1. Rub Distress Ink in long arched strokes across Gloss Paper (in a crescent shape). Immediately wipe ink into paper with a tissue over the entire sheet of paper.

2. In Melting Pot, melt Clear UTEE and mix in Perfect Pearls Interference Blue (approximately 2 Popsicle scoops). Gently mix when melted using Kool Toolz spatula.

3. Using foam brush, use long crescent strokes and brush melted mixture from Melting Pot. Cover entire paper in a circular motion. Then use Heat It Craft Tool to gently re-melt any raised areas to smooth them out. (place remaining melting pot mixture aside for later use.)

4. Trim photos to fit under Memory Glass.

5. Tack photos to glass using touch of Glossy Accents.

6. Reheat UTEE and Perfect Pearls Mixture in melting pot and dip sides of Memory Glass and picture in molten mixture. This will keep photo in place and create a nice edge around glass.

7. Mount Photo on Blue FiberMark paper and edge with BeDazzles. Then Mount on FiberMark Canvas Paper and fray edges. Mount in the Top right corner of layout.

8. Mount Glass covered pictures on bottom of page sloping in the middle.

9. In a plastic cup mix Pearl UTEE, Glossy Accents and a few Popsicle stick scoops of Heritage Gold Perfect Pearls. Mix until you got a wet sand consistency. Using Popsicle stick, spread mixture over entire bottom of page covering bottom of glass.

10. Dust mixture with Mica Flakes and press in shells.

11. Print journaling on overlay. Cut to size and mount over photo using Glossy Accents in corners.

12. Let dry overnight.

Melt Art® Seashell Bracelet

To Create the Mold

1. Take out equal parts of the Mold n’ Pour putties. Separately they are inert, but when mixed together, they chemically react to make a permanent, flexible mold. Evenly mix the putties together until they create an even colored light purple color.

2. Roll the mixed putty into a ball, removing any cracks or folds. Place on the Non-Stick Craft Sheet and push button in. Be sure not to push in too far as you don’t want it to push through the mold.

3. Allow to cure, 5-7 minutes.

To Create the “Charms”

4. Plug in Melting Pot and turn thermostat to “UTEE” setting.

5. Pour in Clear UTEE followed by Black. Note: because the Black UTEE is pigmented, adding in clear makes it more fluid for pouring into the mold.

6. Place lid on UTEE and allow to completely melt. Note: do not stir as it will cause bubbles to in the melting UTEE.

7. Once mold has cured, remove it from the button and place on the Non-Stick Craft Sheet and begin pouring the melted UTEE into the mold. Option: if making many bracelets, you may want to make more than one shell mold.

8. Allow the poured UTEE to cool and remove from the mold. See how the Mold n’ Pour shows every detail!

9. Create enough shell charms for the bracelet.
Count the number of "up" beads.

Coloring the Charms

10. Shake up Silver Pearl Metallic Inkabilities. Metallic Inkabilities are a quick-drying pigment based ink that colorizes and dries onto many non-porous surfaces such as UTEE. Because there is no solvent in it, it is also perfect for polymer clay.

11. Squeeze a small amount of Silver Pearl Inkabilities onto the Non-Stick Craft Sheet. Rub your finger into it so there is some on your finger, and lightly rub the shell UTEE charms. See how the detail pops! With a small amount of ink on your fingers, you have the ability to hit the “high” spots of the molded item so that the indentations on the design remain black, creating a more “antique” effect.

12. Add more ink to your finger as needed and color all charms.

Putting it all Together!

13. Set up shells onto the bracelet blanks in a design that is appealing to you. Place a small amount of adhesive on the bracelet blank as well as the back of the charm. Place onto blank and allow to cure.

It’s easy to create coordinating looks-create a mold from a button on an outfit (remember how many extra buttons you have that were provided when you purchased it?!) and create a wonderful ensemble!

Inkssentials™ Memory Glass™ Accordion Album
Created by Ellen Heaney

Use Memory Glass to make this clever accordion album!

1. Cut a strip of paper that is 1.75" wide, cut four squares of paper that are 2" square.
Score and crease every 1.75".

2. Ink the edges of the strip and folds of paper using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

3. This paper is double sided - working on the pink side, stamp background images using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

4. Trim and adhere photos and heart fabric embellishment to accordion strip. Arrange on both sides of accordion strip (pattern and plain pink), avoiding the panels on each end.

5. Sandwich each end of the accordion strip between two squares of paper and adhere. This is to become the front and back covers that will be behind glass. The front cover has a torn layered edge, the back cover has a layered scrap of paper with the “Dream” Dictionary sentiment stamped. Add photo to back cover.

6. Add “I love you” rub on to front cover.

7. Ink Florentine stamp with Red Pepper Dabber and stamp onto glass, allow to dry thoroughly.

8. Place Dabber stamped glass over front (left most side) of accordion, the Dabber stamped side facing in, toward the paper.

9. Open and fit the Memory Frame around the sandwich of the glass and accordion front cover. Ensure the jump ring is facing the right, and close the frame.

10. Repeat for the back cover ensuring the jump ring faces left.

11. Thread through fabric strip and tie closed.
