I created one 12″ x 12″ Scrapbook page using a photo of my grandmother Pieteriza Cilliers Van Ellewee. (7.10.01- 7.7.1992) and copies of some of her cards. The photo was taken Circa 1919 in South Africa.
Close up of clock, which I made with hot glue and a glue gun. Scroll down to see how I made the clock. I used another clock as a mask. I soak the clock which is glued to the card-stock in water to remove ot from the card-stock.
I made the hatpins using 20 gauge wire, beads, bead caps, crimping beads, etc. You can see more of my hatpins here and the tools I use.
Close up of chip-board frame, pen-nib, etc. I distressed the Chipboard frame with acrylic paint and Elmer’s school glue to obtain a crackled paint effect.
I printed the clock on paper.
I worked on a glass sheet that I had.
Because I am working on a glass sheet I can turn it around.
I taped the template onto the glass sheet with painter’s tape. I taped wax paper over the template.
When the glue gun was hot enough, I traced the design with Hot glue on top of the wax paper.
I find it very relaxing to trace the lines.
Wait for the glue to harden.
Hint: Melt away the glue gun strings with a hairdryer.
Soak the clock in water to remove from the wax-paper and clean the back with Rubbing alcohol to remove the last bits of paper. I covered the glue with layers of acid-free paint and attached it with hot glue.
Please note, do not use Hot glue for photos, the heat and acidity can harm your photos.
