1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Fingerprint Mini-Mosaic with Scrabble Tiles FREE TUTORIAL! on: August 25, 2008 03:42:10 AM
http://thescrabblegal.blogspot.com/2008/07/fingerprint-mini-mosaic-with-scrabble.html



Step 1: Set aside the tiles youre going to need to spell out the words Hand Print

Step 2: Take 11 tiles (any letters will do) and prime the non-letter side so they are completely white. Add a second coat if necessary, and allow to dry completely.

Step 3: Using your old ink pad (be sure to use non-toxic ink) one finger at a time, cover your fingertip in ink and press your fingertip on the white side of your tile to create a black-on-white fingerprint. Be sure to use one finger per tile. However, in the finished example, Ive used two tiles for my right thumb. Also, I recommend practicing on a scrap piece of paper first, because getting just the right amount of ink can be a bit tricky. : )

Step 4: Arrange your tiles like the example above.

Step 5: From here, you can do a whole bunch of things you can transform this into a refrigerator magnet, create a tiled-mosaic, or transform this into wall-art that can be framed and hanged great for kids rooms. (I teach each of these techniques in detail in my tutorials, as well as how to use recycled papers instead of paint.) But theres no reason to stop there. Ive had a few Moms tell me that theyve done a babys first prints scrapbook project using this idea. The options are endless.

Happy crafting!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / New Website & Etsy Shop on: June 08, 2008 05:58:22 PM
I sell mostly at fairs and to shops, I was getting a lot of business through Etsy, so I decided to open a shop and a website.  I only have tutorials up there now until I can figure out a system for handling deliveries for purchases made online.  I'd love your advice http://www.thescrabblegal.etsy.com and http://www.scrabblingbling.com
