Step 1

Mix acrylic paint 85/15% with dimensional fluid.  Apply several coats to metal tin using sponge wedge.  (Three or four coats are adequate for 100% coverage.)  Allow ½ hour drying time between each coat. 


Step 2

Using Ebony Rub N' Buff, randomly darken the embossed areas of the tin design.  Repeat this technique using Silver Rub N' Buff, overlapping the colors intermittently. 


Step 3

Highlight the outer edge of the frame with Silver Rub N' Buff and apply a coat of sealer over the entire tin to protect the paint.  Allow 2 hours drying time.


Step 4

Randomly dab the Making Memories letters, frame and edges of photo with Silver Rub N' Buff. 


Step 5

Mat the photo with black cardstock and attach with silver brads in the four corners. 


Step 6


Thread the leather stripping through the Making Memories buckle. And use Continuous Glue Lines to adhere stripping to photo and backside edges of photo mat. Adhere photo to tin sheet using Craft Glue Dots. Using 1" Glue Lines, mat white cardstock onto small metal frame and secure frame to tin. Mount letters to framed cardstock using Mini Glue Dots.


Step 7

Mount letters to framed cardstock using Mini Glue Dots. Stamp quote onto white cardstock and highlight edges with Silver Rub N' Buff.   On backside, place one Pop Up Glue Dot in each corner plus the center and adhere to tin.
