Okay, This is what I did. I found some stamps that had good detail. I then mixed white craft glue and water. The ratio is about 2/3 water to 1/3 glue. Stir this well. Lay a piece of toilet paper.(yes I said toilet paper) over the stamp. I used 2 ply for those inquisitive minds that need to know. I took a soft brush, dipped into the solution and gently brushed over the stamp. You will see the design show up. I let this dry for about 15 to 20 minutes and applied another layer. I did up to 3 to 4 layers. With each layer you will see less of the detail, but do not despair. I then let it dry over night. Gently peel the paper from the stamp. I then roughly cut around the image. I will cut closer to the image when I have the item finished. These will look like white fossils, something like I do.
Lets get to it!!!!!

Here are a few I have made. You can get your head pins in the floral or wedding section at Wmart or other craft stores. Any type of beads you would like to use. Dab a bit of clear glue on the sick part of the pin and slide up the beads as you go. I let mine dry on a pin cushion or upside down in a little tea cup.
The triptych has been a integral part of art for centuries. Triptychs are 3 panel artistic designs that are hinged together and able to be folded. Typically the middle panel is the largest with two side panels of smaller size.
For this example I cut the triptych as one solid piece. I then scored the chipboard where each panel should hinge. I did the same for the background paper.
