Here are some of my latest attempts. 

On the one with the trees, I used a spray bottle lightly, but then just let it all drip on the letters.
On the one that says stars, I dipped a paintbrush in the bleach solution and went at it.
On the one that says Shine, I sprayed it with the spray bottle, more heavily on the letters, but then I dabbed it all with a paper towel.

That's so cute!  I have a whole bunch of old Pope/Vatican City stamps from a semester studying in Rome...I'm going to see what I can do!

I officially hate that my refrigerator belongs to my apartment complex...and that I'm moving again in a few months.  I love love love it!  And I love the orange and white fridge too!  Like a creamsicle!

What a great idea.  I'm going to try this for sure...something easy enough to make in a small amount of time, and something i can afford (that's the real seller!).  Thanks!

I love the lamp!  You've totally inspired me to try something like that of my own!

i'm too tired to get all my stuff out tonight, but the next thing i want to try is putting the bleach solution in a spray bottle and spraying the photo instead of immersing it...if it's successful, i'll post the result!

I love that! What a great idea, and such a thoughtful gift!

I love the shrinky dinks!  How big are they?  They would make great magnets too!  I would buy a whole bunch!

I love all of it though...really cool.

i just used a thin layer of tacky glue for the photo and the metal decorations, but I put a layer of glossy stuff on over it all as well.  you know, for shine.

Actually, I discovered it through a book called "The Complete Guide to Altered Imagery".   Here it is at amazon.com

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1592531776/qid=1139280385/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/102-2595697-3728125?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

It also has a whole lot of other really great ideas.  I haven't tried them all yet, because I got so hooked on bleaching.
