Upcycling with Stix2

Upcycling is the perfect creative way to give an old pre-loved item a new lease of life. Debbie Frost has been using her crafty skills and some of her favourite Stix2 products to make a lovely photo frame.

Handmade by Debbie Frost

Things you will need:

Black Tinted Card A4250TINTBLACK

Cardboard Frame
Black Gesso Paint
Sizzix Tim Holtz "Wildflowers" Thinlets Die Set
Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Polish in Citrus Green & Mediterranean Blue
Tiger Picture


Using these Stix2 products, you too can create your own bespoke photo frame by following the steps below.

Firstly Debbie scrunched up some White Stix2 Tissue Paper and stuck it to the frame using Stix2 PVA Glue to give texture. She then left this overnight to dry.

Next she gave it a coat of Black Gesso Paint and left this to dry.

Debbie then used the new Stix2 2in1 Glue Pen on the texture created by the Tissue Paper. She applied the glue and then left it to go really tacky (about 1/2 hour) . At this stage it's great to use with Stix2 Transfer Foils in gold, copper and green.

The foliage for the jungle look came from Sizzix Tim Holtz "Wildflowers" Thinlets die set. Debbie took a piece of A4 Tinted Black Card and randomly applied Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Polish in Citrus Green and Mediterranean Blue and then cut with the dies. The Stix2 Glue Pen was really great for sticking the flowers in place as it has such a lovely fine nib.

She then mounted the tiger onto another sheet of A4 Tinted Black Card and the whole thing was assembled using Stix2 Polyester Ultra Sticky Tape.

For more projects by Debbie please visit her Blog.

Please contact Stix2 on 0191 2697810 or sales@stix2.co.uk should you need any further information.
