06:35
Today I will show you how to make a wire wrapped sea glass pendant using supplies from Papermart: http://www.papermart.com/Home?origin=thefrugalcrafter You will need: Sea Glass 20 gauge wire wire cutters and needle nose pliers 2mm satin Rat-Tail cord: http://www.papermart.com/colored-rat-tail-cord/id=10620?origin=thefrugalcrafter Kraft jewelry boxes: http://www.papermart.com/natural-kraft-jewelry-boxes/id=11230?origin=thefrugalcrafter scissors and a lighter Directions: Cut 12" of wire. Make a loop 2" from the end. Holding the loop at the top of a piece of beach glass start wrapping the long tail around while trapping the short tail under the wire in the back. Pull the long tail back to the top and wrap around the loop for security. Wrap extra wire into a decorative spiral and press against the back or you can trim it off. Cut 30" of cord and slid pendant on. Tie each end to the opposing side with a surgeons knot. Tie the loose ends in a overhand knot close to the surgeons knot, trim and burn ends.

how to make any size easel card
 
04:00
Here is the simple formula for making an easel card in any size. Cut a long piece of cardstock and fold it in half, then fold one end to the middle (scoring the paper first makes it neat and tidy.) The half with the fold makes the easel part, then you can glue a panel of carstock to the small section at the end of the cardstock. Watch the video and it will all make sense. Let me know if you have any questions.

Tips for using cheap clear stamps with dye ink and markers PLUS embossing!
 
06:46
Tips for using cheap clear stamps with dye ink and markers PLUS embossing! I usually prefer rubber stamps or high quality photo-polymer stamps but I have to admit I love cheap clear sillicone stamps too. They are an affordable option for trendy designs that you want to have a crafty fling with. And if you do most of your shopping at a big box craft store they might be all that's available. The downside to these stamps is that they often don't ink up very well and if you like to use markers or dye based ink like I do you can be out of luck....nah, I'll show you how to overcome this in today's tutorial! Supplies: cheap clear stamp mounting block dye ink pads waterbased markers paper or cardstock (the following 3 supplies are only needed for embossing) clear embossing ink pad OR a make up sponge and glycerin clear embossing powder heat tool Step 1: scuff the stamp (inking surface) with a fine emery board or pink pearl eraser. Step 2: Apply ink and stamp *This usually does the trick for inkpads but not always for markers if the stamp has a large solid area. To emboss with dye ink or marker takes an extra step and product. You will need an embossing clear inkpad or a make up sponge and glycern. Stamp the image in the color you want, then clean the stamp and ink it up in clear ink (aka glycern) and stamp over your design taking care to line up the image perfectly. Add embossing powder, tap off the excess, and heat. Not bad for cheap stamps eh?

glycerin 101 for crafters!
 
07:46
Sorry it has taken me so long to compile a list of all of the great uses for glycerin in the craft room. Glycerin is a watersoluble plant based oily liquid that is a main ingredient in many of your art supplies. You can buy Glycerin at a pharmacy or a health food store or in the cake decorating aisle of the craft store (but that is the most expensive way) or if you need a lot of it you can purchase it through a soap making supplier online. Uses: Reinking embossing stamp pads. Use as is or with a wee bit of water to reink clear embossing pads or mix with gouche paint and make your own pigment reinker. Here is a video on making your own pigment ink: http://youtu.be/vah1ii4mZYQ Add a few drops to your acrylic paint rince water to increase open time and workability with acrylic paints. It makes your water wetter! Refill your blending pens and waterbased markers! Video: http://youtu.be/vmOJLBjF5LQ Add a teaspoon of glycerin to a 4oz spray bottle of water and you have dye based ink refresher, shake before using. Make a permanent gelli plate, sciency-weincy video: http://youtu.be/h9taUh073vQ Be sure to read the video description for updated recipe! Add a couple drops of glycern to student grade watercolor paint in a palette to is does not dry out too much. There you go, a fairly complete list, If I think of anything else I'll let you know!

How to Stretch Watercolor Paper (cheap & easy method!)
 
06:34
Today I am going to show you how to stretch your watercolor paper so it will stay perfectly flat when you paint on it. The advantage of stretching you paper is that you can use less expensive thinner papers without them buckling when wet. This will save you a considerable amount of money. Today I will stretch 90# Fabriano watercolor paper, it is a lovely student grade paper and a real bargain. I got a 75 sheet pad of 9"x12" paper for $15 a while ago but Blick has the 9x12 pad of 75 sheets $21 and the larger one is $26 at Blick online and since they are not on sale you can use a coupon on them too, here is the link: http://www.dickblick.com/products/fabriano-studio-watercolor-pads/ (I don't get anyhing if you buy them, just sharing:) I got the gummed tape at a butcher shop but you can get it at any packaging store. Papermart has it too but it is in large quantities:) http://www.papermart.com/CombinedSearch?SearchStr=gummed%20tape?origin=thefrugalcrafter Supplies: 90lb watercolor paper gummed paper tape a spray bottle of water or a vat of water a sponge a board to stretch the paper on like hardboard or a paneling sample (free from a hardware store!) To begin wet the board with a sponge. The wet the back of the paper with a spray bottle of water (or by soaking it in a tub of cold water) and lay the paper on the board. If you use a spray bottle you will need to we the front of the paper st this time. Then use the sponge to wipe over the paper and smooth out any bubbles and soak up any extra water. Tear or cut the gummed tape to the lengths of the sides, wet the back of the tape with the spray bottle or sponge and center over the board and edge of paper. Lay flat to dry completely then it is ready to use. To remove the paper later I cut inside the tape to release the paper then tear off the tape from the board, soaking if necessary to remove it.

