Summer of Creative Chemistry - 103 - Day 6

Summer of Creative Chemistry 103 with Online Card Classes - Day 6

... And now for something completely different! - No classes for day 6 - but lots of information presented in an informative video and some homework in the form of a challenge. We were asked to revisit one of our favorite techniques from the previous classes or to try one which was new to us. Then Tim asked that we give it a twist by using any surface other than the traditional cardstock. 

I decided to have a go at the paper mosaic technique onto a grunge board, die cut mannequin shape. I mounted this onto burlap and I tried texture paste through a stencil onto the burlap directly and it worked well. I also tried using Alcohol Inks on plastic scrabble tiles.

Cardstock did feature in my finished layout as I used a small piece of Kraft Resist, with a Stamp & Archival Ink. I then inked this with several colours of Distress Ink.

Items used in this project:
  • Patterned Papers - Kaisercraft Miss Empire and 75 Cents
  • Ideology Paperstash - Kraft Resist
  • Distress Paper Mosaic Kit
  • Distress Inks
  • Sizzix Sewing Room Die
  • Grunge Board
  • Layering Stencil - Measured 012
  • Stampers Anonymous - Components Collection - Vogue 
  • Alcohol Inks
  • Blending Solution
  • Scrabble Letters
  • Buttons
  • Crochet Doily
  • Bakers Twine
  • Sewing Machine Charm
  • Decorative Pin
  • Texture Paste
  • Ribbon
  • Press Studs
  • Hooks & Eyes
  • Lace
  • Burlap
It is a shame the classes have now come to an end, but it's now time to revisit many of the techniques I have learnt and to make some cards and gifts. I will also be using them in my scrapbooking. I now have an amazing library of technique tags to refer to, with the details attached to the back of each one.
I can recommend subscribing to all of the Creative Chemistry classes on offer as they are still available to purchase and take part in even though they wont be live.

12/08/16 - edited to say - I have just heard that I was a winner of the Grand prize for Creative Chemistry 103! I can't quite believe it!! 
Thanks for looking

  1. I love your sewing theme and I really like the dress form you did with the mosaic technique. I spy quite a few techniques on here!

    I am also sad that class has finished. I could watch those videos every day!
