2019 #18 Shaving Foam: Decorative Baubles with ESN {by Miriam Grazier}

2019 Topic 18: Shaving Foam

Part 2 from Miriam with this post today, and Miriam has used the same method from some christmas baubles. ~Leandra

Hi everyone, it's Miriam with you again today, and I'd like to share with you a second project that I have created using the fabulous shaving foam technique.  This is a follow on from the project that I shared yesterday.

I had so much fun with this project, and my shaving foam still looked like it had loads of use left, and so I decided to create some Christmas baubles using this technique which will compliment the calendar that I shared yesterday.

Here are my baubles.

I used the same technique for these baubles as I did for the countdown calendar I shared with you yesterday. The paints are all new colours to PaperArtsy...

I have used the new Sara Naumann stamps for my baubles.  I simply love these collaged stamps - they are elegant and detailed and can be used in clean cards as well as grungy cards.

I made sure that I decorated the back of the baubles, and even coloured the ribbon using complimenting paint.

I stepped up my confidence in this project though.  After scraping the excess foam off the bauble substrates I dipped the baubles in again to add more pattern.  I loved doing this. 

I love the contrast of the silver embossing on the Blue Fresco paints.

For what I would consider a fairly 'clean' look,  I love the depth and detail that this technique creates. And further more, no two 'pulls' of the foam are the same.

Sara's stamps compliment this technique so well.  I could not get enough of this release.  


I have so many more ideas for the shaving foam technique.  And every time I use it I think of different ways to adapt it.  I really hope that I have inspired you to have a go of this technique.  It is so much fun and I hope that I have proved that you don't have to be 'messy'!

Thanks for joining me this evening.  I hope you enjoy the rest of the projects and inspiration.

Do pop over to my blog to have a closer look at these baubles.

Happy crafting!
