a-z of me ... shaving foam technique

i have been very naughty and been neglecting to update my blog

i recently joined in with the "an a-z of me" journal prompt challenges with @bernice hopper and i have
throughly enjoyed learning new art journaling techniques

this one was particularly fun but very messy ....


STEP 1) bought a cheap tin of shaving foam and squirted it into a small tray

STEP TWO)  i then splodged some acrylic paints onto the shaving foam

STEP THREE) using a barbeque skewer i dragged the paint into lines and swirls, then placed a piece of
of card on top

STEP FOUR) this is how it looked when the first one came out of the tray before wiping away the excess foam

STEP FIVE) the photos a little blurry, but i was thrilled with how this technique turned out and so as not to waste the paint or foam i got a little carried away .....


  1. Looks like you had tons of fun! Always a bonus when our art work is fun too.

  2. I haven't tried this technique before, but it certain;ly looks like fun!!

  3. I've tried this and loved it, looks like you've had great fun x

  4. This looks like it could be great fun hun.

  5. Thank you for the tut, looks like you had a lot of fun with these. Chris xx

  6. thankyou very much for popping into my blog and leaving me your lovely comments :) i had too much fun with this technique but as you can see from the photos it was well worth getting messy :)

  7. It is a great technique, must try it, Sue Wilson (Spellbinders), has done it on tv this week too

  8. girls go for it, but be warned you will need plenty of card and paper towels nearby to wipe hands inbetween dips. forgot to say you will also need something to scrape the excess shaving foam off your peices of card, something like the ice scraper for the freezer would be good. i found that if i went the oposite way to how the paint lines were i kept more of the marbled design :)

  9. How fun! I haven't used this technique, yet!

  10. Hi, please go and look on my blog I have left something for you, paula x
