I’ve got a fun technique with Haute Mess media! I created this sweet scrapbook page about my boys with lots of subtle blues and browns. The brick wall in the photo was my inspiration for the background of my page.
On white cardstock, I started by brushing Haute Mess paint in Dive Bar in a large area. Once that dried, I used a brick stencil to add Haute Mess White Gesso with a sponge applicator. It was applied pretty thick.
Once dry, I brushed on Haute Mess paint in Last Sin. Spritz with water and wipe away from the Gesso. The Gesso resists the paint for a subtle color wash. It gave the paper a patina with the light blue tone. I love the texture that the sponge gave the bricks.
Once I adhere all my papers, rub ons, embellishments and photo, I added some more texture with a stencil and the Haute Mess Molding Paste with a palette knife.
I love how the modeling paste kept it’s height and stays exactly as you put it down when dry! It’s smooth and creamy … just delish!
Using the Haute Mess media makes me so incredibly happy and I’m sure I will find more ways to use them on a variety of projects!
