Happy Hump Day!! Today I’m working predominately with the March Scrapbook kit. I normally stick with the Mixed Media kit but this month the scrapbook kit looked so amazing that I had to get it!
I am somewhat out of practice with my scrapbooking but I had to give it a go and do some catching up on some of my pics. Since I wasn’t sure of my direction I didn’t do a video but rather took pictures as I went to show you how it came together.
I started out with the clover chipboard circle and painted it with some of the olive green acrylic paint from the mixed media kit I got this month.
Next I applied the gel medium (also from the mixed media kit) to the edges of the clovers and sprinkled two kinds of glitter on them.
I then set that aside and smeared on some gold crackle texture paste from my stash to the left corner of my page to both add a crackle element as well as to adhere my chipboard clovers down to the page.
I then positioned my photo and clovers and pressed them into the paste. I added a bit of adhesive to the top corners of the photo to make sure it stayed in place.
I also added a few flowers tucked in the scrolls of the chipboard to give it a finishing touch.
Here is a pic of the complete Scrapbook kit.
NOW…for my BONUS project!! As I said, I’m normally a mixed media gal…so I had my March mixed media kit that I still had TONS of supplies left in (because it was packed this month y’all!) and since I’m a jewelry maker by trade I whipped up this little cutie!
For this one you just need to use an epoxy graft glue like E600 to glue the metal pieces together (you can use hot glue in a pinch but it may not last after a bit of wear). Next attach the chain with jump rings using a couple pair of needle nose jewelry pliers, adding a clasp at the back.
Here is the complete mixed media kit below.
