I hope you all had a chance to view all the Design Team samples with the JUST released Scripture Series 2 set and the Scrolly Borders! The Scriptures are so wonderful! If you didn't get to see it, please scroll down and you'll see the release. Fabulous!!! Well.... today you'll get to see another project made with this special release....
I just love the days that we spend time with one of our Design Team members! Everyone on this team is so talented and the ideas are so diverse.... I just love having them explain their creative process for each project!
Today we are blessed to be spending time with Dawn Lusk. Dawn has so many great ideas, and I know you will love seeing how she does these tiles! If you are looking for a quick and pretty easy project, I think she will inspire you today!
Hello, Dawn here with hopefully a relatively quick, fun technique made even better with the awesome release of Scripture Series 2 and Scrolly Borders. Thanks to YOU, our customers, for these wonderful Scriptures!
Here are the supplies you'll need to make this project:
Tip: Experiment on a piece of glossy cardstock before starting your tile
Start by putting several drops of the colors on your applicator.
Dab all over the tile until you get the "look" you want. Try not to fill in, leave some blank spaces for the ink to "run" and blend. You don't want to muddy it up!
Next, spritz your applicator with the alcohol, this will magically make your inks blend.
I love how it turned out! I almost hated to cover it up!! LOL
At this stage I sponged the edges with Black Soot Distress ink (more added later as you'll see!)
Now, for the next step you'll need:
Stamp your Scrolly Borders image twice as shown or as you choose. Tear the tissue rather than cut it. This will make it more "invisible" when you adhere it to the tile!
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the tile, then position the tissue over it and apply a thicker coat. Carefully press out any bubbles. Set aside to thoroughly dry.
You can also adhere a piece of thin cork to the back so it doesn't slide or scratch surfaces.
I also sponged some more Black Soot Distress ink around the edges before giving it a good coat of a clear sealer.
I hope I've inspired you to try something different! Thanks for stopping!
Thanks so much Dawn for this neat project and the step by step instructions! What a great gift idea! With the Holidays coming quickly, I know we all can use some ideas!
I hope you'll leave Dawn some love here and then pop on over to her blog to see all the other ideas she has! You'll be glad you did!
