“Luck of the Irish”
Glue Dots® Adhesives Used
I used Inkssentials Memory capsules, frames, and glass to create this project. I used 1 ½ x 1 ½ inch frame.
Cut a 1 ½ inch square from your favorite Kraft paper. Ink the background square with Tim Holtz’s Distress Ink Peeled Paint. Perfect for St. Patty’s Day. Stamp a background image with Ranger’s Archival Ink Coffee and Studio 490 stamp set Art Rules.
Cut a clover out of Grungepaper that is inked with Peeled Paint and ink around the edges with Tim’s Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Use several Glue Dots® Adhesives Mini dots to adhere the clover to your background.
Print “Luck of the Irish on Kraft or white cardstock. Ink up with the Vintage Photo. Use Glue Dots® Adhesives Minis to adhere the words to the clover and background. Add a little Paperclip from Tim Holtz’s collection from Advantus Embellishment Mini Clips-Antique Nickel/Brass/Copper.
Here comes the newest fun product from Glue Dots® Adhesives: Macro! They are so tiny yet adhere beautifully. Adhere the Tim Holtz’s Advantus Spinner with Macro and add a bit of green bling with the Macro as well. Just wait, you are going to love this adhesive dot!
Along with the glass back and the capsule on top of the charm slide all of it into the frame. Add a Tim Holtz Trinket Pin to the top. Hook it all to your bling necklace!
I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® design team.
I had a "first" yesterday. I've avoided all my life, with purpose, painting rooms. It just did not hold any appeal for me. Yesterday I had my first lesson in painting 101 with Ruth. My daughter wanted to add stripes to the baby's room. I called my dearest friend who does know how to do all this. She and I spent the afternoon and evening taping off stripes, about 1 hour per wall and then painting the first coat. Well, Ruth did most of the work. My first experience was not as bad as I thought it would be. LOL David was to finish the second coat last night. I can't wait to see it.
It's been hard for nearly two weeks to get my creativity onto my pages. I can't see it getting any better in the next few weeks. I'm going to have to learn to function on less sleep to get my crafty therepy!
Have a crafty weekend!
