PLAID FRIDAY- INK JET TRANSFERS WITH MOD PODGE

HI Guys!! Another week gone and I have no idea where the days went! Thanksgiving is right around the corner for us in the USA and then holidays will be in full effect. I don’t know how I feel about that.

One thing is for sure I will be crafting my butt off the next few weeks. One of my favorite things to make is Grungy/Vintage looking things. If its old, beat up and marked up-Im all in! So this week I decided to show how to image transfer using an ink jet printer and Mod Podge.  You can really vary the tattered look depending on how much paper you remove and as you will see… I made a mistake-and I kept going with the attitude of I meant to do that!!

Below is the result of the transfer and the video I did showing how its done. I would love to know your thoughts on this procedure and if you try it PLEASE tag me because I would love to see it. If you are not already subscribed to my Youtube Channel – please subscribe- I put up new videos every Monday-Wednesday- and Friday.

Using Collage Clay to Make a Decoden Phone Case- My Way

Hey Guys! I hope this Monday is bringing you much happiness! This weekend went by so fast, but you know I had to make some sort of Art and did I ever! I got my worn out phone case, some of my mod melts shapes and Plaids Collage Clay and went to town!! I had so much fun making this project and I have so many more ideas coming up in the future. Now, with everything I do- I do it my way- my style- but you can make this anyway you want! Research Decoden and see all the delicious different colors, patterns and styles that might suit you. This is also fun for little ones to do and for them to personalize their stuff!! I have the steps down below and as always–any questions?? Just ask!!

STEP ONE— Get your Collage Clay–Shapes or Items you want to use and your cell phone case ready

STEP FIVE– Here is where I added my own thing- I painted the whole thing with Folkart Rose Shimmer Metallic-let that dry and then used Folkart Licorice – watered down- to add a grungy look.
