I've already gotten several e-mails this morning. LOL. You watched it!! Was I as wooden in appearance as I felt? LOL!
Well the episode isn't as much about instruction, as it is about showing that you make something. So I'll pump it up with the instructions I provided to the production company now, since I don't see them on the website.
Embossed Tin Scrapbook
On the inside is the 'Posh Paper Bag Pulldown' – which is made from a recycled brown paper grocery bag. Here is the page before pictures are added.
I first learned of this technique from TechniqueJunkies newsletter. Here is my version of the instructions for that portion:
Posh Paper Bag Pulldown
1. Spritz paper bag with water and crumple. Do this twice.
2. Drizzle three colors of pearlescent acrylic paint on bag (I used Ranger Pearlescent Acrylic Paint)
3. Brayer with short strokes
4. (Allow paint to dry)
5. Apply metallic ink direct-to-paper, to catch hills of crumpled texture (I used Brilliance, Silver)
6. (Allow metallic ink to dry)
7. Place bag between two sheets of unprinted recycled newsprint
8. Iron to heat set ink and paint. Do not use steam.
9. Cut painted paper bag to 8 ½” x 7”. Fold in half length and widthwise.
10. Place over bottom, center of accordion folded insert.
11. Adhere pocket side around three edges, leaving top open for ‘pockets’.
12. Punch interior corners with corner rounder punch to match accordion booklet.
13. On pull-down side, turn each edge down to form triangles, leaving approx. 1” unfolded.
14. Cut a 2” square piece of white cardstock. Cut diagonally to make two triangles. Stamp ‘place’ and ‘date’ onto each white triangle of cardstock.
15. Place white cardstock triangles over the paper bag triangles and adhere.
16. Adhere a picture to each panel. Either cut or print the pictures to 2 ½” x 3 ½”.
The decoration on the top of the tin was covered pretty well – but I made a quick video so you can see it better (I hope!)
1.Pounce domino with Alcohol Ink, stamp with Stazon ink to create ‘resist’ with flower stamp. Quickly buff off the ink to remove the AI only where the Stazon came in contact with it. *this step takes some practice, but it's easily done over and over again until you get the hang of it.*
2.Apply metal tab and jump rings to adhere to jewelry finding on top of tin.
3.Put small pictures into microscope slide frame and hang with jump ring.
I will post the Domino Bracelet Instructions this evening
Wow. I can say 'as seen on tv' now, huh?
- PLASTIC microscope slides. Very flexible and less worrisome on a dangling charm (especially on an interactive piece) than glass ones. I purchased them on eBay. Not from this seller – but a similar item
- The Metal frames and alcohol inks are from Ranger. You could also use Copic Various ink refills for those steps.
- DVD Tin from www.effectuality.com
- The Spellbinders' Wizard is my die cut and embossing system. (cracks me up that I couldn't name it on air).
- Dominos are from http://www.articusstudiodesign.com/id38.html.
- All metal findings, tabs, jump rings etc. were from Renaissance Art Stamps. I am going to try and contact them today. I will update if they are available. They recently were informed that their building will not renew any leases – and so I think they are closing down. 🙁
