Welcome to another Jessica Sporn Stencil Test Drive!
I have used Jessica Sporn's Frame stencil
(Frames Sporn Stencil L181)
in my Daily and in my Teach Book several times.
In an effort to mix it up a little
I thought of a way to make jewelry
with some retro....
I used the rough side of the plastic
and StazOn Ink...
and sponged a few frames till I got the size I wanted.
I used some Melody Ross phrase stamps
from the Unity Stamp Company on the shiny front side.
Important......Stazon Ink will dry and not rub off here.
But don't touch it while wet!!!! Let it dry!
Markers gave the back, rough side an aged look.
(they will darken when they shrink)
Don't forget to make a hole if you want to hang them.
A regular size hole punch shrinks to the perfect size.
You can shrink them the traditional way in the oven
following the directions on the package...
But I don't usually do anything traditionally.
I whipped out my trusty heat gun and tweezers.
Yes. It works.
Just heat it slowly.....
and make sure you have ventilation in the room.
(Open the window)
Remember that Shrinky Dinks shrink!
They go from THIS size.................. To THAT size.........
in a matter of minutes!
Add some o rings.....
String them up.....
See them shine.....
There you have it....
Ready to wear.
