It’s my turn to host the Mix-ability challenge on Splitcoast this week!

The challenge is “Smooth Like Glass” – use glass, acetate or some sort of a glaze on your project. Play along with me! You can see the details HERE.

I used a fun keychain, charms and from Craft Fantastic, watercolors from QoR Modern Watercolors and stamps from the Sizzix Framelits Tags & Words set for my project (see full supply list below).

Dream Keychain Jeanne_Streiff

I started out adding some watercolorpaints randomly on watercolor paper. After that dried I added a bit of watered down acrylic paint. Once that dried I stamped my sentiment  with Jet Black Archival ink – important that the ink be waterproof so that it doesn’t smear when you add your glass. After stamping the sentiment I added a little Stickles glitter. Let dry completely before the next step.Mix Jeanne_Streiff

Add a generous amount of Fantastic Glaze & Glue to the back of the glass (Long Glass Rectangle) and position glass over sentiment. After it sets a couple minutes wipe of any extra glue around edges. Let dry completely.

Mixability and Craft Fantastic!

This is my card for this week’s Mix-ablity Challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge was to use Spring images or colors.

My background was made with a splattered and watercolored grid sheet (a little gesso first). Thank You Jeanne_Streiff

Add a drop of Fantastic Glaze & Glue. Press glass on to image (or in this case my color testing scrap), let sit a minute and then wipe off excess. Let dry completely and then cut around glass with scissors.Thank You gem 2
