Hello my friends. Earlier this year, I participated in Creative Jump Start, a way to get your creative juices flowing. One of the blogs we visited belonged to Cuchy, and she had an amazing video tutorial on embossing wet toilet paper in an embossing folder. I tried it, using my checkered embossing folder, thinking it might be a technique to use in one of my classes. I really loved the technique. However, when my pieces were dry, they were all warped, and I didn't think they would work for what I had originally planned. I'll have to try it again and perhaps weight the pieces down while drying to keep them flat. I kept the pieces anyway, thinking I could still use them somehow.
When I saw that Grungy Monday on Linda Ledbetter's blog, Studio L3, this week was to make wearable art, I decided to try to use some of the embossed toilet paper to make some earrings. Of course, part of the challenge is to use techniques or products of Tim Holtz.
I started by using the mini leaf & branch die to cut a lot of leaves from the embossed toilet paper (shown on the lower part of the photo). Then I used alcohol inks to color the leaves. I let them dry and then gave them two coats of acrylic glaze, so they are nice and shiny.
Thanks for stopping by.
