I had so much fun making magnets with Kim’s Magnetize It tutorial at Club Anya & Friends, I wanted to try to make some other fun stuff using the same idea! I decided to use Tim Holtz round/oval “Fragments” to make some fun TGF charms.
1. Stamp out the images you want to use. In this case I used the fabulous Miss Anya’s, some TGF sentiments and random accessory stamps.
2. Trace the outline of the fragment pieces you want to use around your stamped image
3. Color in the area inside of the pencil line, extending slightly beyond it just in case
4. If you use dark colors such as black or blue, Glossy Accents (GA) will make the color run, so use a piece of clear packing tape to cover your image, I did this with the black haired Anya. It take the GA longer to dry and it can slip and slide if you jostle it, but it will keep your colors looking good!
5. Cover your image in a good coating of GA, better too much than too little
6. Place your Fragment pieces over your GA, you can wipe off any excess around the outside with a cotton swab/Q-tip
7. I usually wait until the GA are dry before cutting the image out, but if you’d rather cut the image out when it’s wet, either way works
8. Once the GA dries then you can attach your charm to a jump ring and put it on a necklace or keychain!
TIP: If you want the back of the charm to be more polished or smooth, add a thin layer of GA and let it dry.
