3 Techniques with Perfect Pearls – Video Tutorial

I’m honored to be Guest Blogger over at Artists in Blogland, where once a month they feature Techniques on Tuesday.  Today I’m sharing a video with three techniques using Ranger’s Perfect Pearls.  One of the best parts of attending Ranger U was remembering why I bought all these cool products to begin with… there are so many things you can do with what you may already have in your stash!

Tim Holtz taught these techniques and I knew I wanted to experiment with them as soon as I got home. Perfect Pearls come in both powder and mist form, and I’ve used them to demonstrate Misting, Dusting, and Faux Suede.

Here ‘s a photo of the finished ATCs (the video needed tweaking a few times so I ended up with multiples):


These products are incredibly versatile, and I encourage you to give them a try.  They look great in ‘whole’ form as shown above, and are also wonderful when diecut, punched, torn, etc.

Hope you enjoyed the video, and that you’ll subscribe to my Youtube channel as I intend to do quite a few more of these short tutorials.  Be sure to check out Artists in Blogland, too, where they have lots of inspiration and monthly challenges.

Thanks so much for the visit!


Supplies used:  Perfect Pearls, Perfect Pearls Mists, Perfect Medium, Ink Refresher, Water, Heat-it Tool, Sizzix ATC die and Rays Texture Fade

    Love the tutorial – gotta try some of this; really learned something too – did not understand that the big brush was for pouncing!

  8. Great tutorial Marjie. It never fails to amaze me how some of these techniques can be forgotten as we all get more technical. Hugs, Jenny x

  9. Great video Marjie! Faux Suede is my favorite!

  10. Awesome tutorials Marjie. Reminds me of my Ranger U days. 🙂 You did a great job on this! I also wanted to thank you for the very sweet comments you’ve left on my blog. They are much appreciated! Hope you’re having a wonderful week! <3 Candy

  12. Wow, nice video Marjie, thanks so much with the tutorial. Perfect Pearls are so awesome, I need to get mine out and play.

  13. Fantastic video tute Marjie! I forgot how fabulous those PPs are! x

  14. Great video Marjie! I’ve never tried the third technique with the refresher….but I will now 🙂

  15. Great video! Thanks for taking time to post the techniques. The faux suede using the ink refresher is new to me and I can’t wait to try it. I’ve made similar but using the glassine sheets with alcohol inks and even inka golds.

  16. Very cool techniques

  17. Great video Marjie…lovely techniques and results!

    kind regards, Alie 🙂

  18. Great video Marjie, love that faux suede technique, will give that one a try. Just subscribed so I don’t miss a thing! Hugs, Anne x

  19. Fab video Marjie and a great reminder!!, Like someone else said, time to dust off those pearls! And I have to say, yes, faux suede flowers sound like a magical idea! Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. Fab video Marjie! I’m a fan of Perfect Pearls although I don’t have the sprays, preferring to mix them myself.
    Love the Pearls on the faux suede.

  21. Oh boy, Marjie.. this was fun to watch, first of all.. and each card has such a style to it. So simple, but the results are dynamic. Thank you.

  22. What an inspiring video, Marjie! My Perfect Pearls (which, by the way, I just *had* to have) have been sitting in a drawer for about two years now. I had almost forgotten the magical powers they possess! But, you have reminded me of that today and I will get them out and get reacquainted! Thanks!
