Metal & Acetate: idea book

Hi everyone, 
Enjoying the week so far? 
Now this is a very special project today, but I love the idea.... such a neat project to start... 
I will let Linda tell you all about it.... 

This was one of those projects that you dread starting ... then you have such a good time ... you lose track completely. I am a visual type of a girl ... I even think in pictures ... so ... something handy and visual in my craftroom is great for inspiration. I call this little book a technique journal. Basically ... there are no words ... just lots of different ways to attach "stuff" to acetate including metal. Is it finished? Hopefully not! As I learn new ways ... I will just keep adding them. 

I attached the frame on the cover by making two groups of two holes in the acetate and the frame and tying it in place with waxed cotton ... I have Shari Carroll to thank for that little gem!

Tip of the day 
To get a neat finish for metal on acetate ... I put Humungo tape on the back of the metal before I die cut it ... that way the whole object is covered and gives a much neater finish on the reverse.

Tim Stamps: Steampunk

See you tomorrow


  1. Wow inspirationally Linda a great idea and fab book!!


  2. The way several pages show through one another and the different colours and treatments of metal make the project both fun and interesting to look at. Food for thought !
