Guess the Movie Title . . .

Oct 2011 053

Did you come up with “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”?

If you did – pat yourself on the back (I can’t reach from here, silly).  This was the inspiration provided over at Dragons Dream Tag It On this week.

I spritzed the background using Pumice Stone and Worn Lipstick with a dash of Broken China as well and edged the tag with Vintage Photo.  I stamped the plane and clock face using Stazon Dove Grey directly onto the tag and stamped the train ticket onto watercolour paper using the same ink.  I then distressed it with Vintage Photo and popped it up on foam.

The car was made with hot glue, believe it or not!  I brushed a latex mould with Perfect Pearls in Pewter and filled the mould using my hot glue gun.  Not my own idea, of course – I am just not sure where on the net I found it.

Really cool fun if you have silicon or rubber moulds but don’t use the chocolate mould with the hot glue – messy, I am told.  It seems you can use the low-temp glue guns but I don’t have one so can’t vouch for it.

I had heaps of fun making loads of different embellishments – some with added glitter, some with other pearl powders (eye shadow from the $$ shops works a treat) and some painted up with nail polish.  I popped mine in the fridge for 5 minutes to set before I de-moulded them. The pearl powder ones work best, I think

Thanks for popping in to take a look.

  1. My first guess was "Pearl Harbor" but that's not such a fun movie lol! This is a GREAT idea with the molds, I have never seen that before! Thanks for the tips!
