DT Layout for Molossi Designs

This is project 1 for Molossi Designs as their guest designer for February.

Guest Designer Layout for Molossi Designs 

With this project I have torn the edges of the paper, inked edges with an ink pad and have also rolled the corners of the top piece of paper using a paint brush to reveal the different paper used underneath. I have also applied 3 coats of UTEE to the chipboard cogs which brings them up like glass using a heat gun. 

Note: For the glass effect on the chipboard cogs you paint the cogs your desired colour using a ink pad and ink the cog with a Versamark  Stamp pad. Apply a generous amount of UTEE over the cog and use your heat gun to dry, you will notice the UTEE melting - reapply coats of UTEE until you get the desired effect. With each reapply of the UTEE you will need to keep the surface wet with applying the Versamark Stamp Pad and then more UTEE. I find 3 coats leave a lovely glass finish.

Products used in this project:
Cardstock: Kaisercraft CD133 Cherry.
Paper: Molossi.
Chipboard Cogs: Molossi.
Brads: Molossi.
Green Rhinestones: Molossi.
Distress Ink Pad: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Pickled Raspberry.
UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel): This was used on the cogs which brings them up like glass. I used 3 coats on each cog.
Own Stash: Cog eyelets, die cuts and journalling tags.

Note: The UTEE is a Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel - Dimensional Medium for Decorative Arts.
