Gel Medium

How to do it:
Tear different sizes of masking tape and stick them on a piece of cardstock. Just keep layering pieces of tape on top of eachother until you like the structure of it.

The next step is to seal the masking tape with a layer of gel medium
Let it dry by air or use a heattool.

To finish your project add a layer of (thinned) paint and dabb it off with a paper napkin. Add a second layer of paint (this can be a different colour like I did here)and also dab it.
I used an oily baby wipe on the second layer of paint.






Since this is such an easy to do technique don't be afraid to experiment with multiple colours, adding paint with your fingers, use really thin paint...you name it! Just try it!
Have fun and don't forget to stop by at Nat's blog to see what she did with this technique :-)
