Just a quick share this morning... as we're anticipating a full day power outage due to some work on the lines in the city. (edited: this post was written and pre-scheduled prior to the outage)
Hoping your days are filled with moments of fun and creative time. I've been privileged to have a few extra hours this week and today, it looks like another good day for some creative time.
Mini-albums are fun to make and I'm still using that stash of $1 store coasters we garnered a few years ago.
For this one, I used stamps, Alcohol ink, clay and some clear glass heart stones, glue dots, hot glue and a few brads from my stash.
Quick technique tips: apply a couple of dots of color on a felt pad. Swipe the felt pad across the stamp and stamp on the desired surface. Repeat. Before the colors muddy, swipe the felt across the edge of the coaster.
You can apply a drop of color on the back of the glass hearts too for a little more interest. Let dry. Use a heavy duty glue dot to secure to your surface.
Apply color to the word stamps (I used separate letters) and stamp into the clay. Cut into rectangles and bake according to manufacturer's directions.
There are so many possibilities.... I've added an accordion folded paper insert. It's ready for decoration and completion... more to come later on this one.
