Rinea Paper Foil Goddess Canvas Art!

Check out this Goddess I made with Rinea Paper Foil.
Isn't she heavenly?
I had so much fun creating her, I hope you will too!
  • Rinea Metallic Foiled paper
  • Sapphire Star Struck Foiled paper
  • a canvas
  • Any face photocopied on the lowest ink setting.
  • Gold embellishments
  • Decorative paper
  • Paper or floral roses
  • Decorative punch
  • Foam tape
  • Scissors
  • Old paint brushes and a round foam stencil brush
  • Tacky glue
  • Acrylic paint is shades of: white, cream, blues, pink, orange, yellow
  • Glitter
  • Fine permanent pen in black

Using the round foam stencil brush, start painting at the top of your canvas with the darkest of your blue paints. Gradually lighten the blues as you work your self down into the pinks and yellow paints.
Twist the foam brush as you work to make the painted circles seem 'cloud like'.

Glue your photocopied image onto sturdy craft paper and cut out. Paint the face with white and cream colors. Then add some color for the cheeks, lips and eyes. When the paint is dry, accent features with the black pen. Cut out her outline including hair and torso. Trace her cutout onto the canvas. paint some vibrant colors around the traced design.
Adhere your cutout to the traced design with some diluted glue. Leave about 1" from the edge of the cutout without glue.

Measure your paper foil to be about 5" wide. Starting from the outside, gently crumple the foil towards the center. Then crumple into a neat ball. Next un-crumple the foil, careful not to tear it as you unravel it. Smooth it out as neat as possible.

Cut your foil into ray-like shapes as shown.

Use a old paint brush to spread glue onto the foil.

Place your rays onto the canvas, tucking the ends just under the face cutout.

When all your rays are in place, begin cutting your sapphire paper foil and decorative paper into crescent shapes.

These crescents were approximately 4" wide. Begin adhering them with glue around the face.

The purpose of the "crescent" shape is to  frame the face and to portray the movement of a shawl or scarf.

For the body, you can start gluing down overlapping layers of block/crescent shapes from the patterned paper.

Add more sapphire foiled paper as desired and then start adding thin curved strips of the gold paper foil as desired.

For this goddess, I added gold star shapes.
Finish with your paper roses and more patterned paper.
Accent with glitter and punched foil shapes as desired.

Thank you for coming, I hope to have inspired you!

Embroidered 1st Aid Kit

Here's something I made to hold my 1st aid supplies while recently camping with my sons Boy Scout troop.

 Supplies needed:
  • Joy embroidered iron-on numbers and letters (found at Michaels and Hobby lobby)
  • Zippered pencil pouch
  • Hot iron set to cotton setting

Iron-on your numbers and letters to your pouch according to the Joy package directions. Use a pressing cloth to prevent damaging the bag if it's made of nylon. Fill the zippered compartments with first aid items, and done!

Rinea Paper Foil Butterfly Cube

I really love how Rinea Paper Foil adds elegance to just about everything including this butterfly cube!


Trim your Blush foil to fit four sides of the cube. Crumple the foil, then open up and smooth out. Adhere this with your adhesive to the sides of the cube.
Repeat this step with the Emerald foil for top and bottom of the cube.

Cut 1½" of wire and fold in half. Then curl the end of the wire with jewelry pliers to create antennas.

Fold the Violet foil in half 4 times and punch out with 2 sizes of butterfly punches.
Add adhesive to the center of the larger butterfly, add the wire antenna, then secure the smaller butterfly on top.Adhere these butterflies to the sides of the cube and add the word stickers at the bottom.

Cut some wire to be 3" long and crimp with your fingers. Attach the dimensional butterflies at the top. Use the paper piecer to make holes in the foil, them push your butterfly topped wires in place. Add decorative trim is desired.

Embossed Artist Trading Cards with Rinea Foiled Paper

Hi Everyone! Recently I was invited to participate in a postage stamp themed ATC swap.
 ATC is short for Artist Trading Card. Think of it as miniature works of art to make and trade!

  • Rinea Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper
  • Embossing folder and machine
  • Paper trimmer 
  • Small hole punch
  • Clear adhesive
  • Floral postage stamps- real or clip art
  • White cardstock
  • Real or fake flowers.
  • Sanding block
  • Plastic bottle
  • Scissors
  • Wax crayon or embellishment tool 
  • ATC stamp (from my stamp line- Sin City Stamps)
  • Colored markers and a black ink pad
All ATC's are 2 ½" x 3½". So you will need to use your paper trimmer to cut your foil down to size.

Emboss using your folder and machine.
Place the embossed foils onto the plastic bottle and gently sand off the embossed designs.

Fold the sapphire/gold foil in half a few times and make some confetti with your hole punch.

Use your embellishment tool to adhere some of those dots, gold side up onto the ATC's.

Add your postage stamp and flower petals.

Stamp your ATC stamp onto some white cardstock. Color in with your markers.
 If desired, embellish your ATC with some foil dots.

Now you are ready to trade away!

Personalized Dish Towel

Here's a great way to add some class to a dollar store dish towel!

Supplies used:
- Joy letters (found at Michaels and Hobby Lobby)
- Dish towel with 2" border at the bottom
- Permanent marker
- Parchment paper
- Iron

Begin by coloring your letter with your markers. Then place a piece of parchment paper under the top layer of the towel. Arrange your letters, lay more parchment paper on top and iron them down, pressing firmly for 30 seconds at a time, letting the letters cool in between ironing until they are affixed to the towel.

Hang for all to enjoy!

Patriotic Rockets with Rinea Foils

 Hi everyone, when I think of summer, I think of picnics, barbecues, anything patriotic, and fireworks! Here I have used Rinea Foiled Papers to create the perfect summer centerpiece.

From Rinea-
Other supplies:
  • Paper towel tubes cut down to 4"
  • Fancy paper straws
  • Embellishment- sequins.
  • Newspaper 
  • Double sided tape
  • Tacky glue
  •  Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
  • Embossing folder and machine.
  • Empty containers or glasses.
 Begin by folding the newspaper pages in half until you have a strip 2" wide.
Then wrap some double sided tape at the end of a straw and roll the paper around the tape.
When you get to the end of the paper, tape it down and add more double sided tape, then begin with some freshly folded paper. Keep this up until your roll can fit snugly inside the tube.
Coat the outside of the roll with your glue then push into the tube.

 With your paper trimmer, cut to size the Sapphire Star Struck to measure 4" x 6 ½" and emboss with your folder.
 Next cut to size the Ruby/Gold Glossy  to 3" x 7".
Score your foil at 2". Then with your scissors, cut a fringe up to that mark.
Adhere the fringe to the bottom part of your rocket with the tacky glue, but use a bit of double sided tape to secure the end flap. - Foil on foil.

 If you are using a standard sized embossing folder, you'll find that cut foil will be to large. This is OK. Simple adhear the embossed foil to the tube with your tacky glue and secure the last bit with tape. This will cover the non embossed foil nicely. 
 With your trimmer, cut a piece of Silver Star Struck to measure 1" x 6". Adhere this with double sided tape to cover the previous seams.  Add any embellishments to your rocket at this time.

 Trace a 4" circle onto Silver Star Struck. Cut this out, fold the circle in halves until you have four sections. Cut up to the center on one of the fold lines. Just like making a paper funnel, do the same with the circle until you achieve the rocket top you like. Secure shape with tape.

 Place a thick line of tacky glue onto the edges of the tube. Place the rocket cap on top. 

 Place your rocket upside down into a sturdy container. While the glue sets, curl the fringe with a straw. 

 The possibilities are endless with Rinea Foiled Paper!
