Hop' you are having a nice Easter weekend and thanks for joining us on the first day of our mosaic week.
The DT is spoiling you this week as I have noticed just now, when I was uploading all the pictures for the week, that they have taken a lot of step by step pictures.
Starting today with Michelle and a lovely folder she made with metal....
My folder was inspired by a fantastic folder Neil had made for his TH Stamps. His was finished off with alcohol inks and loads of fabulous bits and bobs but I needed a folder fast so I did a poor mans version!!!! One day I'll get Neil to show us how he made his arty version!!
Run a few left over scraps of mirror card through your die cutter with a selection of embossing folders
Stick down onto mountboard which has been cut to the size you need. Use PVA glue and make sure you stick all the edges down. Weight the pieces as you go to ensure it is well stuck down.
Trim to size
Paint with black Acrylic paint and leave to dry
When dry sand down with a sanding block until you are happy with the effect
Finish off the edges with sticky back cotton tape
