I recently picked up some beautiful new MME papers and thought this MIM is the perfect opportunity to use them.

A few posts ago I had tried an idea I had using modeling paste.  The results were good, but exactly what I wanted. 
Stephanie had a great suggestion:
Another great post Kara. I like the layered look you've achieved here and all the creative experimenting you've been doing lately too. I am curious, if you've tried using the paste on a nonstick sheet, and if you can transfer an element to paper after it dries?
Genius, right?
So, of course, I tried it right away.
It totally worked.  I spread a thin layer and a thick layer of modeling paste over stencils directly onto my craft sheet.  Both worked!
Tip #1: Let it dry COMPLETELY.  I get a little impatient sometimes:)
In the photo below you can see I tried coloring them in various ways before and after spreading it onto my craft sheet.  The pieces colored with gelatos were colored before spreading over the stencil.
( I used my least favorite gelato color to! Just slice a piece off of the stick and mix it into your modeling paste with a palette knife)
  Because it had water based color added to it, it dried more flexible than the other pieces.  The ones that are solid modeling paste are a bit more stiff and brittle.
Tip #2: Be careful.  Both keep their shape well, but are still very fragile.
They took every coloring medium I tried very well. 
 My favorite were the pieces sprayed with the HS Color Shine sprays.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
