Playing with mediums

Hey, it's me again with a tutorial for you using products available at Scrapbook Divas.  I promised I'd showcase how I use my Derivan Gel Medium.
Here's my finished layout...

 I used a double masking technique on this layout, first making a triangle shape with some scrap paper, then applying the Gel Medium with an old credit card through a template.  I also used some texture paste to give a different textural finish, but you could use Derivan Impasto or Derivan Gesso in the same manner.

 Spray a variety of mists over your page (I still left my triangle masks on at this stage).  Michelle has a great range of Glimmer Mist available here.
 Attach triangles of paper and then trim any excess that is overlapping the edge of your base sheet.

Tim Holtz Distress Inks stay wet longer and blend beautifully.  I use either a dauber (as pictured) or a makeup sponge.
 I highlighted the raised edges of the texture paste with some ink.

 I even did my journalling!

 Look at all that gorgeous shimmer.

Hope you've enjoyed this tutorial.  Now get out there and have a play with some Mediums!
Happy scrapping,
