Websters Pages NEW Circle Stickers! Plus a NEW Homemade Texture Paste Recipe!!

 
One of the fun new extra's that Webster's Pages made for their more recent collections is the new circle stickers!  I used one of the larger blue stickers for my layout.
I wanted to create a more 3D frame with the sticker so I wrapped some twine around the circle sticker (to resemble a vine design) and then applied the circle with adhesive foam pop dots.  I added a few small Dusty Attic white roses and some cardstock leaves to complete the look. (The chain link fence design is from Dusty Attic)
Here is another view of the circle design. 
 
I had so much fun with this page I thought I'd try another design using the smaller pink floral circle. (Below)
I mounted this circle sticker on one of the green patterned papers in the New Beginnings collection and trimmed around the edges with a scallop edge scissor.  I added a small white dot in the center of each scallop using a white gel pen (Signo Unibal, and Inksenntials are both good white gel pens I use). 
I embellished this one with some of my favourite Pink Bloomers from Websters Pages as well as one of the new Perfect Accents Birds in a nest designs. 
I love the new Butterfly cameo's and the colorful variety of frames you can now get from Websters Pages!  Here I added a little handstiched design with the cameo pieces. 
Before I finish today I wanted to share something really cool with all of you!  Remember a while back I did a little tutorial on how to make your own texture paste?  I used a combination of Baking Soda, White Glue, and White Craft Paint?  This created a nice rough texture paste....but I mentioned that I had also read about people using talcum powder instead of baking soda.  I thought for this layout I would try out using the talcum powder for a smoother texture paste.  IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY!!  It really allows nicely for finer detailing in a mask.  I cut the recipe in half and stored it in an airtight container.  The mixture came out so smooth and nice and really held up well, no chipping, just a nice firm finish!  Here is the recipe...
 
Homemade Smooth Texture Paste
1/4 cup Talcum Powder (I used Johnsons Baby Powder, Make it smell good too!!)
1 tablespoon White All purpose School Glue
1 tablespoon White Craft Paint
Some Water
 
I began by mixing all the above ingredients with a bit of water until I had the consistency I was looking for.  I tested the texure by letting the medium drop from my stir stick.  If it flattened out quickly into the rest of the mixture, I added too much water.  I fixed this by adding more of the talcum powder until I felt the texture would hold nicely when applied to a mask.  Personally, I like the talcum powder version better than the baking soda!  Just use an old credit card to apply the mixture to your mask....you'll love the results!
