For the Materials on the Image Transferring Technique which was a fail lol!

4.) Cardstock design of your choice: Recollections English Rose Garden

5.) Modpodge from the Dollar store

After the image transferring technique:

6.) Stencils: These are great investment materials to build texture and details on your projects. Couple this with your favorite molding paste and boom! More dimensions.

a.) Arrows & Feathers Adhesive Flex Stencil By Craft Smart®.

b.) Stencil: FolkArt® Layering Stencils, Butterfly

7.) Gel Medium: Another important mixed media material for building your static backgrounds. Gel mediums usually last longer and are great investment pieces as well. They come in different types of textures. My personal favorite is the crackle paste which I will be purchasing once the current gel medium that I use is finished.

a.) Liquitex® Flexible Modeling Paste

b.) Liquitex® Gloss Heavy Gel Medium https://goo.gl/iMQ74R

A type of gel medium used for adhering 3D embellishments. It is way different from your typical school glue. This brand and type specifically dries slower. That means that you can move your embellishment around and don’t have to worry about drying time. This is perfect for the person, like me who loves to compose the design as you go. Another good thing with this is it can be used as a finishing varnish. This particular type has gloss effect after completely drying leaving the brush strokes on the finish product.

8.) Vintage Themed cardstock suggestions:

9.) Embellishments, starting with the Prima Marketing IOD Moulds.

Prima IOD Moulds in my opinion are also great investment pieces for making vintage-inspired embellishments. I would definitely buy more styles in the future. The IOD Moulds can also be used for food and it is oven safe.
