DIY Rust Paste
Rusty texture technique ("DIY Rust Paste"); this is a technique for making an embossed or bas-relief surface look like it is all rusty and neglected. It is a multi-layer technique, not just a single application of a paste to make things look rusty. It requires dark brown (Burnt Umber) paint and rusty-brown (Burnt Sienna) paint for the under-layers; these have a texture powder added to the paint to give it... texture! If you can't get the grit powder, cinnamon will do (it's bark, it isn't going to dissolve or go rotten). Other paints are then added in more layers to get a metallic and patina look.

Quick Cabochon Capture In A Wire Wrapped Pendant
This video demonstrates an easy way to make a wire wrapped pendant that features a cabochon stone. This requires thick (copper) wire, thinner (blackened steel) wire, wire cutters, hammer, block, centre punch, another hammer, and a drill. The idea is to use the thick wire as an outer frame, bend it in an overlapping teardrop shape, flatten the ends and drill holes in them (for jump-rings to go through). Then cage the cabochon inside the frame with the thinner wire.

Making your Own Embossing Plates
Why spend money on new folders when you can make your own?! This video shows you how to do so, and how to use leftover products. The basic idea is to cut out shapes from heavy cardstock, and glue them to a heavy cardstock background, and use that as an embossing plate. It won't be as deep as a two-sided folder or as durable as plastic or metal, but it will work.

Make Fancy Acid Free Tape for Mixed Media Using Leftover Acrylic Skins
You can make totally amazing tape for your Art Journals and Mixed Media art Projects with leftover Acrylic Skins. (That is, sheets of acrylic paint formed as part of the acrylic pouring process.) You can even cut this tape with fancy scissors, die cutters and punches. This is a way to use those skins that are just too thin to peel up on their own. This needs acid-free (non-yellowing) wide clear tape. The creator used Scotch Ultra Clear Heavy Weight Packing Tape, but other tapes would work just as well, so long as they are acid-free (and wide).
