Hi guys! So I've been busy this week, and have made a bunch of new creations I'd love to share.
Quartz and spent bullet casing on brass ball chain...
Broken mirror on ivory and navy leather - Tornado!
"Vaseline Glass" or Uranium beads - Vaseline Sunrise (Uranium glows under black light)
Hemp wrapped wire dream catcher with various stones, gems, brass, shell, and a coyote fang on this cool brass chain I found at the hardware store.
This one was a little different for me. I'm not used to making things that are so...girly? delicate? This. But I find the results pretty adorable, surprisingly. Brass and faux pastel pink pearl, and a little puffy heart.
Annnnd 5 of those awesome old school 80s bell clip charm necklaces combined into some sort of madness.
Thanks for letting me share, and I'd love to know what you think. Specifically of the flower/pearl/heart necklace, since it's not something I'm used to...
First things first. Supplies: 1)Any of the hundreds of collage sheets from Petite Paperie, or other images of your choice. 2)Mod Podge 3)Some sort of sealant/enamel 4)Scissors 5)Foam brush 6)Paint brush that you're not worried about destroying 7)Needle nose pliers 8)Small piece of wood 9)Ball chain 10)Drill and small drill bit 11)Two jump rings
Okay Step One: Choose your collage sheet and the images you would like to use for the project. I used the vintage mushrooms. The piece of wood I used was roughly three inches wide, so I chose three images
Step Two: Cut out the pics you chose with your scissors.
Step Three: Arrange the images on the wood in a way that you find aesthetically pleasing, then place aside and get your mod podge and sponge brush ready to go.
Step Four: Apply a generous amount of mod podge to the wood with your sponge brush. Don't worry, it dries clear.
Step Five: Apply your cut out images in the order you chose earlier to the gluey wood. Make sure they are where you want them to stay and let dry. Completely.
Step Six: Once the bottom coat is totally dry, grab your paint brush and apply 3 or 4 coats of mod podge on top, letting each coat dry before you apply the next one. Let that dry completely.
Step Seven: Once the top coats are dry, spray it with clear sealant or enamel, to make it nice n shiny, and for added protection.
Step Eight: Once the sealant is dry, it's time to drill holes for your jump rings. It's best to do this on top of something you're not worried about accidentally drilling through. I used a wooden cutting board. You may want to mark the spots where you want holes with a marker... And drill!
Step Nine: Pull the ends of the rings apart with your pliers and put them through the holes you just drilled. Close them back up.
Step Ten: Now just string your ball chain through the rings and you're done! Mine's a little crooked, but I think it just adds to the vintage charm.
Hi guys! So, I found a TON of awesome vintage fabric at the flea market. I used some of the cool flowery zig-zag to make this pin cushion. It's 8x6 in. and can cushion ALOT of pins n needles. Attached it to wood, painted and glued some big beads as feet, sewed fabric flowers, buttons and other goodies to the top, and THIS happened. I think it's a little adorable, and I wanted to share.
