Mod Podge Resist background

I just got hold of some TA Glimmer Glaze, Glimmer Glam and  Chalkboard Glimmer Mist
and wanted to put them all into use at one go . ;)
So I turned to the Tattered Angels' educators'
 blog to experiment with some new ideas . 
 I tried a tutorial here by our very own Singaporean TA Educator, Jasmine Low .

The technique is called Multi Medium Resist -  you can see the full tutorial here .
I didn't have an artist multi medium on hand
so I simply used modge podge instead 
and a normal artist paint brush to paint on the modge podge
 all over a white cardstock background. 

Here are some of the colors I used on the background : 

Fall Glimmer mist colors  over the modge podged areas : 
Apple, Dragonfly & Sugar Maple. 
Tattered Leather & Apricot Chalkboard Glimmer Mist
 around the modge podged areas.
Splattered Glimmer Glaze in Emerald Cove & Penny Loafer .
Dirty Martini Glimmer Glam painted around the photo.

 another experiment with the new Apricot Chalkboard Glimmer Mist -
I sprayed the Apricot color on the paper towel 
and stamped unto the white cardstock background - 
I used a Glimmer Glaze bottle to press on the paper towel for 
the circular design .;) 
I'm not sure how this will be used yet 
but I do know we can make paper towel glimmer misted flowers .
Check out the tutorial by Liz Hicks here.
