It was meant to be
Happy Labor Day, my friends!
I have a quick project that I want to share with you. As usual, I wanted to use an image from The Graphics Fairy because it’s Brag Monday. I had an idea in mind that required a label of hers. I wanted to incorporate it into a pendant.
The image I used was faded to begin with, but I thought it would work out. After coating the image with Mod Podge and DG3 Art Gel, I left it alone until this morning (yes, it’s true-I know). As I was drinking my second cup of coffee, I looked and realized that the image had disappeared! Poof-just gone! It must have been some strange chemical reaction…
Now what do I do? I looked over some other images that I had of hers, and chose another label with a little more color, printed it and cut it out. I knew I needed to try another approach to sealing the image.
I pressed the copy into a clear emboss it ink pad, coated it with clear embossing powder and hit it with my heat tool. I used the art gel to adhere it to the pendant. Here she is!
You’ve got to love a happy accident!
