  1. Using the butterfly die, cut six butterflies to create the base of the pendant using a Big Shot or similar machine. Glue two sets of three cut outs together. Glue two eye hooks to the top corners of one set, then glue the two sets together. Paint the back and sides with Lamp Black.
  1. Using the Creative Palette, apply multiple drops of Cadmium Yellow, Tangelo Orange, and True Red onto the palette. Spread with brayer. Place the media paper into the paint, then lift.. Using a toothbrush and thinned paint, splatter randomly with True Red. Allow to dry
  1. Place the stamp from the kit onto an acrylic handle. Dampen a cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Pour a puddle of Lamp Black out on the palette paper. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Pounce the sponge onto the stamp and stamp onto the colorized paper. The details should be easily seen and not be too dark. Stamp the butterfly a second time. Cut both images out with the die. Float to shade the butterfly with Lamp Black. Coat with matte medium to seal.
  1. Mix the resin following the manufacturer’s instructions and coat the image. Sprinkle some glitter into the resin. Allow to harden overnight.
  1. Glue crystals to center of butterfly. Add charms, beads, and chain of choice using jump rings.

Instructions:

  1. The prep for the metal is time consuming, but the metal must be prepped properly so the paint will not come off. Clean the black tin with vinegar and water, wipe dry with cheesecloth. Apply one thin coat of Paint Adhesion medium over the entire surface with a large brush. Clean brush immediately with soap and water. Allow to completely dry. Mix together equal parts of the basecoat color, Fawn, with the Paint Adhesion Medium. Basecoat the entire surface using a large 1″ brush. Allow this to completely dry. It will take longer because of the medium. Do not rush this step. Apply the basecoat color again. Allow to dry and apply two more time.
  1. Randomly drybrush Shimmering Silver, Rich Espresso, and Copper to the base and shade. This will completely cover the original Fawn base. Base 2/3 of a sheet of mixed media paper with Shimmering Silver and the other 1/3 with Royal Ruby.
  1. Place the text stamp onto acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with Lamp Black. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire image and stamp it onto the surface. Reload and continue stamping the entire surface.
  1. Load the clock stamp onto a handle. Load with Lamp Black and stamp onto silver section of the paper twice with this stamp, reloading between impressions. Reload and stamp onto the shade three times, spacing it equally around the shade. Cut out the clocks then cut about 1/3 off the top of them and set to the side. Stamp the architectural stamp three times on the silver section. Stamp the Bird Gears once on the silver section and once on the ruby section. Cut out all images and set to the side.
  1. Stamp the Bird Gears onto two wide sections of the base with Lamp Black.
  2. In this order, glue the paper clock pieces to the narrow sides of the base, the architectural elements to the base and shade, gears and cogs overlapping some of the paper pieces, and finally the geared bird over one of the original impressions. Add the silver wing and eye to this bird.
  1. Allow to cure 24 hours and then coat with matte varnish.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the surface with sealer, sand, then wipe with dampened cheese cloth. Note, it is important that there are not any areas with high wood grain. Sand until smooth. Basecoat entire surface with Snow White. Apply multiple coats until smooth and even. Apply a thin coat of matte varnish to the entire box. This will protect the work you have already done plus allow for easy clean-up for the next step.
  1. Place the pair stamp onto acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with Lamp Black. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire image and stamp it on the far left side of the surface. If you don’t like what you have stamped simply wipe it off with a wet wipe! Since you already have a coat of varnish on the surface, it will clean up easily.
  2. To stamp a mirror image of the single chair you will need a Creative Palette. I like the Creative Palette Rectangles because they are the perfect size to fit on a large handle. Load the stamp with paint and stamp it onto the Creative Palette that has been mounted to a handle. Quickly stamp it onto the heavy paper. Cut out as close to the lines as possible and adhere to the right side of the surface with matte medium.
  1. Shade each color with full strength paint using a flat brush. Float to highlight with White to the chairs and water. The background is washed with Sand and then floated with Coral Shell + Traditional Raw Sienna (3:1).
  1. Use a MicroPerm marker to add additional lines to indicate grass and water. Reinforce any lines that you might have covered during the painting process..
  1. Allow to cure 24 hours and then coat with matte varnish.
