Creating with leftovers

Hi everyone,  Monica here with a mixed-media project to share with you. I know how amazing the Globecraft jewelry pieces are and so today I want to show you what else you can do with them. Punch out the pieces from the bookboard and then what you are left with is an amazing stencil for mixed-media projects.

Step 1: Using the bookboard backing as a stencil, drag modeling paste across the opening using a spatula. 

This is what it will look like.

Step 2: Place the punched-out charm piece on top of the modeling paste image and apply heat with a heat tool.

 The heat causes the modeling paste to bubble and give a nice texture.

Step 3: use color mist sprays, paints or inks to color.

Final piece.

Hope everyone enjoyed my project today. Be sure to keep all those extra and leftover pieces to use in some mixed-media fun!
