I hope everyone enjoyed the festivities over Christmas time and didn’t indulge too much with all that Christmas spirit and goodies. It is almost back to ‘normal’ in our household so I should have more time for some crafting. The snow has almost gone along with the freezing temperatures which means my craft room will be at a more comfortable temperature to work in.
Here are a few things I made as little extra Christmas gifts (colours all look a bit odd on the photos):
You can find great tutorials at billies craft room on you tube for these.
Dragonfly grungeboard bracelet
Inks: Black stazon, Lumiere metallic acrylic paint Halo violet gold
Card: grungeboard, grunge paper,
Stamps: crafty individuals cracked paint stamp, dragonflies (unknown)
Other: glitter pen, Diamond glaze, black peewee glitter, Tim Holtz hitch fastener
The pendant alongside the bracelet is just made using patterned paper (to match the bracelet) glued into a bezel. Glitter to highlight areas then glaze to finish.
Daisy grungeboard bracelet
Inks: White stazon, black acylic paint
Card: grunge board
Stamps: Aspects of design Daisy daydreams
Other: black stickles, white fabric flower with various metals centres and pearl brad, Tim Holtz hitch fastener
The pendant was made as the one above and the silver filligree ring was made with a similar flower. I punched a hole in the ring for the brad to hold the flower onto it. This can be removed and a different flower or other embellishment added.
Copper grungeboard bracelet
Inks: Black stazon, gold acrylic paint, copper acrylic paint
Stamps: Urban tapestry by Tim Holtz (the grungy dotty stamp)
Other: piece from an old clip-on earing held on with two gold bradlets, Tim Holtz hitch fastener
The filigree ring has some Tim Holtz flower bits again fastened with a brad through a punched hole.
