I am making magnets using drink coasters and bottle caps. Some will be gifts, others will be abandoned for people to find while we are traveling. I will be on the lookout for some more coasters to use!
To get the images to place in the bottle caps, I scanned and printed out the coaster, then used a large hole punch out the image. It is glued into the cap than covered with an acrylic seal.
Here are a few more magnets I have made. These were made using small buttons placed in the cap, and ultra thick embossing powder was melted over them.
This is a 12 by 12 mixed media canvas. I painted the background with acrylic paint in a repeating diamond pattern, then I painted on embossing ink, and sprinkled it with gold glitter embossing powder. The mask is covered with marbled mullberry paper and embellished with feathers and gems. I used Mardi Gras beads in the canvas to divide it up.
I decided to make another altered canvas just for fun today when I say the cute quote. I remebered a picture I had that would work perfectly.
Our First Challange was to make a Blue and Brown Card, one to send our partner, and one for Operation Write Home.
This was my first attempt. Hope you like it.
I love participating in activities that not only allow me to be creative making cards, but that will also benefit others. An art group that I belong to, Altered stART, has a new monthly swap challenge where we will make two identical cards, sending one to a partner, and one to Operation Write Home.
I can’t wait to get started today. I know I will be making more than required, so check back later to see what I come up with!
