S is for Shaving Cream Technique

I am in a scrapbooking group called ScrapbookPlace. This month there is a contest where everyday a task is listed and if you complete the task, and upload a photo of it you can earn points. One of the tasks was to create a title using shaving cream, plastic and metal. I created the above title using the shaving cream technique. It is a LOT of FUN so I thought I would share it with you for my Tuesday Technique (although it is really Thursday). This is how you do the Shaving Cream Technique...

Materials Needed:
Shaving Cream (not gel)
cookie sheet or shallow pan
Reinkers (2-3 work best)
Glossy Paper (cardstock works too, but glossy paper turns out more vibrant)

1.) Squirt the shaving cream all over your cookie sheet (or shallow pan)

2.) Spread the shaving cream evenly over your cookie sheet (or pan)

3.) Drop the reinkers all over the shaving cream.

4.) Use the spatula to spread the reinkers over the shaving cream. Swipe it up and down the length of the cookie sheet (or pan), swirling the colors together.

5.) Place your paper over the swirly shaving cream and carefully pat it down into the shaving cream.

6.) Lift your paper off of the shaving cream.

7.) Use the spatula to scrape the shaving cream off of the paper. It will leave a swirly image created from the colored shaving cream.

8.) Let your paper dry and then use it to create a layout, card, tag or title! Have fun and be creative! This is a GREAT project for kids too and it makes your kitchen smell FRESH!

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this technique; if you have tried it before; or just that you stopped by. I love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by and come back soon! Have a scrappy day! Shellie
