At craft group on Wednesday, Janet (our leader, in the nicest way) had a project to do a altered Ikea frame(idea originally from craft Stamper). We cut with help 40 1.1/4 inch squares (mount board, the original had stamp-board ready cut squares, it depends on your budget as to what you use) and coloured them with inks. Then stamped an image on each one, then a swipe with a embossing ink pad and a coat of clear embossing powder. That's as far as I got on Wednesday, I did another coat of embossing powder which I think is better and even another coat would be good. But I had a time constraint, as it was for my son's girl friend and she is going back to the states next week-end. You arrange the squares in a pleasing arrangement that is the most difficult part of the task, you can use an adhesive of your choice, glossy accents was suggested. I thought that would be to expensive but in fact you use so little it is not. You would spray a clear vanish over the top, masking as require. I was pleased with it and my son's girl friend really liked it. It has set me off on all sorts of thoughts for altered art projects.
