Fun with fragments


I bought some Fragments (clear, thick plastic pieces in various shapes by Tim Holtz) ages ago and didn't do anything with them so I thought it was about time to play. This was the result. Most of them are decorated card stuck onto the back of the Fragment with Glossy Accents. Some are transparencies - this was slightly more tricky! To avoid the ink coming off the transparency I applied clear packing tape over the printed side and stuck the shiny, non-printed side onto the Fragment. This takes a while to dry so they have to be set aside for an hour or two. My favourite is the one in the middle with the pear and text. The pear was a Paper Whimsy image printed onto a transparency with a piece of text glued onto the packing tape behind it. I think it works very well, but of course I am biased!

I'm sure we all have tons of stuff we buy and then put on a shelf - I know I do. But it was well worth getting these fragments out - they look fab!
