gilligan’s island magnets


varia 013

In case you can’t tell, I recently had some time to work on various craft ideas I’ve been thinking about recently. Post condo sale means that life will slowly start to return to normal. YAY!


With these, I printed out sepia toned images from the tv show Gilligan’s island, bought acrylic squares (ones used in scrapbooking) and painted the back of the square with modge podge before sticking the images to them. The results became a bit more rosy than anticipated, but I’m ok with that.


I then painted the back of the image, let it dry, and finally glued on the magnets:

As you can see, my magnets turned my images blue. Drats! Not quite the look I was going for. (Though pink and blue seems to be a theme: see cranes). Obviously I’ll need to seal up the backs better on the next try… modge podge just doesn’t quite make the cut!
