This scrapbook page is adorned with wonderful handmade “Sea-Glass” to give you a feel of the ocean!
Finished Sample Size is: 12” x 12”
cardstock (yellow, blue, velum blue parchment)
Perfect Medium (clear)
Perfect Pearls (blush, gold, turquoise)
pigment inks (blues, yellows, greens)
chip board or illustration board
Step 1. Use pre-cut chip board letters or cut your own from chipboard using a die cut machine. Cut or tear random shapes to resemble shards of sea glass.
Step 2. Apply pigment inks directly onto the chip board. Use a variety of colors for the best effect.
Step 3. Sprinkle the chip board with UTEE and heat. While hot, apply more UTEE, layer UTEE about 3 times to give it a good depth. Let cool.
Step 4. Apply Perfect Medium and then dust with Perfect Pearls. Sprinkle again with UTEE and begin to heat from a distance, slowly moving in so the UTEE won’t blow away. The surface will bead up and then blend into dimensional patterns. While it is still HOT, spray with a squirt bottle (not a mister), the surface will become pitted like sea glass.
Step 5. Once the “sea-glass” items have cooled wrap a few with wire and beads to embellish.
Step 6. Tear blue parchment paper and place in the corner of page. Layer images and journaling on cardstock and place on page.
Step 7. Add the “sea-glass” letters and objects to finish page.
