Default MIX436 Find Your Grove

Title: Find Your Groove
Hostess: Janelle S (a.k.a. Dizzymommie)
Keyword: MIX436Happy Mix-Ability day! Today get your favorite music going and let's all find our groove! Actually, music isn't part of the challenge, but you'll need a groove or two or more.

As always to keep true to mixed media, use at least two mediums for your project. A project can be anything, a card, scrapbook page, or 3D piece.

So here's our challenge: A pottery technique I've come across called Mashima is making a groove into the leather dry pottery and filling it with glaze or slip. We need two elements; something to make a groove and something to fill the groove.

Of course, we can't use glaze or slip on our paper projects so let's try embossing powder, enamel dots, or use your imagination for a different medium to inlay in the groove. For the groove let's use embossing folders, a crafting stylus, or a technique from the SCS tutorials called Debossed Die Resist, but use the side that has narrow grooves for this challenge.

Tips for using the debossed side of an embossing folder design
  • Try dabbing the thin-lined side of your embossing folder with embossing ink so afterward the powder will adhere better to the paper.
  • Using flat fingers to rub the embossing powder around worked best for me, but I also tried a plastic gift card. The latter tended to make sharp lines across the design so I went back to using my fingers.
  • Even after using embossing ink I still resorted to spreading the powder around with my fingers.
  • Resist the temptation to tap off excess powder. It will dislodge the powder from the grooves of the design.

When your project is complete upload it to your gallery. Remember to add the keyword "MIX436" (without the quotes) so we can see it in the challenge gallery!

Have fun and I can't wait to see what your imagination creates!

PS. If you are curious about the technique that inspired our challenge today read about the history and watch a video over on the Fireborn Studios website. It's an amazing view of ceramic masters creating works of art with both mashima and sgraffito (scratching away the layers of underglaze) techniques.

That was great fun and definitely something I will try again. I pulled out my old Fiskars Shape Boss for adding the grooves and used a fine needle-tip dispenser on my Liquid Pearls for filling the grooves.

Here's a photo of the background piece with the debossing.

I hope you can join in sometime!

Yes, I joined SCS after my second was born and taking care of two kids was so new to me I felt dizzy switching back and forth with the need for attention. LOL
