Sunday Snippets!

ZZproject20410

Morning all! A quick one from me today as I am off to shop and chat at Stamperama in Stevenage! Yup ... that's right no working ... just shopping! If you play nicely while I am out ... I may pop back and show you what I buy :0)

Okay ... so here we go with this week's questions ...

Will you be doing another class featuring the laced album thingy? I 've never managed to get on a class yet!

I think the picture shows the thingy you are referring to and I have no plans to re-do this class this time around ... however ... that is not to say ... I won't do it again in the future!ZZproject2a0110

When you fill the aperture on the bookplates with glossy accents how do you get it to stay in there? Mine always cracks and comes away from the bookplate and then starts to break up!

Okay ... this is where more is definitely more ... I put the bookplate in place ... just with the brads ... then I make sure I am on a very flat surface ... I fill the whole book plate so the Crackle Accents is rounded over the top. The Crackle accents will self level and if you leave it over night ... you should have a wonderful cracked effect by morning!

SSS11608 Wondering how you get your metal pieces so red? With Alcohol ink?

Yup ... that is right ... I use alcohol ink ... Red Pepper on this one ... but I use the nib of the bottle as the applicator and literally go direct to the metal ... if you are planning on trying it ... make sure you do it on your craft sheet and it does take a few moments longer to dry ... but the colour is much more intense!

Well that is me people ... Have a wonderful Sunday ... whatever you are doing ... I shall either see you later with my shopping or tomorrow with the new Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!

Laters!

Have a great day at Stamperama. I love these Q&A's on Sunday, you should call it "An Audience with THE Linda Elborne" ;)
I have a question.... Do you buy the screen panels ready cut or do you cut them yourself?

I'm a bit late Linda (was busy yesterday with h....k)but thanks very much for answering my question and the others.

These makes are totally fab and just thought I'd tell you my Mum nabbed my black and red hangy thing that I made on the one and only class I have managed to get to. She loved it so much she asked for it in lieu of a birthday card, Lol!

Hugs
