Gingersnaps Creations Encouragement Magnets Swap

Art themed magnets

I’m participating in the US portion of the Encouragement Magnets swap at Gingersnaps Creations group. I started with Staples magnet sheets (could be printed with an inkjet printer) and trimmed it to ATC size (2.5″x3.5″). I cut a Bristol pad (Strathmore) sheet to ATC size and attached them to the magnets with Elmer’s Dual Tip quick drying glue. The images are from Gecko Galz Pre-Raphaelite collage pages, except the artiste who is from the GeckoGalz Gibson Girls collage sheet. She was colored with Staedtler colored pencils and trimmed out. The paintbrush is made with a toothpick, hair (someone got a trim recently ;p), glue, dental floss tape & acrylic paint. The sentiment is stamped with Forest Green Stazon ink and cut out. The elements were applied and then trimmed to stay within the ATC size. The flowers on the others were from American Crafts. There’s some gold leaf. The sentiments are stamped with Palette hybrid ink in Noir Black on vellum. The leaves are cut with Slice Vintage elements card and Bazzill Basics cardstock.  I hope the recipients will enjoy them and thanks to Ali for hosting the US portion of the swap.

Dream as if you'd live forever. Live as if you'd die today.

joy is the feeling of grinning on the inside
