WOYWW = Wednesday 349

Good Morning to you all.

First I see I have had to sign in again to several of 
the blogs I follow. Sorry if you think I have stopped 
following you....its not me ...its Google !!!

So WOYWW today, at Stamping Ground - Wednesday 349....

yes its Wednesday already
where does the time go. 

Now over the last few days I have been playing with 
shaving foam. 

Its a bit messy, and great fun.

Just trying to sort out which background paper 
to use for the next Challenge from Clarity Stamp Calendar Challenge

Think I may have to try for something a bit more 
swirly.... however nothing is wasted. 

I  will show you a breakdown of the steps
for you to try. 

Any colours work - using the dropper Distress inks.
I gather you can use the Acrylic paints too...those that are in the little bottles.

I started using a baking tray with shaving foam

place card on shaving foam..

 Take paper out and then scrape off shaving foam

Results !!! 
And plenty of them. 

try on glass mat


making around 20 sheets before the shaving foam became a bit 

Then I thought wonder if I could use my glass mat and
get more "movement" on the papers. 


Will try that again maybe today. 

Do give it a go all you need is very cheap shaving foam
and distress inks. 

Well thats it for now 

Not sure I will get a card up loaded today
we will see...

Have a great day

  8. OMG this sounds like too much fun. I have to give this ago. Have you played with craft tissue paper and water? Basically cut up the craft tissue paper into shapes or strips or whatever, add water to card, canvas, whatever, add the strips, add more water, leave to dry - voila interesting papers, etc. It is lots of fun. Be sure to use cheap craft tissue, not wrapping tissue, that doesn't bleed. Cx #46

  9. Love using shaving foam. Still as exciting as the first time. There's always someone in my class who hasn't seen it before !! love it. Thanks for sharing. Sandra #66

  10. Hi Pen, I started okay this morning but got tied up with a difficult project so only just getting round to starting my visits. This is one of my favourite techniques, do show us how you use the finished results. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 26

  11. I love the shaving cream technique. Your lifts came out very pretty and ready for projects. Creative Dreams! ~Kelly #42

  12. Your results are fab, must give this a go with my granddaughter :-) Dawn #16

  13. It is ages since I did that technique, when there are so many fun things around that create lovely backgrounds like this I wonder why we all buy paper? Thanks for sharing and reminding me of a fun technique.
    Hugs & Thanks for the visit

  14. Looks like good fun :) Thanks for the visit yesterday - sorry I am so late getting round this week. Soojay xx

  15. It looks like messy fun! I have not tried this technique although I love the design it makes. Diane

  16. OOh it is great fun, huh. And the bonus of a stock of nice backing sheets too. Why we don't al do this regularly...I was going to say that its a mystery. But in my case its not, I just remembered how lazy I am!

  17. Interesting technique!
    I have to borrow my hubbies shaving foam.. LOL

    Lovely weekend to you!
