So, last night THE MAN was sitting at my desk and I was putting a few things away in my scrap area. I had in my hands a nice little tub of fresh plaster and I told him it was a great gift.
He was running out to the hardware store one day, asked if I needed anything and brought me back some plaster. I did have a few holes to patch in the wall, but I had a hunch it might work on paper and altered items. It so did!
I wish you could see how very cool it looks in real life. It's very embossed.
Shirley bought me this awesome template from The Crafter's Workshop recently and I have been itching to use it. Love the clocks. It is reminding me to take some time for pampering!!!
Basically, laid it flat over my paper and used a piece of heavy cardstock to push the plaster into the stencil. Let it dry, inked it up, and then sprayed with clear acrylic to hold it all together and...while the spray was wet, dropped on some glitter. You can kinda see the sparkle in this photo.
You can certainly see the sparkle on my green frame there with the words "Pedi" and there is a good reason I'm using GREEN on the little metal frame I inked up. I'm linking this page up to Our Creative Corner and their weekly challenge.
You will notice that they are asking also for recycled items on this page.
Besides the small piece of canvas I used up, I threw some pop dot foam that was pretty nasty under my material/photo to make it stand out.
And, about the page! Love love LOVE Pedicures!! The girl that gives them is great with massage and you walk way feeling like a million bucks!
