Day 2: Quintessentially Christmas Blog Hop with ICE Resin and Indigo Blu

“Helen Louise’s Happy Christmas” a mixed media collage using ICE Resin and Flitter Flakes by Carol La Valley, ICE Resin Content Manager

IndigoBlu-ICEResin-Hop-1

When I began this project I knew I wanted to try painting Flitter on a photograph. Our hop is Christmas-themed, so that helped, but I really did not have in mind anything specific in mind other than altering a photo. Now I understand why occasionally designers groan when asked, “What was your inspiration?” Helen Louise, like most of us, evolved and emerged as the day went on.

art-mechanique-essentialsICE Resin materials:
ICE Resin®
Craft Cup and Stir Stick
1 Sheet from Art Mechanique™ Collage Paper Pack
Art Mechanique™ Paper Sealer

Indigo Blu materials:
Yorkshire Dales Flitter Flake
Flitter Glue
Piece of Flitter Scrubby
Vodka Martini, Goldfinger, and Miss Moneypenny English Cottage Acrylics

IndigoBlu-ICEResin-collage-1Other materials and tools:
Burgandy Suede
Paint Brushes
Tooth Picks
Scissors
Flat Stick-on Pearls
5×7 inch Hard Canvas
Vintage-looking Photo (I found her on Graphics Fairy!) Tip: I printed a couple of duplicates just in case. (She might have become a card, but I did not have any red paper the right shade!)
Non-stick Craft Mat
Gloves: I did not use gloves, but if you have manicured nails you might want to as my gelicos are now truly due for a manicure. My thumb and forefinger are now leafed! I’m proudly telling anyone who asks I am crafty and artistic.

Instructions, commentary, tips, and a song for “Helen Louise’s Happy Christmas”:

Art Mechanique Paper Sealer1.  Use a flat bush to paint Vodka Martini on canvas in a slightly swishing motion. Let dry.

2.  Seal front and back of Collage Pack paper with Art Mechanique Sealer. Let dry completely.

Tip: You can seal one side and flip it immediately and brush sealer on other side.

3.  Use fine tip brush or a toothpick to paint Flitter Glue on the parts you want to highlight in photo. In this case, I chose to do the pine boughs the model was holding.

IndigoBlu-ICEResin-collage-4

Tip: The photo to the left is an example what happened when I used a fine tip brush and the Flitter Scrubby on the photo. What I learned: When you stamp with flitter, you “kiss” the paper with the stamp. Brushing the flitter on added a bit more glue than I might have liked, but I couldn’t bear to throw it out.

4.  Add Flitter Flakes. Shake off excess. IndogoBlu-ICEResin-collage-3

5.  Gently use Flitter Scrubby to “polish” the flake.

Tip: Gently. Scrub outward to inward. I tell you this because I didn’t and so I transferred a bit of flake where I didn’t originally plan. Ha! An excuse to fussy cut!

Alternative: The photo below is an example of using a toothpick to “paint” the Flitter Glue on the boughs. The trick to having the glue “kiss” the paper is taking a piece of non-stick craft mat, placing it on top and then pulling it off straight and quickly. You can use a baby wipe to clean the glue of f of the mat.

 

toothpick-ICE-Resin-Indigo-BLu I also found that if I used my fingernail rather than the scrubby to take off the excess flake, the result gave me pine boughs with a little bit of dimension. Woo hoo!

dimension-with-Flitter-and-ICE-Resin

6.  Fussy cut image while singing, “Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches.” This is sure to:

A)  Make you feel good about your project.

B)  Make anyone who hears you ask why you are singing Christmas songs before Halloween.

IndigoBlu-ICEResing-collage-5

7.  Paint pinecones with Goldfigner and Miss Moneypenny. Let dry.

Tip: I went ahead and sealed the edge of my photo because I cut it.indigoblu-iceresing-colllage-6

8.  Add pearls to pine boughs.

9.  Mix ICE Resin per manufacturer instructions. (One-to-one ratio of resin and hardener, stir gently and thoroughly stir for 2 minutes.)

10.  Paint a thin layer of ICE Resin on the canvas with a disposable paint brush.

11.  Place the paper in the center of the canvas. ICE Resin is your glue at this point. Paint a thin layer of ICE Resin on the paper.

12.  Place the girl on the paper.

indigoblu-iceresin-collage-713.  Paint a final layer of ICE Resin on the project and let dry 8 to 10 hours.

14.  I decided to embellish the edges of my piece with burgandy suede lace as I was still yearning for that pop of red.

15.  If you wish to hang your piece, you can affix a hanger to the back or you could take the glass out of a 5×7″ frame and place your collage in the frame.

 

                                                                           Christmas is just four months away (at the time of this hop).                                                                          When will you begin decorating and hang up your project?

I am lucky to hop with these exceptionally talented creatives. I know you will adore their projects:

ICE Resin Vampire FX Earrings with Baerbel Born

blood red earringsHi! Baerbel from Germany here.

I know it’s a while until Halloween, but this summer I have been in a vampire kind of mood, and maybe some jewellery crafters will keep it in mind that we can create all unusual effects with ICE Resin for all seasons.

By adding some Memento inks in a deep red tone to my ICE Resin I achieved a look like a drop of blood.

But because I am a dedicated recycle girl, I gave some broken jewellery a second life. The left overs of a broken brooche have been added to my bezels to make some vintage looking earrings. 

To level the bezel, I filled it with some polymer clay which has been baked according to instructions. By adding some colored ICE Resin to the bezel and add the brooch parts I could fixate the brooch parts and get the wet look I have been after in one step.

Small bows made with a Rue Romantique ribbon gave the final touch.

Tips:
Drip any left overs of colored resin on a craft mat and let cure. You can use the drops on your next cards or save them for Halloween.

It only takes a drop or two of pigment to color the resin. The pigment can change the chemistry of the resin and hardener, so the standard is to add color with a toothpick drop by drop.

vampire earringsMaterials:
ICE Resin
Memento ink (Imagine Crafts /Tsukineko,color ‘Tangelo’)
Bezels 
pearls and broken brooch (stash)

A Rue Romantique Adorned Christmas Tree – Day 1

T’was many days before Christmas and I was planning my list

of sweet gifts to make and ornaments of bliss.

I’d need resin — clear ICE, and bezel from Rue

 for that Romantique look, so Victorian and true!

I’d need rhinestones and charms and oh so pretty papers

photos of loved ones up and down through the ages.

My kitchen table is full of my tools:

jewelry pliers, paint brushes and magical glue.

Wait! I need glitter and scissors and such

I’ll invite a friend over! A working coffee clutch!

Lovely things will appear as as we laugh and create

our Rue Romantique Christmas is going to be great!

Holiday Gifts Made with Love

Handmade-Holidays-Blog-Hop-2013-Logo-300x283Yesterday was so much fun! Did you get ideas? The Madonna and Child Pillow pun  on Jonathan Fong’s post cracked, the Teacup Flowers Amy Bowerman made with Eileen Hull’s dies was ever so charming, The Creative Goddess’ Vintage Bell Wreath brought us back to the 1960s, and Teresa Abajo’s advent calendar made us want to begin counting down the days to St. Nick.

Our own Lexi Grenzer delved into her roots and made a Dia de Los Muertos necklace and a sign. She also made a gorgeous tray and a wall shelf.

JoMama is ready for holiday parties with her cheese and crackers board.
