EASY Resist Colorist Card From Sara Naumann!


I know many of you here in the US were not able to catch Sara’s appearance on the UK’s Create & Craft channel. I wasn’t either šŸ™ .

But look what I found! Or rather, what found me! I bumped into Paulette yesterday, and in her hand was one of Sara’s cards shown on Create & Craft!Ā  So we quickly had it photo-ed just so I could share it with you!




I also got the scoop on how you can create this same look! Are you ready? Okay then, get out your favorite white crayon! That’s right.

Sara scribbled a humble white crayon over the flowers on her Colorist page to create the resist! She then dabbed some Distress Ink onto her craft sheet, spritzed it with a bit of water, and brayered it onto her pageā€”simple as that! She matted her Colorist piece with Iris suede paper. This is a beautiful look that’s easy to replicate, and also easy to “riff on,” using different colors of inks, application methods and so on. Her Colorist sheet is from our Floral Garden for Colorists book.




And while you have your brayer out, check out Sara’s Mixed Media Made Easy Computer DVD! Sara shows how to create endless mixed media effects using tons of different mediums you probably already haveā€”embossing pastes, GelatosĀ®, Perfect Pearlsā„¢, Distress inks, Spectrum Noirā„¢ and lots more! It’s like taking a Mixed Media class with Sara at home, and it’s perfect for anyone ready to dive in and start creating! You can click on Sara’s Mixed Media Made Easy Computer DVD to learn more.

    I have these four books and like them a lot. I am going to try and use her method of coloring on one of the pictures. I like the blues on her card.

    If you do not have this DVD, you definitely should buy it. I have purchased all of the CD & DVD’s that PW has sold or is selling. This is my very favorite DVD out of all of them. I was surprised how I already had about 75% of the supplies she used and the other 25% were odds and ends that I had laying around the house, LOL I have watched this DVD so many times and many times, I just went back to watch a particular technique. It is worth every penny and more, you won’t regret buying it, I guarantee.
