Distress Crayon Smudge Technique!

Hi crafty friends! Karla here with a quick technique I recently put on my Instagram - the Distress Crayon Smudge Technique, taught by Tim Holtz in his Creative Chemistry 103 class! It is such a fun and pretty technique that I wanted to share it with you here.

You first start by adding texture paste to a manila tag through a stencil. Here, I used Heidi Swapp and Dylusions stencils.

After the texture paste is dry, you coat the whole tag with Collage Medium and let it dry.

Your last step is applying the Distress Crayons directly over the paste and smudging it in with your fingers, which allows the crayons to blend and highlight the stenciled areas - so pretty!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a wonderful summer, and would love to hear how you're using the Distress Crayons!
