For this project I used mica sheets as I did with yesterday's charms. Instead of using 2 identical sheets I just used one piece for the page and adhered the images/words to the front sides using the Glue Film.
Mica Sheets - US Artquest
Queen's Dresser Drawers Skinny Mini Risque Collage Sheet - Hannah Grey
Streuter Glue Film
Adirondack Alcohol Ink - Ranger
Alcohol Ink Tool - Ranger
Archival Ink - Jet Black - Ranger
Flourish Stamp - Fancy Pants
Crop-A-Dile - WeR Memory Keepers
Wire - unknown
Clear Acrylic Sealer - Plaid
1. Cut desired images from collage sheet and print desired words from computer.
2. Determine which images/words you will be using for each piece of mica. I like to lay them all out before hand then arrange the order of sheets alternating sizes & shapes to give the book a fun finished look.
3. Adhere the images/words to each sheet of mica. You may use your favorite adhesive to do so. I used Streuter's Glue Film because it's quick and no dry time is necessary. Simply cut a small piece of Glue Film and place it where you want your image/word. Layer the image over the piece of Glue Film and heat with embossing gun or iron.
4. It is time to add holes to your pages. To ensure I had proper hole alignment on each "page" I made 2 marks on my Non Stick Craft Sheet with an erasable marker. I placed each sheet of mica over the guide marks and added dots with the marker. This way I knew they would all match.
5. Next, flip all of your sheets over and stamp on the back sides using Archival Ink. Let dry completely.
NOTE - these next steps are self explanatory so I didn't take pics....
6. Once the pages are dry, mist the ink with a light coat of clear acrylic sealer. Let dry.
7. Apply desired colors of Alcohol Inks to the back side of each page.
8. Add eyelets and bind in desired fashion. I used a vintage copper wire to bind my pages so they could be hung from a necklace.
Although I don't have the necklace part finished you get the general idea!
So there you have it...another fun project made with Mica!
Told you this stuff was cool. There are loads more fun things you can create with Mica but that's all I'm going to share at this time. I hate to dwell on a particular item too long so at some point in the future I'll come back and explore mica some more.
Tomorrow I'm going to be showing you Ranger's new Metallic Crackle Paints!!!
Mmmmmm you are gonna love this stuff!!
Till then friends, have a super evening!!