Free spill proof water buckets: Use Tofu or mushroom packaging as water containers. They are free, won’t tip over and the ridges on the bottom and sides with gently clean pigment from your brush! 2. *Bonus tip: Use single or dual pet food bowls from the dollar store for a truly non spill water bucket for children! 3. Need a place to keep your paint? Recycle an old eyeshadow compact or pill box for a portable palette! (Link) https://youtu.be/OXfC3IUliJg 4. Credit card scraper: Cut up an old credit card or plastic gift card and use it to scrape, scratch or squeegee your paint around when makinging rocks, trees and grasses. 5. Rubber band brush: Bundle a bunch of rubber bands together for a funky brush to paint foliage with! 6. Cut up kitchen sponge: A cut up kitchen sponge and be used to tap on trees or bushes or stamp on bricks and rocks. You can even keep a small piece of sponge in your paint palette to wipe you brush on. 7.also while you are in the kitchen plastic wrap makes a cool texture when left to dry in watercolor and 8. salt in a watercolor wash looks cool too! 9. Toothbrush splatter tool: Why buy a pricey spatter tool when you can get better results from an old toothbrush, just load it up with paint and drag your finger or a craft stick across the bristles. Use wetter paint for bigger spatters and dryer one for tiny specks. 10. Rubbing alcohol makes cool bubble like effects in a wet wash 11.Less Sticky masking tape: Taping down your paper is a good practice to keep it from bucking as you paint. The low tack or artist tape is pricey so buy your tape at the dollar store and stick it to your clothing before your paper. The tip will pick up lint from your clothes so it will be less sticky and won’t rip your precious watercolor paper. 12. DIY Watercolor block: Watercolor blocks are great because you don’t need to tape down your paper but that convenience comes at a price. You can make your own buy cutting your paper to size along with a sheet of cardboard and gluing the edges. I have a tutorial here (link) https://youtu.be/ES-8T0GlmVo 13. Keep the whites with wax! Use a clear or white crayon, candle or hunk of canning wax to preserve white areas of your painting, just apply it to your dry watercolor paper in areas you want to be white before you begin painting. 14. Masking fluid dish soap trick: Make sure you don’t ruin your brushes when you use masking fluid, first coat your brush with dish soap or bar soap and then apply as usual. *It’s a good idea to mark that brush as a masking fluid only brush too. 15. Keeping your supplies identified: If you travel to class with your supplies you will want to make sure you don’t lose them or go home with someone else. Here are some ideas for marking them: 1. Stick on one of the free return address labels that you get in the mail, 2 use nailpolish on the ends of your brushes 3 find a pretty washi tape and mark all of your tools with that but be sure you go over it with clear tape so it stays. 15 Watercolor Hacks (cheap or free!)

How To Refill Micron and Pitt Artist Pens
 
06:11
***Please note that refilling your pens with india ink will make them suitable for use under watercolors or waterbased markers. Alcohol based markers and pens may smear india ink though so proceed at your own risk:) Today I will show you how to refill your Pigma Micron and Pitt artist pens. You will need India ink, a pipette, pliers and the pen you wish to refill. For micron pens you need to gently pull out the silver nib holder and drop about 5 drops of ink in. Replace the nib holder.

Also you can use the clear solution (glycern + water) to make your markers blend better enven if they are new but you are not happy with the way they blend (you probably have the ingredients in your kitchen!) fore more money saving crafty tips visit my blog: http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com Recipe for marker ink: 1 Teablespoon glycern, 1 tablesppon water, 1 teaspoon gum arabic (if you have it, it makes the ink more glossy and blendable like the new tim holtz distress markers) you can leave it out and it will be like regular marker ink. Add reinker to the mix if you need it! about 3 drops per marker to start :) Music credit (if music is present in video) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
Thin detailed die cutting tips
 
07:50
I decided to practice cutting with my thin Cheery Lynn doily die and come up with a technique that will work every time. I made a metal shim from some flashing I fund in my garage but you can use a piece of cardboard for a shim if needed. Tips: 1. Always cut thin dies with the blades facing up. 2. Turn the die and cut again to make sure all of the die areas receive equal pressure. 3. Rub the die with wax paper before cutting. 4. Tape the paper to the die so it does not shift as you cut. This is really important with the intricate dies that require multiple passes through the machine.

