The secret is in the Modge Podge. I used a larger font book this time for the words and made sure to Modge Podge the back of the words, so the print on the back wouldn't show thru. I also forced myself to wait 48 hours between drying time and moving on to the next step. I think I will give these one more coat of DG3. I also wised up and am making Smaller Holes AFTER collaging the cap. DUH. The caps are photographed on Cardboard that I am recycling into postcards. I buy cases of Fancy Feast cat food for my two spoiled boys, and the can layers are seperated by perfectly sized cardboard in very good condition. I did about 3 layers of gesso, some through stencils:
Added layers of Glimmer Mists and Adirondak color washes. The computer doesn't show how shimmery they are. I am a Glitter Whore. I know, it's hard to be taken seriously when you like sparkle, but so be it. Guilty Glitter Glutton am I. teehee.
The charms and the postcards are a good project to do together, while one project is drying, you can hop over to the other. Not sure where these are going, but I will be adding transfers of some sort either with alcohol and transparencies or gel medium. I may even bind them together and make a book. I think Happy New Years cards would be fun, too, don't you? Time will Tell, or more Accurately the Muse Will Speak. teehee. xoSusan
