I love the muted tones the oxides produce....they are so different from distress inks and yet so similar too - very clever stuff I think!
Here's what I did to achieve this page....
My first move was to use my craft mat - I added dabs of four colours to the mat - cracked pistachio, fossilised amber, faded jeans and broken china, spittzed with water and then literally wiped the mat onto my journal pages. I repeated this until the pages were covered.
Next I mixed a dab of cracked pistachio distress oxide with wendy vecchi crackle paste and mixed thoroughly.
I used a clarity stencil and added the colured paste through.
Here's a close up that shows the dried crackle paste.
Next I stamped directly onto the page using indigoblu stamps and distress oxides.
here's what the page looked like.
Then I again added the distress oxides to a craft mat and used my waterbrush to pick up the colour and paint the images.
The last things I did was a little further stamping and adding the grass by painting with the water brush.
They really are a great product - I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I have used them - simple but fun and results different from distress inks.
