Mask Tags

My local scrapbook store has great "yard sales". I picked this pack of K&Co. paper and embellishments.

So then, I had been craving some time with my new Heidi Swapp mask. I made three with the colors to match my new paper pack loot.

Making the mask is alot of fun. I used inks and Tattered Angels glitter spray. Then finished with the rub-ons, stickers, 3d flower stickers and edging for the aged look. This mask technique is described also in Tim Holtz using a misting technique with perfect pearls. Check it out it's really cool!!!

Clay MiniBook

This was a fun book to make. I used a baking clay for this minibook vs the air dry clay. After this stamped image baked, I used a little gold foil (I had a hard getting it to stick with tacky glue), metallic paint, inks, and a little glass paint for a shimmer.

I then attached an accordian of paper, drilled holes for the leather cord and attached the buttons I altered with alcohol inks.

This is the back of the book, gold ink was stamped prior to baking. Next time I want to press gold leaf (instead of the foil) into the clay with the stamp then bake it.

I like this very simple minibook. I use my minibooks mostly for quotes. These are dried leaves sandwiched between vellum paper, sewn and finished off with copper brads. This was a gift for my hubby.

Minibook with Quotes

This is another fun "glass" project I did when I made the "glass" tags. I painted, stamped and placed a flattened, dried flower on top of a round piece of chipboard. (Actually a coaster). Then finished it with the liquid epoxy. While it was still sticky, I pressed the center of the daisy flowers in. The center is gold microbeads and a mini shell.

With ribbon, 6 pages are connected together attached to the chipboard backing. I was able to include 17 quotes with a few Bible verses. Have fun if you decide to make one.
