Use up scraps AT Coins swap

Today I’ve got the coins I made for the Facebook swap group I run. Each month we do a swap with a theme. This month the theme I chose was “use your scraps”.

I chose this as I had lots of mini scraps on my desk of gelli prints and wanted to use them.

So I collaged the scraps onto coin bases and then mod podged them to give them a glossy finish.

I then embossed the Tim Holtz butterflies onto other scraps and fussy cut them out.

I then added gems and the sentiment which I embossed onto black card. I edged the coins with black gesso and called them done!

Love them!

And the project that I made to create the scraps … well I will be sharing that in another blog! Consider this a sneak peek!

Here are the daylight pics to show the colours better!

Happy crafting!
