Using the "Scraps"!

Hi everyone, Tina here with some creations to share with you using the scraps from my die-cuts.
 I love the Artdeco Lace Frame die, not only because it's such a great design, but the scrap pieces are such cool shapes. I just knew I had to create some mixed media pieces using them. I die-cut some thin chipboard for extra dimension, and arranged the shapes in a pattern on my tag.

I applied Modelling paste through the die, using it as a stencil, then washed it immediately.

Once dry, I sprayed my tag with various mists.

I diecut and heat embossed a section of the Artdeco frame.

 This was inlaid over the misted modelling paste design.

I cut two of the Beautiful Butterfly and a Fancy Christmas Flourish , which was heat embossed.

And a few more close-ups!

I also used the Artdeco Lace Frame on this mixed media journal cover, which I'll be teaching as a class in October. 

 I added Cappucino Ornamental Lace die, Beautiful Butterfly, and Fancy Christmas Flourish, before spraying and adding other mediums.

  2. Ive just bought the artdeco lace die but I find it doesn't cut in the middle. The edges cut fine but the middle is embossed rather than cut through. Any advice? What am I doing wrong?

    1. Hi, sorry for the delay in replying, I only just saw your comment. May I ask which die it is? I always cut my intricate dies using a metal shim which makes them cut beautifully. Alternatively, try using paper/cardstock as a shim. I find that occasionally the coating may be a little thicker, and that cutting against multiple thicknesses of aluminum foil/alfoil or a softdrink can (carefully cut and opened flat) will help to remove the extra coating and sharpen the cutting edges of the die.
