Test of Products : Distress Collage Medium

Hi everyone,

Today i share with you my tests with Distress Collage Medium.

3 products absolutely perfect and amazing to create 3 different atmospheres of collage.

Matte gives like an encaustic effect layer
Crazing is a subtle crackle medium
Vintage adds a layer of sepia varnish.

I created 2 projects each with the 3 effects to be able to compare. I can't say that one is better than the other, they are all abslutely amazing.

Here is the full video tutorial. You also can dicover details photos following;

Enjoy !

Have a nice day and stay safe !

ICS#20.15 Minialbum Steampunk by Francesca

Hello everyone, today I present a total scrapbooking project made using exclusively a pad of cards, from which I extracted the patterns as well as the embellishments.

The pad in question is from STAMPERIA and is called Voyages Fantastiques.

The cards inside being very beautiful on both sides and of a fairly important thickness, I decided to use them individually, without gluing them together or on a basic card.

For the pages I chose these two cards which in turn were divided into 4 squares and I divided them in half, obtaining two parts 15x30cm, then I creased them at 15cm

I then took these two cards on which the tags were printed and cut them out: on one card the tags were totally drawn, on the other hand the same tags left the space in the center empty for a possible photo or journal.

I matched each of the designed tags with their own empty space, I glued them to each other by first inserting a strip of 10x5cm cream colored recovery paper. I made a cut with the cutter in the center of the fold of the 15x30cm patterns (on each) I inserted the glued strip inside the tags, passing it on the other side and inserting it in turn in another pair of tags

I then cut out 3 smaller tags on another pattern paper and 3 watches and combined them with an eyelet to create additional embellishment elements

I then used scrap strips as decoration, applying them on the pattern cards with glue, some leaving them not totally glued so you can insert the tags with clock

Finally, as a cover I chose a pattern with the planisphere, I cut it making it become 15x30 and gluing the two halves together so as to obtain a higher thickness.

I then used a blue jute string to hold the whole structure together

I hope you liked this quick and easy design, see you soon for another project

ICS#20.14 Polyshrink tecnique by Marcella

Hello everyone,
I come back this month with a well-known but always very fascinating technique that always arouses curiosity: the use of polyshrink.

Polyshrink is a magical material that allows you to transform with heat by reducing its linear size by 4 times increasing its thickness by 4 times.

The final purpose, in this case, is the creation of pendants that can become earrings, charms or other things but of course your imagination will allow you to find the best use for you.

The starting point is a stamp to be colored and cut ...

For coloring I used Prismacolor pencils.

And then the magic of the polyshrink ... the heat develops the transformation ....

Thanks for visiting
