This week’s challenge at The Cat’s Pajamas was a photo one, showing lots of flowers and colors of white, coral and mint green. My inspiration came in the form of an ATC using the Patterned Petals set to stamp then adding some small Prima flowers and white acrylic paint from Ranger. It was fun and I can use what I learned this time to make my next acrylic project even better!
Foil is one of those rather picky mediums, but you go through the work because the result is so spectacular! Creative Imaginations has made it pretty dang easy with their Foil Kits as reviewed at ScrapFriends recently. The foil itself comes in themed color kits with 2 sheets each per color – nice! Also included is a tube of foil glue. This is interesting stuff and I want to use it more to test it’s limits for sure. It is a milky liquid glue that dries clear and sticky.
Another product that CI has to go great with the foil are the patterned adhesive embellishments. These are like rub-ons with sticky on both sides. Sooooo, on the top sticky side goes foil, glitter, flocking or pigment powder – take your pick! What is very cool is that the adhesive matches some of CI’s most popular lines in the Narratives collection. Way cool and beautiful to boot.
Here are some projects using the foil kits. The layout uses the patterned adhesive and glitter from PK Glitz.
This next sample is actually a Tinkering Ink Acrylic Tag with the patterned adhesive transfers plus the foil. Very neat because you can see the back from the other side of the tag.
