Do you ever think about things too much when you know it’s not necessary? A great way to break up this thinking pattern is to turn to creative endeavors, to “free your mind” and create what the muse wants instead. This month we have the fun challenge of creating projects with Rinea foils. There are so many funs things you can do with these foils; you can stamp on it, paint, use with mediums or create 3D decorative projects. For my card I have used foils as an embellishment, check it out.
Time: 1 hour
Spray water onto watercolor paper, then spray Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Sprays in Lady Bug, Grape Jelly and Bamboo Leaves in different areas. The water will help these inks spread and blend on the paper.
Stamp the girl image with Jet Black StazOn ink. I decided to color with Prismacolor Marker Light Peach to color in the face. I colored the mouth and cheeks with Love Letter Memento Luxe ink. For the eyes, I used All-Purpose Ink in Sky Blue, for hair used Real Black and Thyme for the dress. Once all the ink is dry next fussy cut the image.
Cut out the butterflies from Rinea foil paper in various colors with either a die or a punch.
Adhere the girl image onto the card with On Point Glue. On Point Glue is perfect for these small pieces. Glue the butterflies to the top of her hair and forehead.
Stamp the sentiment “Free Your Mind”. Assemble card and add any additional personal touches.
