Well, here's something wierd to share with you! I've been playing around again -- with glue!!! Plain ole white glue!!! Here's the results of some of what I've done:
Doesn't look like much does it? Oh, well, maybe you'll appreciate it more when you see the cards I made with it:
On this card, I drizzled and dried white glue, added gold and bronze embossing powder and heated it with the embossing gun. Once cool, I could cut it, punch it or tear it into differernt shapes. The key tag is made of metal; I stamped the key onto the metal using Black Versamark ink. The key and lock on the right-bottom side of the card are also metal which I cut out from a template on my Big Shot. I used a scrap piece of torn paper behind the metal key tag and smudged it with alcohol inks and edged it with Expresso color ink, added some Stickles (of course) and popped on a tassel. I really like this card!!!
I didn't complete the inside of this card because I'm going to personalize it, just don't know yet who I'm giving it to -- lol! However, I do know I'm calling this card "Keys" and the inside will read: "Keys can open many doors, but let the door to your heart be the first to be opened". I like that! Don't you?
Here's the outside and inside of the other card made with the second sample of my glue concoction:
Kind of reminds me of snow. And, yes, it's a Christmas card -- but isn't it great that it's different?!!! Again, I didn't complete this card on the inside; I actually haven't even come up with a name and/or sentiment for it yet. Any suggestions?
The glue mixture for this card was wet glue and DecoArt Glamour Dust. Once dry, it too can be cut, punched, or torn.
I also have an idea using the glue with the gold and bronze embossing powder for jewelry... uummmm, there may be some possibilities here.
Anyway, some of you die-heart Carol Duvall fans, do you remember (before she had her own show) when she used to be the weekly guest crafter on the Rob Reiner Show (I think that was his name)? Anyway, he's the same guy who produced her show. GOD! Am I that old?!!! Well, at the time, on one of those shows she had a technique using glue -- can't remember what her technique was but that ran across my mind and so I decided it might be fun to play with some myself to see what I'd come up with; it was fun and these were my projects! Tell me what you think! I think, maybe, I'd make Carol a little bit proud.
Now, I think I'm going to go play with some hot glue!!! LOL!!!
I'll be seeing you!
