While browsing one of my favorite craft sites, I stumbled upon the news that Sizzix had published a new book. The title intrigued me – “Upcycle with Sizzix.” I looked it up on Amazon and the book was not available on Kindle (as of Feb. 2015), so I checked out Barnes and Noble. Lo and behold the book was available for purchase. So I ordered it and it arrived several days later.
The book is richly packed with photos, illustrations and ideas for all types of crafters. Although the book is not a tutorial, the ideas using “found elements” are presented with detailed material lists and hints.
Some of the re-cycled materials are: magazine pages, maps, sewing spools, old greeting cards and aluminum.
The 143 page book is divided into ideas for Home Décor, Accessories, Gift Giving and Entertaining. If you are an owner of a Sizzix and you love idea books than by this book!
This month we will explore Glossy Finish Mod Podge. This finish is quick-drying for multiple coat build up. Like the original Matte, it dries clear, cleans up easily with soap and water. It is classified as an all-in-one glue, sealer and gloss finish. It can be used on the following surfaces: canvas, glass, ceramics, paper, paper mache, plastic, styrfoam, wood and metal.
