Art Journaling with Shari Carroll: Foiling with Transfer Paste

Welcome everyone and happy Sunday!! 

I’ve been playing in my small Dylusions flip journal trying out some foiling. I used the DecoFoil Transfer paste with the Bouquet of Roses stencil. Once the paste was completely dry, I covered it with a beautiful champagne colored heat activated foil from Couture Creations

With the foil in place, I covered the page with parchment paper and ran it through the Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Applicator machine. The sheen is gorgeous sitting alongside the copper foil from the decorative tape from Prima

To see how this all came together, check out the video below!! Enjoy!!

  1. Wow, an elaborate creation for sure. Hope to get back to view the video later in the day! Love the “who made me an adult” quote!

  2. Beautiful project! It looks very intricate. I’be never tried using foil. It gives projects a very polished look!

  3. I really need to try the Transfer Gel again & that stencil is on it’s way to my house! Thanks for the inspiration with your beautiful page!

  4. Oh Shari, this is amazing! Love the look that the Transfer Gel and foil achieve. Beautifully done, as always!

  5. This project is so pretty! Haven’t tried foiling yet but this really is inspirational. Great video and loved the music too. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I have the stuff to try this…but never had the nerve to do it. I just might try the foiling TODAY!! Thank you for sharing this! It is gorgeous!

  7. I love watching your Art Journal video’s you always have great ideas and the pages are stunning. Thank you so much for your awesome inspiration.

  8. So glad there was a video detailing the creation of this journal page. I don’t have all the equipment to make it, but that Go Press and Foil Machine is pretty impressive. Is Transfer Gel the same as Embossing Paste? I am always intrigued by how Mixed Media is created using materials you do not expect. Awesome piece!!

  9. This is so lovely! The foil and paste are new things to me so it was great to learn something different.

  10. Just beautiful! With a little gel, a little paper, some foil, tape, glue and some watercolor, (and lots of talent) there’s no end to what Shari can create.
