Scrap It Girl Friday Favorite!

Hi there crafty peeps!
Rachelle here sharing my weekly Friday Favorite project for

This week's favorite is a fall project I enjoyed creating.
Here is a look:
I really had fun working with these wooden leaves and canvas.
I used gold beads, light acrylic paint, and flocking.

I created the background using my burlap stencil by Tim Holtz Collection
using homemade texture paste.
Here is the receipe courteous of my fave design artist Gabrielle Pollacco.
  It's a really easy recipe, quick to make and super inexpensive! 
Just like the store version.

1/2 cup Baking Soda or Talcum Powder
2 Tablespoons white school glue
1-2 Tablespoons White Acrylic Paint
(some water may be necessary)

I took an air tight container and put in my baking soda.  I then added the glue, acrylic paint and started mixing. I just mixed to get a smooth consistency, I added a few drops of water to get it to the consistency I wanted.  There are many types of texture mediums in the store, from light to heavy, so the amount of water you add will depend on the heaviness of the texture you are looking for.  Done!
(The mixture keeps well in the air tight container, I just checked it and it's still perfectly usable....some of the moisture was floating on top, I just gave it a stir and it was good to go!)

Gabi said she now uses talcum powder and it works well. I like using the baking soda.

Well that's it for now gang!
