Laura always keeps her stock up-to-date but recently, have you seen all the amazing goodies in the What’s New? category, so many exciting new products.  

This week I am sharing a tag (That’s Crafty! MDF tag) featuring some new Prima products and new Dinky Stencils (Cogs and Clocks).  I also incorporated resin paper, which is fast becoming a favourite of mine.  Recently I’ve been including small pieces on my projects, this week it features more prominently.

This tag combines many textures, I adore texture so imagine the fun I had working on this! 


That's Crafty! Dinky Stencils:- Cogs Background, Clock Background
Staz-on Timber Brown
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish:- Toffee, Old Gold and French Roast
Prima Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Artisian Powder – Chapeliere, Parthenay, Vausseroux
Translucent Embossing Paste (I worked with Ranger but That’s Crafty! stock several brands)
Ice Resin*
Extras:- Vintage French book text, rusty tin wire, torn wallpaper and numbers and text stamp (I worked with PaperArtsy ESN stamps)

*If making resin paper you might want to wear rubber gloves and place rubbish bags on your work surface to protect the area. You will also require an old piece of household sponge.


Resin Paper

Lay vintage French book pages onto craft sheet. Follow manufacturer’s instructions to prepare the Ice Resin, working in a well ventilated area. With a piece of household sponge, apply the resin to the vintage book pages. The resin will need time to cure. Onto the margin of the book page, stamp numbers and time. Tear two more pieces from the page.

Paperclay & Rust Pastes

Create three paperclay elements working with paperclay. Leave to dry on flat surface.

Once dry, working with all three pots from the Rust Pastes set, apply the pastes to the paperclay elements. For the clock, I worked with a lighter hand, ensuring I retained as much of the fine detail as possible and dabbed Old Gold onto my fingertip and lightly applied to the clock, catching small areas with the paint.

Lay the elements aside for the moment.


Apply Translucent paste through Dinky Stencils, working randomly. Leave to dry before misting panel with water and scattering the various Frank Garcia powders. Continue to mist with water, apply more powders and Toffee and French Roast. Apply, in small areas only, the Rust Pastes. Dab Old Gold onto fingertip and lightly apply to stencilled areas, highlighting the relief pattern. 


Gather the resin paper and paperclay elements along with chain, jump ring, rusty tin wire and scrap of wallpaper.

Layer the resin paper elements to the tag, wrap rusty wire around tag and layer the wallpaper and stamped resin paper. Suspend clock from jump ring and chain, finally adhering the other rusted paperclay elements.

Until next time,

  9. My goodness, girl, but you do a lot of prep before you ever get to the assemblage part! I admire your patience with all the steps you take. You always impress me with the way you put a piece together and it looks so realistically vintage! This piece is truly a great work of art! I adore that watch! I have hesitated to work with ice resin due to my asthma, but really love the look it creates. This old French book page you have applied it too is a great background along with your dinky stencils to add even more depth and texture.
