Just bumping this back up to the top post in my blog. 1 day to go till I draw a winner. Now to a treat for some one I hope. Luminarte Primary Elements Polished Pigments are highly pigmented powders with built in binders and shimmery mica, that can be mixed with Luminarte Simple Solutions or other art mediums or even with water to make your own shimmery sprays.
I had recently bought some Luminarte Primary Elements Polished Pigments from some one on Facebook. Prior to this I had owned mainly blues, greens and purples. I had no idea what colours were coming my way but when I got them I was totally blown away as there were yellows, oranges, pinks, more blues, greens and purples I didn't have and a black!!! Woot Woot was I happy and then some. So yesterday when I pulled my Polished Pigment stash out and organized the colours I had and the ones I had just bought I realized I had 8 colours that were identical.
So I would like to do a give away of the doubled up colours I have which are three shades of green, three shades of blue, a pink and a purple. You only need to add a tiny bit of powder to your medium of choice for a wow effect so they last for ages!!. As I have used some of my colours I had and the ones I have bought are second hand too I can't guarantee all these are totally full but they look close to full.
This is Lemondrop Yellow (not in the 8 to give away) that I have mixed with water...you can't see the shimmer in photos but it is there and you can see the intense colour effect you can get!! You can even mix colours to create custom colours.
I'll also throw in a doubled up plastic Kaiser mask/stencil I have..
AND I'll put in some simple solutions and the instruction sheet for the Luminarte Primary Elements Primary Pigments. I'll cover postage and I don't mind sending this little gift anywhere in the World :o). To be in the draw just link my blog to your Facebook page, Yahoo group or other group, your blog or whatever and leave a comment HERE with your name (I'll accept comments even if you can't share a link :o)). If you don't have a Google account and don't wish to create one just drop me an e-mail (address is at top right of my blog) with your name and "give away" in the subject line to go in the draw. After 2 weeks I'll use a random generator to pick a winner. :o).
So you can see the intense colours you can get I made a mixed media card using Luminarte Primary Elements Polished Pigments from the left over colours on my palette when I decorated my journal...
And the next two images are the journal covers I made in Finn's class but decorated at home using Polished Pigments...
Of course you can water the effect down so the colours are not as intense if you like. Again its a shame the camera can't pick up the glimmer and shimmer on the card and journal. See below this post for a how to make home made Christmas Baubles using the powders too :o)
I think I may have forgot to say why I do a Tuesday tip or technique...I was rearranging some draws to try to make more space and come across three draws of past paper crafting tips and techniques that I had collected over my paper crafting years but I had forgot about. I had also recently rejoined one of my paper crafting yahoo groups and thought I would randomly pick a tip or technique each week and share it on my blog and group. I guess at some stage I shall run out of tips and techniques but not for awhile yet LOL On all other days of the week I am usually playing with metal and making funky jewellery :o).
Good luck all.
