My friend Michele L. over on SCS is hosting a There She Goes swap. You can read about it HERE. She introduced me to TSG with a set that she helped design, Chemistry. Michele is a chemistry teacher. I guess it was very popular, because TSG came out with a companion set, Chem. 101. Science geek that I am, I had to have both sets, plus a cute little Halloween set. But once I signed up for the swap, I was stumped. What to do? I was procrastinating one day and looking at the Resources page over at SCS for something entirely different, when I ran across the tutorial "Heated Pearls". I have done this technique before and I love it. I thought it would be great for the Chemistry set. I proceeded to make some BGs. Then, because Pearl-Ex looks so wonderful on black, I embossed the image and sentiment in white and colored the image with Pearl-Ex. Keep in mind, before we had Twinkling H2O's, if you wanted to watercolor with Pearl-Ex, you had to mix it with gum arabic and let it harden--presto, Twinkling H2O's! So that's what the test tubes are colored with. I then embellished with SU ribbon and brads in Tempting Turquoise and Green Galore (GG is going away this year--boo-hoo!) and popped everything up on dimensionals. I kept the LO very basic. Sentiment reads: If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate. That cracks me up! My DH's fave was "We do things in the lab that would be illegal in your garage". He very briefly had a home brew hobby. Oh, well enough rambling! Have a great day!
