Alphabet Clay Pendant

Do you remember learning your ABC's as a kid? Aahh, those nice innocent days. Not that I'm still learning my alphabets, lol! But I do like using alphabetical themes in my art; check out my Lost of Words altered bottle. Also, my whimsical alphabet polymer clay bowl, using Makin's Clay cutters and clay. Speaking of Makin's Clay, I made my alphabet pendant using metal letters and Makin's Clay in black. I simply laid down a thin sheet of clay onto the bottom of the bezel, glued on the letters and then on a second sheet, cut a slit where where the letters would peek through, then glued the second sheet over the letters. I added a little bit of texture. I hope you like my little pendant.

There are so many funs things you can do with these foils; you can stamp on it, paint, use with mediums or create 3D decorative projects.

Paper Dresses-Imagine

Remember when you were a little girl and used to dress your dolls or make paper dresses. The neat thing about making paper dresses is you got to design your own dresses. Well child's play does have to stay, well...child's play. I made paper dresses using the leftover teabags from my tea and stamped design using Imagine's StazOn inks and Creative Medium. These little dresses can be used on greeting cards, art projects or place in shadowbox and make a nice home decor that any girl, young lady or yourself is sure to enjoy. To learn how to make these dresses, visit the Imagine blog.

About this project

I made this project as an homage to routines; whether it's going to an office or being at home taking care of the little ones. It's important to remember to do things with love and positive intentions. Kinda of helps from going stir crazy too. Speaking of stirring things, coffee helps out the with that as well, lol! At least, is how I like to think of things.

I used the Crackerbox and Suzy Coffee Cup Heart stamp. I colored the background with Gingerbread, Turquoise Gem VersaMagic and Acorn VersaFine CLAIR inks. Also used the Acorn colored ink to color the main card. The background's crackle design is a stencil from Deco Art, also used the Acorn ink. I colored the coffee cups with  Tropical Lagoon and Sand All Purpose Inks and Tangerine Fabrico Marker using the brush Fantastix. I colored the chipboard gears with Turquoise Gem VersaMagic; Galaxy Gold and Celestial Copper Brilliance inks. I hope you like my project.

Star Pendant

So, one of my favorite phrases/quotes is "Par Ardua, Ad Astra" latin phrase for "Through Adversity, to the stars". It's also the motto of the Canadian Royal Air Force. I like it; I find it inspirational. I could not fit the whole quote on this size pendant, the letters were too big. That's okay, I used half the phrase and I like how it turned out. I will make a future project with the whole phrase though, perhaps a tile. I made this pendant using Makin's Clay star and round cutters and the surface is colored with Silver Gilder's Paste. I have also wire wrapped a little silver pearl. I hope you like my pendant.
