this weekend, had me searching for my ancient glue gun. When I saw what she was doing, I immediately told her that I was SO going to have to give it a go.
What the heck am I rambling about? well, follow along and you will see..... I am betting that you too, will soon be playing with your glue guns.
All I needed was a glue gun, hot melt sticks and some baking parchment
this gun is quite old and doesn't really work very well. I had to really SQUEEZE hard to get the glue to flow but I was determined to play.
I taped my parchment paper down to my cement floor......used the flowing glue to draw spirals....as soon as it cools... in just minutes, you can peel the whole thing off the paper and get to the playing part....(instant gratification!)
I laid my newly created stencil onto some plain white fabric
I did not have any "spray-able" paints so I had a good (well turns out not so good) idea to create some by adding paint to water in a spray bottle...it was actually too thin but I carried on
decided to mix up some paint a little thicker and dab areas using some nice sea sponges
Because it started out a little wet, the result is subtle.... but actually....really kinda cool
but wait!!...there is more....you could ALSO use this as a big rubber stamp...OR.... how about what I did next.
I placed my glue spirals onto a piece of (I dunno) the stuff that keeps things from slipping. It is a kind of rubbery vinyl weave used in cupboards, under rugs....and so on. Anyway..the idea is just to keep your glue stencil from moving around.....and voila you have a rubbing plate
okay...so, you KNOW I am going to be playing with this ....gotta go get me a new glue gun
Nina Marie invited me to link this to her "Off The Wall Fridays"
....pop on over and see what fun and creative things others are up to.
