Recycled Embellishment Jar..

Life at the moment can be summed up with one word…………………………Busy… with a capital “B”..

I’m so behind with projects, my poor wee craft shed is being neglected big time..

This evening I had some time to myself, the troops went to the movie’s to see the new James Bond 007 Skyfall so I had a couple of hours to play, which let me catch up with my Design Team commitments.

First on the agenda was a tutorial video for the poinsettia Christmas ornament I made a week and a half ago, this time I made a red one.. for the tutorial click here

 

Products used for this were :-

SP-00039 100 SELF ADHESIVE RHINESTONES – RED
BM-00078 50 LARGE RED POINSETTIA BLOOMS (60mm)
WT-00007 10 METRES RED DIVINE BAKERS TWINE (10.93 yards)

 

then I altered a small jar I had saved for recycling into something else…. in this case I cleaned it up and decorated and it now houses my cream pearl rose embelishments

 

 

products used for this were :-

SB-00008 VINTAGE SEAM BINDING RIBBON – OLOROSO
BM-00003 100 MIXED GREEN/WHITE TONE BLOOM SET
BM-00020 100 MIXED COLOUR SUMMER BLOOMS (20 colours – 3.8cm / 1.5″)
SP-00007 60 WHITE SELF ADHESIVE PEARLS – 5mm

 

Hopefully i’ll be able to get more crafting in next week 🙂 .. until the next time have a great weekend

Floral Reflections…

Hi Everyone…. and a very happy friday to you all.

Here is this week’s Design Team project for Wild Orchid Crafts, there are a ton of flowers on this project this week!

This project is an altered Ikea square wooden mirror, I tossed a coin to see what colour it was going to be because I couldn’t choose between green or pink… head’s won and green it was 🙂

here is the before picture

 

I gave it a coat of White gesso and then a coat of Early Spring Green edged with antique white acrylic paints

 

and here is the mirror… before the flowers invaded 🙂

 

 

I also used some muslin fabric and various vintage crochet doilies cut into bits from my own supplies…

Glue Stick Container

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying the lovely-ish weather of late, we had yet another downpour this morning followed by some lovely sunshine, I don’t think the weather quite knows what to get up to next, its changeable to say the least!

I have another design team project to share with you today on behalf of Wild Orchid Crafts.    I recycled a bright pink vanish stain remover plastic container, and re-purposed it as a new glue stick container to keep all my glue sticks in one place…

 

I tweeked the project slightly and you can see the additional flowers added to it over on the Youtube video that shows the project off here
