Micro Beads & Corrugated



I started playing with some pieces of corrugated, I cut the arches out with the TH die and painted them with lumiere paints. I randomly added glossy accents to some of the grooves and poured in the glass micro beads. I stamped the images onto separate card, cut them out and coloured them with portfolio pastels.


The arch has been cut from a piece running the opposite way.

Exactly the same for this one, except I painted the corrugated in pewter lumiere paints. Stamped the LP image and again coloured with portfolio pastels.  


I started off using the light blue beads but wasn't keen on the contrast, so for the main piece I switched to the darker ones.

Oh, Sam I love those - the micro beads are perfect - I have loads of them too somewhere and I've just had an idea that I must remember to try sometime!
