Today I have a tutorial and Scrapbook layout that I did for the Scrapbooking Fanatics online Store. I would like to show you how to salvage plastic from packaging material...using the amazing Ranger Alcohol Inks.
The the large Alpha letters and leaves on my layout below are the finished products demonstrating what you can do with Ranger Alcohol Inks and Clear Plastic.

The journal card is from " October Afternoon - Farm Fresh: Wild Card. This layout is of our special boy Arron, he is such a poser and worked very hard to compile and preserve all these leaves for my photo shoot. Patterned Paper is from the Basic Grey Pyrus Collection Line. I love how the leaves and large journaling fronts harmonized perfectly with this paper line.
You will need the following products:
You can use any Recycled Plastic, my samples came from all my Tim Holtz Texture Fades Folders...nary a scrap of plastic goes in my garbage can. I use a pair of craft scissors and cut into flat pieces so they are ready to use.
My favorite products Tim Holtz Alterations line: Sizzix Bigz Dies, these dies can cut through the heavy plastic like butter.
Another staple product I use is my Ranger Non Stick Craft Sheet. This product is extremely durable, flexible and heat resistant. Just wipe and reuse again.
Apply two to three colors of Tim Holtz®Adirondack® Alcohol Inks
along with Blending Solution to the Applicator with the felt pad attached.
The first picture is of a few samples I did trying to achieve the Tonal Harmony of Fall Colors. Next step, chose your Tim Holtz Bigz Dies and cut with your machine. Almost finished...!!!!Final Step
I adhere the Plastic Diecuts to white cardstock. I love to use white cardstock as it showcases the vibrancy of Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks. To adhere the two diecuts together I stipple the Ranger Glossy Accents with an old brush onto the white cardstock.
Samples Ready to Use
I now have some finished pieces, ready to embellish Cards, Altered Art and or Scrapbook pages.Hope you enjoyed my tutorial....
