Newsprint Tardis Framed Art DIY with JB Weld! Free Printable!


Hello my Lovely Whovians!
I have a special gift for you!!!
 This amazing WATERCOLORED TARDIS Printable!
Right click to save off, personal use only!
Please like my facebook page...follow on social media on side bar to say thanks! :)
 I printed out my Tardis on scrapbook paper that looks like Newsprint!
(Maybe you could print it on an old book page)
JB Weld (known as the Strongest Bond) sent me a whole selection of epoxy's and adhesives!
I am thrilled, because all crafters know...we go through adhesives like water!
I've never used a 2 part epoxy before, but it's easy!
 For this chunky wood frame I use the wood weld!
I miter cut at 45* angle some old pine boards 2" wide.
I measured my picture...and tried my best.
It's not perfect, but thankfully the epoxy made up for me!
 So it's quick setting and 2 part wood epoxy.
That means you have to mix equal amounts of both tubes before the bond activates.
When you mix them, you don't have lots of time...so make sure things are ready!
 I used a craft stick to mix it and set my project on some freezer paper,
newspaper or cardboard works too!
 Squeeze out equal parts of both tubes...
 Then mix them together.
It's the color and consistency of peanut butter!
 Then I used the craft stick to smear some on the wood frame...
 And squeeze them together.
No clamping necessary!
(see there are some gaps...bad measuring on my part...but the
 glue holds it perfectly and even makes up for my bad measuring!)
It dries quick and super strong!
I'm very impressed!
 Next I used my router and routed out a notch in the back of the frame to set the picture inside.
Not necessary...you can just mount it to the back with glue.
 I used glazier points (like this cork frame tutorial) and a setting tool
(or screwdriver) to hold the picture and cardboard backing in place.
 Easy and it looks amazing!
I could paint it or wood burn it...dye it or dress it up...but I love it!
Simple and sweet!
Perfect conclusion for the 12 Days of Doctor Who, right?
Come back tomorrow for a review and another free printable!

Peter Capaldi Galaxy TARDIS Shirt--12th Day of Doctor Who!

On the 12th Day of Doctor Who, my true love gave to me...
Peter Capaldi!
What do you think...do you love Capaldi as the Doctor?
I'm warming up to him...but it wasn't
love at first sight like it was with David Tennant.
Anyway...
My geek-love gave to me...
The Entire GALAXY!!!
 On episode 5, Time Heist there is some argument
 about why the Doctor is the one in charge...

 "Still don’t understand why you’re in charge"

Doctor:  "Basically, it’s the eyebrows"
I used freezer paper and cut big blocky letters out with my silhouette machine.
They were simple enough they could be cut by hand.
I didn't even cut the centers of the letters.
 Just line them up on the black shirt and iron the
 shiny side of the freezer paper onto the shirt.
 Add a TARDIS and it's ready to go!
 I laid it out on the patio.
Sprayed with bleach (half bleach half water)
Wait just about 5-10 minutes.
Then spray again if there are any places that need more.
It will turn very coral.
 Peel off the freezer paper...careful not to bump any other part of the shirt!
 Looks awesome!
 Then rinse the shirt in hot water and ring it out.
Lay it back down on the cement and use one step tie dye dyes to add colors,
swirls, nebulas, star trails and other galactic wonders...
(need more details here...check out this Galaxy Dress for more instructions)
 Add more colors until satisfied...then wrap it in
 plastic and let it sit for 6 hours or so.
 Remove from plastic and rinse in the sink until the water runs clear.
Then wash in a normal cycle!
Some of the color will fade...but it's awesome!
 Love the look of mist and nebulas!
That's the 12 days of Doctor Who Christmas Countdown!
Pop in tomorrow for a recap as well as a
GIFT TAG PRINTABLE
so you can surprise someone this Christmas too!
