Project of the week-Cracked Glass Technique-

HI EVERYONE! Deonna here with a new Project of the week.  I want to show you how to make "Cracked Glass". So Gather your supplies and let's get started.


RI Stamps- Serengeti collection- 5411-0 African Post Collage (lg), 5306-J Chimp
Archival ink in Coffee
Decorative paper of choice
White Cardstock
Perfect Medium ink or versamark
Thick Embossing powder
Powder tray
Vintage Photo distress stain
Sponge
Heat Tool

1.  Take your Post collage stamp, Archival ink, decorative paper and stamp the image onto the decorative paper.  Trim the paper down to the desired size or die cut it out. I just cut mine to 5" x 3 1/4". 




2.  Gather your stamped image, versamark ink and thick embossing powder, heat safe mat, and powder tray.  With the stamped side of your decorative paper facing up. Turn your versamark pad facing down and apply all over the stamped image. After inking, over the top of your powder tray pour your thick embossing powder onto the ink just applied to the decorative paper. Heat set the embossing powder. You'll know that the powder is set once it all melts over the paper.  Repeat the process another 1-2 times until the powder is melted and looks thick and shiny. Allow to cool. 








3.  Bend the embossed paper all different directions to create cracks. Bend more for fine cracks, bend less for larger cracks. 


4.  Take your Vintage Photo Distress Stain and rub all over the top of the image. This should allow the stain to seep into the cracks and give an "Antiqued" look.  You can also sponge over the cracks to get more stain into them.  Take a Paper towel and remove the excess stain. Photo's 15-18
5.  I then decided to repeat the whole process with the chimp stamp. Now we have the final project to create a card with.

Bible Art Journaling- Exodus 17:6

Hi everyone, sorry that i've been missing lately.  I have so much on my plate right now and just trying to survive.  My daughter moves to an apartment this week.  She has College orientation on Friday.  I've scrapbooked 28 pages for a friend, canned 7 quarts of beans and cleaned my craft area. Wow, what a week it's starting to be. lol
today i'd like to share another Bible art page with all of you. I did draw the scene my self and watercolored it with pencils.  The letters are stickers . This is a message of faith. 


Exodus 17:6
Then Moses cried out to the Lord, “What am I to do with these people? They are almost ready to stone me.”
The Lord answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders of Israel and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel.And he called the place Massah[a] and Meribah[b] because the Israelites quarreled and because they tested the Lord saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?”
