Life's a Beach Tin w/ Beach Rules! ATC's - IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko

As you know this month the Altered Pages Design Team is fortunate enough to be co-hosting a month full of fun with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko combining the wonderful products of both companies into our creations.



For my final project of the month I wanted to share
 a fun box full of ATC's which are in fact: 


BEACH RULES!


The tin was inked initially with Mellow Mint Opaque StazOn ink to which I applied a layer of GlazOn. I then added Blue Hawaii, Midnight Blue and Spiced Chai StazOn Midi's.  The fun group of friends at the beach image is from the collage sheet On The Beach .  I added a bit of wadded glassine envelope, micro beads a tiny star fish all adhered using Vintage Creative Medium. When you flip the lid open you'll find the...Beach Rules ATC's!  Inside the cover of the tin is an image of a wooden arrow pointing the way to the swimming hole.  

But this is also Beach Rule 

#1 - Swim Often!




Beach Rules....

#2:  Bare Feet are Mandatory


Image - The Water's Fine; Cork; StazOn Midnight Blue, Spiced Chai.

#3: Breath the Salty Air


Tilted Vertigo Film inked with StazOn ink on the back.  
Image and sentiment adhered using Clear Creative Medium.

#4:  Collect Seashells


Shells colored using Memento Dual Tip Markers, 
Sponged LUXE Inks & StazOn Spiced Chai along the edges.

#5 You're Never Too Old to Frolic


Background created using a Monoprint Technique & LUXE Ink.

#6: Soak up the Sun


StazOn Midi's & GlazOn on Sheet Metal ATC, 
Image & Sentiment adhered with Clear Creative Medium

#7: Ride the Waves


Rattlesnake Vertigo Film - Image applied to the back using Clear Creative Medium 
then inked using StazOn Blue Hawaii Midi & Midnight Blue.  
Sentiment glued to front of ATC.

#8: Build Sandcastles


Game Board ATC blank inked with Memento LUXE inks. 
The "sand" was created by mixing Vintage Creative Medium with brown micro beads.


#9: Enjoy the Breeze


This ATC was created on a large piece of mica - the image and sentiment were both adhered to the back of the ATC using Clear Creative Medium then inked & stamped with StazOn Midi's ink.

#10: Use the Buddy System


Creative Medium image transfer onto paper.  The image was then mounted to a piece of canvas which was colored using Memento LUXE ink.   Below is a close up of the Image Transfer - this was made using an ink jet print. It is recommended that you use a toner based image but personally I like the distressed look of the ink jet image better.


#11: Listen to the Waves Roll In


This is a double image transfer using Creative Medium onto a piece of Taffeta Vertigo Film (on the back).  The image of the girl on the dock was the first transfer then I transferred inked washi tape for the second image transfer.  I rubbed a bit of the second transfer off of the girl image so it didn't detract from that image too much.  

and finally Beach Rule
#12 Enjoy the Wild Life!

This image was adhered to a piece of handmade white paper using Vintage Creative Medium.  The paper it's self had been coated with a layer of the Vintage CM prior to the image being glued down for a bit of color.

And here they are all together....


I hope you've enjoyed this tin full of 
Beach Rules!

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.


Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
