Flash Friday Tip

Welcome to another Flash Friday Tip!

I enjoy creating my own embellishments from pieces of plastic and cardboard.  Not only can each piece be personalized as to size and color to coordinate with a project, but it also incorporates my love of recycling. 

A quick way to simultaneously color BOTH sides of an embellishment that uses a medium that takes time to dry (i.e. acrylic paint) is to hang the piece from a knotted loop of fishing line.

This loop serves two purposes.  It enables you to easily turn the piece back and forth while painting and is a built in hanger for drying.
