Yippie! I actually finished off the "All Dogs Go To Heaven" project that I started with my metal embossing kit for the Cricut from Chomas Creations. The girl I made this for is a hippie wannabe, so I made it in sort of a grungy, tie-dye style. I hope it doesn't make her too sad.......
I also actually executed a project that I envisioned a while ago! WooHoo!! :) I wanted to make a mosaic frame from UTEE and metal. I thought it would look pretty cool! I used the Ten Seconds Studio molds for the patterns on the UTEE. I did a freehand pattern on the metal. I used Rock Star Black metal and black UTEE. I cut the UTEE pieces while it was still warm. I embossed and sanded the metal and then I cut it up into pieces.
I took a cheapo square wooden frame that I got from Michael's and covered it with the Humungo 2 sided tape from TSS. I cut out the hole in the middle and trimmed the sides. Then I painted the edges. Now, I SHOULD have painted the frame first...... oh, well.
I placed all of the pieces of UTEE and metal on the frame. After I got it to look the way I wanted, I filled in all of the spaces with microbeads. I highlighted the UTEE pieces with Perfect Pearls. I touched up around the middle of the frame with some paint. I put in a photo and VOILA.... my altered item project for our local fair! :) :)
