The more I work with Sticky Snippets™ the more potential I discover.
Color, cut, use. Think.
Color some more, cut up the shapes or use them as is, apply them to surfaces.
The more I play, the more the ideas come. Part of what I find so exciting about them is that almost limitless potential, where I can transform then into whatever a project needs. It also bears repeating (I said this in the first Sticky Snippets™ video) that half the fun is in creating them and the other half is working with them.
In today’s video I’m using sprays and watercolor powders to color the sheets. Along the way, I discovered that ink sprays provide a soft airy look if you apply them sparingly. Which is not to say that you can’t be generous and add a lot. You can and the look will change as you add more color, getting denser and covering all of the white space.
As you’ll see in the video, most sprays behave differently on Sticky Snippets™ than they do on watercolor paper or the types of paper you might use for a journal page. Why? Because Sticky Snippets™ are not “art” paper, so inks are going to absorb into the surface very quickly. That’s not a bad thing, just different than what you may be used to.
When you use the watercolor powders you’ll spritz them with water to activate the color. Bursts will form initially. Add more water and they’ll begin to blend together, creating a less busy look.
I have used a lot of water on my Sticky Snippets™ without affecting the adhesive. With that said, I either mop it up or get out the heat tool and dry the sheet right away. Don’t leave the water soaked into the paper for a long time as you may affect the adhesive.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you all create with your Sticky Snippets™, so please send photos of your work!
