Hi everyone 😀

Do you get the Newsletter from All That Scraps?

It’s a free weekly email where each design team member  takes a turn to feature a project, product focus or technique each week. This week was my turn! Actually my first newsletter for ATS!

I have to say I was totally OVER THE MOON for my project 😀 I hope you like it too!

I like to call it Faux Painted Glass


I have always LOVED the painted glass items I see in stores. They often are expensive, and aren’t always in designs that I would choose to put in my home, or give as a gift. Given the fact I personally cannot even draw a stick figure, I cannot even attempt to paint my own! Another great reason “I” am a stamper.
I have also attempted to stamp on glass. Have you?

 While I have been successful, it is time consuming, and when you have uneven glass, or rounded edges, it borders impossible at times. For anything uneven the image won’t appear, and with the glass being slippery, you can easily smudge if you are new to this method of stamping, leaving MOST people too frustrated to attempt it again.
Well, when I saw the Grafix Rub Ons in the store I thought that MAYBE that was my solution to the LOOK of painted glass, that I could actually EASILY customize!
I was right! The Grafix Rub Ons worked like a charm!
I just followed the instructions that come with the product, and in MINUTES I had my beautiful glass Olive Oil jar!  There is also a link on the product to view a video on HOW TO, but I didn’t need it.

I will fill my bottle with something else, like bath oil or something…….not sure.
Now instead of colored ink I used a juicy white StazOn ink pad, then carefully brushed on my shimmery pastels for the colors you see. The Poppin Acetate Technique can be seen —-> HERE <—- and/or —> HERE <—

This gave my finished project a little shimmer 😀

Stamped, and punched my tag, and was done!

What do you think??

Not too bad for a couple bucks!

The image that is stamped ends up being against the glass, so you don’t have to worry about the shimmery pastels coming off! Obviously you wouldn’t soak or SCRUB this bottle, like anything with a rub-on. Just hand clean and gently dry the outside.

You can also stamp in colored permanent ink like Pallette inks, or you can stamp and color them with Copic’s or other permanent markers.

 I want to also remind you that you will end up with a mirror image! So NO WORDS! Unless you print them from the printer-backwards!

There are SOOOOOO many possibilities! I have a special project using Rub Ons in a super cool way, for a FAB gift-but for that you have to wait till the 25th! SORRY :C
Hope you get to give it a try!

See you back here tomorrow!
