Clearly for Art…
My oh my, oh my is Wendy Vecchi’s “Clearly for Art” super cool to work with… seriously you will LOVE playing with this modeling film. It is literally fool proof you CAN NOT mess this stuff up… promise!
Supplies Needed: Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Florals Bigz Die, Alcohol Inks Cranberry, Ginger, Terra Cotta, Ranger Felt Applicator Tool, Studio 490 Be Inspired… Make Art Stamp Set, Archival Ink Jet Black, Ranger – Non Stick Craft Sheet, Heat Gun, 7 Vintage Buttons, Embroidery Floss
- Using the Tattered Florals Die cut two of the daisy looking flowers. Punch a small hole in the center of each flower. Place these on a Non Stick Craft Sheet. Apply Cranberry, Ginger and Terra Cotta Alcohol Inks onto a Felt covered Blending Tool. Apply Alcohol Inks onto the two flowers.
- Using the Plaid stamp from the “Be Inspired… Make Art” stamp set apply Jet Black Archival Ink onto it and stamp the two flowers.
- Using a heat gun, heat one flower until you can mold it… it does not take long. Shape the flower petals into the shape you want. Once it cools it will harden and remain that shape. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THAT SHAPE… just reheat it and it will go flat. I swear this stuff is so dang cool. Now start the process all over again until you get the flower in the shape you like. See I told you, you cannot mess this up. Do the same thing on the second flower.
- Thread 6 vintage buttons together, stack the flowers on top of each other and thread the embroidery floss through the hole. Now thread 1 button onto the back and tightly tie a knot to secure the buttons in place.
It is that simple. Now you have a unique embellishment to use on any of your projects. Ok I am back into the scrap room to create more book projects and work on my next online workshop. I will be teaching you how to recreate the 10 holiday projects featured in my book. This workshop will include 2 cards, 1 mini album, 1 banner, 1 gift tag, 1 ornament and 4 layouts. Hope to see you there.
