Tutorial - Mixed Media with Prima Chalk Edgers

Hello Beautiful Crafters,
Today, I am here with Product Inspiration.
I have created a Mixed Media Canvas with New Prima Chalk Edgers (CE).

Prima has brought 2 types of Chalk edgers - Fluid (light blue cap)and Resist (grey cap)
Fluid are water soluble and Resist are archival inks

Let see the pictorial tutorial of my Mixed Media..

My chipboard base and embellishments are pre- gessoed.

I stamped the scrip background randomly on the surface with 'Farmer Jeans' CE

With Harlequin stencil and Knotted Wood CE I created one layer.
Next layer is added with Wendy's Embossing paste and Rhapsody stencil.

I  got 3-4 colors on the Acrylic block from Blue and Green CE. With my water brush I picked up the colors and applied on textured area.
Next step is to make embellishments. I stamped the flowers with 'Blossom Bud' Resist CE and colored them with 'Hydrangea ' CE and water. I fuzzy cut them, layered and distressed at the edges.
With same method I made my leaves.
Colored the Gate and Lamp post chipboard with 'Turquoise Stone' and 'Cold Ice' CE. To spread the color evenly I used baby wipe.
And when I put together all this, .....

So...you can do so many things with Chalk edgers.
1. Make background
2. Apply with stencils.
3. Use as watercolors.
4. Do stamping.
5.Color Chipboard embellishments.
6. Color wood Veeners
7. Use as embossing resist.
8. Distress edges.
9. Mix them with embossing paste to get colored texture.
10. Do multicolored stamping with Big stamps

And most important Chalk edgers are Ergonomic and  Economical.
