Phrenology Altered Beer Mat by Mandy C



Old Book Page
Beer Mat


·       Cover the beer mat with the old book page. I used double sided tape for this.

·       Begin with Mustard Seed Distress Paint in the centre of the beer mat, then a bit of pink, blend together. Add more yellow in the centre. Add the Salty Ocean Distress Paint around the edge. Dry with a heat tool.

·       Using Black Archival and the ‘postcard’ stamp from the PaperArtsy Stamp Set, stamp it at angels across the whole of the background. Dry with a heat tool.

·       Stamp random harlequin patterns using the Salty Ocean and the Dylusions Basic Backgrounds set of stamps. 

·       On the stamping card, stamp out the phrenology head with the beaded trim on. I really struggled to get a decent image with the Archival - I would recommend VersaFine Black Onyx for stamping these Lynne Perrella images. Heat set with a heat tool, before you begin to colour with your watercolour pencils.

·       Stamp the hearts twice and tear out. Colour. Edge with Chalk Ink ~ Night Sky.

·       Glue the stamped images onto the beer mat using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

·       Edge with the black Archival.

·       Finally add some Glossy Accents to the heats and the buttons on the images.
