This project was in the August Craft Stamper mag, inspired by Linda Brown using the Ten Second Studio metal. I was up at The Craft Box busy preparing scrapbook pages for my classes when Lynn, showed me the article. She had just stocked up on all the TSS materials so we decided to have a play with them..... It was so therapeutic and indeed we were busy for a few hours - poor hubby at home wondered what was taking me so long! Working with the paper stump to stretch the metal and define the images was my favourite bit....i think....or it could have been splashing the alcohol inks on and seeing them run into the patterns I had just made using those gorgeous moulds, or scuffing the black metal and seeing the silver gleam through...or.... well I just loved it all!
So now I shall be having a go at creating something of my own - though I'm sure I shall end up having to make another of these mirrors (purchased from IKEA) as I have two daughters - can't have them squabbling over this one can I? Somehow I don't think my son would appreciate his morning shave using this baby - though his girlfriend Niamh would totally love it....so that makes it two I have to make!
I only got one photo because the batteries need charging and the camera switched itself off, so it doesn't do the actual thing justice, get the magazine and check it out. Fab. Thanks Linda!
