Celebrate with a spoon by Marie Johansson

by admin

My projects today celebrate the birth of a new restaurant in our town. I am so excited that we finally get a modern bistro that offers healthy food and beverages instead of the normal pizza and burgers. I worked with the Flourish 19 Wing, the Birthday mini bulk pack and Best Wishes boxboard for this project.


The Spoon is an old one I bought on a garage sale. I covered it with crackle paste and High Impact paints from Tattered Angels. The Flourish and Best Wishes boxboard got a coat of paint too.


The tag is simply made with the same techniques and colors. High Impact paint and crackle paint as a base, then my home made rust paste (I mix Glimmer Mist, Clear Gesso and Texture powder to get a thick paste). The Birthday Chipboard was covered in heavy gesso and then High Impact paint. I love how the chipboard ” ate” some of the paint & gesso so the colors are uneven and make the chipboard look worn.


Details of how the “rust paste” make the flourish look like a piece of old metal. And as you can see – the effect of old, worn metal can be found on the Best Wishes chipboard too.



Don´t be afraid of “destroying” your chipboard pieces by adding texture paste, paint or embossing powder. I think the effect often makes the chipboard stand out become the focal point of the project.