Make_a_permanent_gelatin_plate_AKA_hectograph
 
09:20
PLEASE READ!!! Due to some molding in some users plates omit the alcohol and replace it with glycerin. For Example 3cups water, 3 cups glycerin, 12 Tablespoons gelatin. Adding sugar to the mix will help preserve the plate too so I'm told but I have not tried that yet. I found an alternative recipe with sugar here: http://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.com/2013/05/how-to-make-gelli-plate-or-jelly-pad.html if you want to see hers, it was posted after I made this video otherwise I would have tried her recipe first instead of coming up with my own:) http://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blogspot.com/2013/05/how-to-make-gelli-plate-or-jelly-pad.html Hey friends! I was overwhelmed by the response to yesterday's video that I had to play a bit more and figured out how to make a non-spoiling gel printing plate, AKA gelatin plastic or a Hectograph. I can't say for sure that it is the same as a Gelli Plate but it works as well as a regular gelatin plate and it won't mold or rot. If it gets too beat up, cut or scratched (used & abused) just clean it and melt it for 1 minute in your microwave on high and reset it, easy peasy! Here is the recipe: 6 Tablespoons geletin (7 packets) 1 1/2 Cups water 1 1/2 cup glycerin I dissolved the geliten in the alcohol/glycern then added the boiling water but you can just mix it all up and microwave it for a minute, don'tcha love something this easy, I do! Also, here is UK Maryanne's post about making gelli tools with funfoam (she's stinkin' brilliant!) http://scrappystickyinkymess.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/more-paper-tools-and-something-else/ And my blog, I hope to have up some finished gelatin print projects this weekend: http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/ Music credit (if music is present in video) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

I learned this technique (stamping through stencils and brushing with a stipple brush) from Judo of Judikins: http://www.judikins.com/ and she said she did not mid at all if I used this technique in a video, well thanks ma'am, I ran with the idea and came up with some fun backgrounds that you can try with whatever stamps and stencils you already have!

framing: how_to_cut_a_mat
 
05:09
It is easy to cut a professional looking beveled edge picture frame mat. All you need is a handheld bevel cutter (Logan push style 2000 is the one I use and it cost $20-$25, Blick Art Materials sells them online with the blades) http://www.dickblick.com/products/logan-hand-held-cutters/ mat board, a craft knife or Logan strait cutter, a yardstick and a scrap of cardboard to use a cutting surface. I reccomend the hand held cutter/yardstick combo over the mat cutting machines because it is chaeper and you can cut larger sizes (any size you like) with a handheld cutter. If you are frail the machines might be easier but they are also large and need more storage space where as I can keep my cutter in a drawer.

Avery Elle vs Cheap CD Pockets for Die/Stamp Storage As promised I have a comparison of the Avery Elle die storage pockets vs the cheap CD envelopes I got on amazon The CD pockets were smaller and the sides are not as strong as the Avery Elle but I think they will do nicely for lighter duty storage.

The Avery Elle Pockets are available at Hallmark Scrapbook for $7 http://hallmarkscrapbook.com/products/avery-elle-stamp-die-storage-pockets-set-of-25.html?aff=4 And the Smaller CD pockets are available are Amazon in a pack of 500 for $18 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004BU0L4K If you have any comparable pockets to share please let me know in the comments:) Avery Elle vs Cheap CD Pockets for Die/Stamp Storage Sign Up For The Frugal Crafter News! https://tinyletter.com/thefrugalcrafter For Sponsorships or Product Reviews: http://famebit.com/u/thefrugalcrafterLindsayWeirich SUBSCRIBE! http://www.youtube.com/user/thefrugalcrafter?sub_confirmation=1 Follow along and have fun!

Inktense Palette
 
02:20
I was intrigued by the new Inktense travel pan set by Derwent but it seemed really silly to add it to my collection when I already had inktense blocks and pencils. I have the full set of the inktense blocks plus a set of 12 so I decided to take some of my duplicate colors and put them in an old palette to create something similar to this set: https://amzn.to/2JOzi9G The new inktense pan set runs about $42 buy you can set a set of 36 intense blocks for the same price: https://amzn.to/2ERlxDs and you can use them like pans in the tin they come in so I think the blocks are a better deal. That said the inktense pencils are my favorite, I find them more useful: https://amzn.to/2J0nmjQ I want to mention the neat thing about the store bought inktense palette is that they chose only lightfast colors (not all inktense colors are lightfast) and they picked colors that will mix well.

review gelatos vs gelsticks
 
09:08
A couple of weeks ago I posted a tutorial on using Faber Castell Gel Sticks. A product similar to Faber Castell Gelatos that was designed for kids. The fine folks at Faber Castel sent me some real Gelatos so I could test them out and see if they are any different than the Gel Sticks (and worth 3 times the price!) Here I try out the Gelatos vs Gel sticks live to tape. Both products are lovely, but, are they different? Watch and see... Disclaimer: I am not a chemist. I am an artist and crafter. This is my opinion. I do not know what the chemical makeup is of either of these products. My review is based on the color, feel, look and working properties of the Gel Sticks vs Gelatos. Both products are made by Faber Castell. I do know both of the products are non-toxic though, I asked:) Music credit (if music is present in video) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
