The UHU Twist and glue is a product I have been wanting to try out...and here is my first result. I am very
happy with it; it is a very strong glue, and is transparent.
I took a couple of photos, as it's very difficult to photograph the marbles.
You need:
juice lid
2 glass marbles
2 buttons
bottle cap - smashed
pretty paper
gathered lace
small magnets for the back.

I stamped on the buttons, a squirrel, and a dog, with archival inkpad. The feet image is from a DaVinci
 collection. I glued everything as shown in the pic - with  the UHU twist and glue.  It worked great!

LOVE IS … Soft – yielding – endearing – passionate.
I enjoyed putting these pages together.
All the images were transferred onto fabric using two methods – gel medium, and adhesive-backed cotton.

Two more Lutradur pages photographed - too lumpy for scanning!
The blue page has a painted piece of fabric softener sheet, which I was using to clean paint brushes, adhered to a paper towel. The little square is a Model Magic piece that I rubber stamped on. The pink page also has a pink fabric softener sheet, this time stenciled on with yellow paint. The round piece is a style stone with Opals stamped into. I love the colors in that set.


I wanted to take a break from the hassles that Christmas can bring - of course along with all the joy.
I made this spread in a short time, it just came together so easily. I do love working with Asian themes, so this might also have something to do with it!
I used text strips on the left, and rice paper on the right.
Stamps, stencils, a napkin and rub-ons were used, and then I played with my Portfolio Water Soluble Oil Pastels on the right side. These are available at

This is the result of playing with this wonderful product, Lutradur. This will be a bound book, but I wanted to take the photos before binding.
