Labels made with Shrinky dinks

I made some labels with Shrinky Dinks (also called Krimpie Dinkie or polyshrink, shrink a dink etc). First make your drawing with a permanent marker. The seize I used was 10 x 18 cm (!), that will give labels of 4 x 7 cm(!). After doodling, I gave them some color with colored pencils. Then you have to bake them for about 3 minutes, but look on the package for the exact time. O, and don't forget to punch holes in them before that!!

This was the original drawing on the shrink folie.
These labels are fun to use with a handmade book or a present.

Pulling Prints with Michelle Ward

Pulling prints with a stash of index cards (100 in a pack!) Not all of them works of art.

Surprising results with acetate forms, I think I will add some writing, they will make great postcards.

The challenge 39 'Pulling Prints' of the Street Team this time is about making prints with forms of tyvek on index cards with acrylic paint. This technique is called monoprint and each print is a unique one. The two below ones are indeed made with tyvek forms, but the tyvek came from an envelope and I found it too thin, so I made new forms with acetate. The two top ones are made with acetate, I think it went a lot better. I really made a lot of prints and most ones didn't come out rather well, but it is a real learning experience. You have to find out how wet the paint must be and how hard you must press. I did two sessions. I have a great stash of cards now I can use for collage or doodling.
If you want to check out this challenge and take part go to Michelle Ward.
