Fun Stuff to do with Vaseline

Wow can't believe it's been 10 days since I've had a birthday and posted on my blog. We are in the mist of a room addition and I am learning to embrace concrete dust. tee hee

Now, I don't know about you but my skin is dry and the heels of my feet are cracked and's really an ugly thing but I saw on Oprah some beauty hints and one was about making your feet BooTeFul and smooth by using Stridex and Vaseline on your heels at night to clear up that dry skin...hope it works.

Well, since I had Vaseline on my hands I decided to do some Vaseline resist type art.

I got a digital collage sheet from Retro Cafe she calls them "Hello Dollie German Heads".

For this ATC card I used a cute Oz playing card. I adhered the dollie head with gel medium and covered the face with gel medium too. I let it dry then I spread Vaseline on the face and any part I wanted to show through after finishing. I then painted the entire surface with pink acrylic paint and let dry.

After the card was dry, I took a tissue and wiped away the part that had vaseline on it. Wa LA my Vaseline Reist! I took some stazon ink and inked the edges. The rest you can guess.

Now my second fun Vaseline piece.....First for the background piece I am using a piece of tin so that I can use it as a magnetic board. I spray painted the entire 5 x 7 tin piece with white paint and let dry. I cut out one of the bigger dollie heads from my collage sheet and ahered it with gel medium back and front and let dry.

Rubbed the Vaseline over the face part and painted with pink acrylic. I let dry and rubbed the vaseline off the face and WA LA....AnOtHeR vaseline resist.

I glued the tin piece to the shabby chic frame and added lace for a neck piece. The 3 buttons are magnetic so this little framed collage can be cute and useable as a small memo board.

Well I'm off to do some more vaseline resist on my feet. :}

That's waaay cool girl! BTW, I would be glad to share some soldering tips with you any time. Now I wonder if they sell Stridex in Canada cause the heels of my feet are horrid!
