This page was made using HEAT! I used two different embossing techniques: a stencil-resist technique to create texture and interest on the background, and a “chalkboard” technique (using a special type of embossing powder and real chalk) on black paper to create the “Smile” add-on. I used my new melting pot with beeswax to create the three smaller tags, and my melting pot with Utee (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) to create the large tag, the glass slide, the metalized butterfly, the faux wax seal, and the embossed text. Other materials used include: embossing plates, perfect pearls, glass slide, Archival ink, Distress Inks with blending tools, chalk, fibers, mica fragments, acrylic paint.
