I made these fun little earrings (actually, they aren't all that little).  Anyway, I created rosettes and then embellished them with rhinestones, crystals, etc.







Here's how you make them...

1. Cut a 1"  wide x 12" long strip of canvas.
2. Apply Tacky Glue to top of strip and fold over.
3. Once folded, apply another bead of glue, then fold over.
4. Start twisting the canvas around the glued center.
5. As you twist, glue as you wrap the canvas around. After a couple of twirls around, you will see the rosette starting to take shape.
6. Leave a tail of about an inch when you get close to the end of the canvas strip. Glue the tail in place at the back and secure. Let dry.
7. Spray the rosette with the Fabric Spray Paint. Just a couple pumps of each color will saturate the rose with color.
8. Flip over the rosette and spray the back as well. Also cut and spray 2 small cut out canvas circles.
9. Using Fabric Fusion, glue the embellishments into place as desired.
10. Using your pliers, create a double loop with your headpin (it will resemble an eight). Place under the cutout circle and glue in place with Fabric Fusion. Let dry.
11. Open earring wire and attach to looped headpin. And you're finished!

Here's me wearing my finished earrings...



I included step by step photos of how to make these on my blog as well if you're interested... http://swelldesigner.blogspot.com/2010/05/graffiti-glam-earrings.html
