Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog. Today I would like to share a tutorial on how I made this beautiful flip frame. The flip frame is by Ranger and Tim Holtz and I think there is a ton of potential on what you can do with it.
To begin, I grabbed a piece of cardboard (cut to fit the flip frame) and glued a piece of cardstock to it. I chose this paper because I really like the light green and also the images
I knew I wanted to use the Tim Holtz Mosaic kit again (I used this on the last Christmas project I made)
I began by adding the grout to my background in the area I wanted to do mosaic. I set this aside to dry thoroughly
While that was drying I began working on my tiles.. I grabbed some printed paper and cut it into the mosaic shapes
I also stamped my butterfly image onto white cardstock and colored it with copic markers
This butterfly came from the stamp set called "Perspective"
I also used some thin metal wire to go around my butterfly's body and used this as the antenna
Once my background grout was dry I began glueing my mosaic piecing onto it with the glue provided in the kit
This is how it looked once I was done
Next I took the glaze and added that to my mosaic tiles
This is where it starts to look so cool
I set this aside to dry
While the glaze was drying I took some black cardstock and cut out the word Majic with Tim's "happy holidays" thinlits set
Once my tiles were dry, I used distress ink on my grout and tiles. I used a wipe to clean the ink off my tiles and it stays on the grout in the background
I also went around all my edges with the ink
Once all that was done, I played everything out not my background so that I can see what it will look like when it's done before I glue
I used distress stain to color a piece of ribbon for the bottom of my final piece
After everything was done and dry, this is what my piece turned out looking like
I just love it, I think it turned out perfect. The flip frame and mosaic kits are becoming my favorites!!!
Thanks for coming by today. CHEERS!!
Just gorgeous! LOVE the mosaic!!! The butterfly is beautiful too!ReplyDelete
