Below is an example of some of the fine art work I have done using FOILS.
It is difficult to find foils in beautiful colors such as these. Well it was difficult, until now that is. I am happy to say that these foils will be easily available to you through Creative Imaginations....read on.
As some of you know if you have taken any of my classes, read any of my articles in Somerset Studio, seen my fine art work and even my scrapbook paper lines......you know that I love my foils! The problem up until now has been that I didn't have a source for the crafter to buy these beautiful and unusual colors of foils for themselves. Unfortunately many of the foils on the market are not pretty...they are garish and just not right, often times they have some cheesy holographic pattern on them. I worked diligently with my art director to source GOOD colors and the right glue too. We are going to be debuting the new Foils under the BARE ELEMENTS (BE) line from Creative Imaginations and I cant wait to finally share some of my techniques with you now that I can actually recommend a source for this amazing product.....
There are three color palettes:
and we worked hard to develop just the right glue for you too!
Here is a sample of a tag that I put the glue on the edges, let it dry and burnished the foil on. The key to this new foil being the BEST foil available is the sophistication of the color palette and the way I will show you how to use it! Stay tuned to the blog for more fun techniques!
I will be posting and focusing a lot more on this product and techniques of how to use it as the product get closer to shipping. Make sure to ask you LSS to carry it. And if you have any questions or comments feel free to send them my way in the comment section.... I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!
And because I LOVE this product so much, I want to give some away. Send me a comment and after CHA I will pick a name out of a hat and send the lucky winner a sampling of the foil with some double-stick adhesive shapes....xo-Christine
