Learn How To Upcycle Old Computer Parts Into A Beautiful Collage

StazOn ink has always been one of my favorite for mixed media projects, but the addition of StazOn Pigment has been a true game changer. I used the ink on several surfaces for this Teal and Magenta upcycled project, and I simply love the outcome of the StazOn Pigment ink on these surfaces.

Skill: Intermediate/Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Ink the resin wings using a sponge dauber with StazOn Pigment Peacock Feathers.


Step 2

Ink a metal disk by lightly tapping the ink pad onto the metal repeatedly. I did not cover the entire surface but left some open spaces.


Step 3

Once the ink on the disk is dry, stamp flower images onto the disk using Snowflake StazOn Pigment ink. Note: The ink pulled some of the pink ink off the metal leaving a silver flower impression which looked quite amazing.


Step 4

Die-cut white cardstock leaves and color them using your ink pads with the direct to paper method.


Step 5

Color flowers using All-Purpose inks on choice.


Step 6

Adhere the die-cut leaves, wings, and flowers to your metal disk using gel medium. Add thread, gold glitter, and other elements to finish off your project.
