You need a craft sheet, brayer, and acrylic paints, I used dabbers and took the lids off, squeezing the paint onto the mat.
So first you nee to squeezre some paint onto your mat - don't put too much on or you will have a really thick layer of paint, and it will take longer to dry.
stensils, sequin waste, stamps, bubble wrap - anything that will make an impression in the paint. Stamp into the paint, and brayer over masks so you get the pattern impressed into the paint.
You should end up with papers like this ...
I love these alterable files and thought I would se the paper to create a decopatch effect for my file.
Finally I decorated it ...
Weathered clock, butterflies and tattered flower out of grungepaper and stained it using dylusions crushed grape and fresh lime sprays. While it was drying, I spritzed the inks over the file to add another layer of colour. I also added some frantage to it. Once everything was dry I put the diecuts on using glossy accents and added pearls to the butterflies and a big button to the flower.
