Playing with Hannah Lynn, Helmar & Tim Holtz Fragments = a FUN magnet!

I was really hoping to play with some of Crafts and Me new May images for today but my printer decided to run out of ink on me - shame on it! haha Thankfully I had this GORGEOUS Hannah Lynn Mystical Pond digital image printed out from awhile back that I had half colored. Phew! So, I decided, to make something FOR ME as so many times I make cards and such to sell or give away as gifts. And as much as I love these Hannah Lynn images, I wanted something I could look at any time so I made a magnet!! It was super easy and I know I will be making LOTS more to hang up on my fridge and around the house.

I recently picked up a pack of fragments by Tim Holtz and used the 2"x2" size for my image. You can see that it wasn't quite big enough for the entire image but I love that it really fills up the square that way. I colored her using Copics and my only suggestion would be to not use 100 next time around as you can see it bled a little when I adhered it. When thinking about what to use to adhere the image to the fragment, of course I thought of Helmar Craft Glue because it dries completely CLEAR! I put the glue directly on the fragment piece and then attached my image - once it was dry, like 2 seconds, LOL, I used my craft knift to cut around the fragment. Seriously EASY! Then because I want this to last, I used Helmar Acid Free Glue on the back just to act as a sealer and protect the paper from any damage. Once that was dry, I attached the magnet using more Helmar Craft Glue. Super easy and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the result! I hope you do, too!
