2018 #14: Tea Time with ESC {by Etsuko Noguchi}

2018 Topic 13: Baked Texture

The glint of embossing powder is often what gets us hooked on crafting, but these are a very different animal! Seth Apter's Baked textures are a new toy for Etsuko, and she puts several through their paces in this post! ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, It's Etsuko/ My favorite things with you today, and I'd like to share with you my 'Tea time panel'. Ever since Seth APter announced his powders, I wanted to use Baked Textures to create grunge techniques. Previous embossing powders I have used are quite flat in comparison so I didn't use them much for mixed media. The 'Baked Texture' powders melt into the surroundings and create an interesting texture so it is a lot of fun. I have not done a lot of experiments yet, but please enjoy what I created.

First I decided to make a little panel with Raquel's new stamps and stencils. In the background I made pieces using Baked Textures and collaged it. the photo frame and teacup are focal points.

What looks black is 'Rocky Road', it is transparent, uneven and very glossy. The dark black tape on the right I used Dirty Sand and on the brown paper below it is Ancient Amber Baked Textures. These stamps are from Seth's set ESA09.

I made a Baked Texture Skins, Although his skin was very smooth, mine had many holes!!

The photo frame I used Raquel's PS106 stencil with Ancient Amber Baked Textures.

When it cooled down I used 'Vintage Beeswax' once on it. And finally I used Rocky Road at the edge.

Finally I put the Gorgeous Raquel teacup ESC15 on the photo frame.

I tried to use Baked Texture but I could not make delicate lines and when I used Vintage Beeswax on the top it got blurred.---That was my choice wrong!! I used Twilight Fresco on the base and stamped by some gold and clear embossing powder.

I was a lot of fun to play with beautiful Raquel Tea Time series and Seth's Baked Textures that can make variety of works. The Baked Textures has a lot of possibilities and interesting to devise it. Please everybody try to this challenge, I will looking forward to seeing them!!!! 

Thank you so much stopping by!!

Much love.
