I am working on my craft segment for Monday morning
on Channel Six here in Tulsa on the CBS station.
LeAnne Taylor and Carina Sonn asked me to
help them decorate a bowling pin!
It is for a charity bowling tournament for the
Tulsa Big Sisters organization to raffle off.
We decided that since it's a bowling "pin" ...
that it needs a "pin-up" girl
It took 3 coats of spray paint to cover up
all the bowling alley marks and the stripe.
The next thing I did was decoupage the pin-up girl
and the logo to the pin. Then I applied double-adhesive
sheets to the entire pin.
I decided to do the whole bowling pin in red,
white and blue beads. I'm putting different sizes
of beads on each section for more texture.
The little bitty beads don't have holes in them,
so they are absolutely beautiful.
I love it! I accidentally got a few stray beads
in the wrong sections, so I'm having to flick
them out with a craft knife.
It's as done as it's gonna get until Monday morning.
I am dying to finish beading the girl,
but it will just have to wait. When I do the segment,
I am going to let LeAnne and Carina peel off
the pink sheet that's covering the girl, and dip it
into clear beads for the viewers to see.
Tell me what you think...
I do have a big problem though.
I used adhesive sheets that I've had for
several years, and cannot find them
online or in a store anywhere.
Does anyone know where I can get more???
