Glass Nuggets

I bought a pack of the clear Glass Nuggets from my local garden centre at the weekend, with a view to altering them to have a bit of bling, so this afternoon I took a handfull, gave them a good clean, then got a few bottles of stickles out .. and here is the outcome 🙂

  • Take the nuggets and turn them upside down to that the flat (bottom) is on the top
  • Put a generous squeeze of Stickles over the entire top surface, then place somewhere safe to dry

  • This is what they will look like once dry

  • Once they are completely dry, you can turn them over and they are ready to use on your projects, I have plans to use some of these as flower centres 🙂

I also tried making one without Stickles, using glossy accents and glitter and it turned out ok.. results below 🙂

  • Take a small lid and place the nugget in the middle then apply a good coat of glossy accents to the flat base of the glass nugget.

  • Take some glitter and sprinkle over the top of the glossy accents, I gave it a good layer of glitter

  • Set aside and allow to dry completely, then tap off the excess glitter

Flower Power…..

A bit of a flower power post this evening….. last night I had a play around with plain flowers, I dressed them up with stickles.   I played around with distress inks, all in all I had an absolute blast!

I used to just make cards and generally have a bit of a paper fetish, but now … wow is all I can say, it is like someone has opened up a door to the big wide world of crafty’ness and I LOVE IT!!!

So without further adieu here come the flowers 🙂

  • First of all I took a large plain olive green paper daisy it’s roughly 8cm x 8cm

  • Next you will need some Ranger Stickles, I used Platinum

  • and finally some Prima flower centres, I absolutely love these, and I’m planning on making some of my own if I can source the thin coiled wire, if you look closely it’s between the gem and the sequins.

  • I put some of the stickles around the edge of each petal, than added another line of the stickles from the centre of the flower just a quarter of the way up towards the centre tip of each petal, then once the stickles were dry I attached the Prima flower centre to the middle of the daisy with a glue dot.
  • Two quick and easy steps to turn a plain flower into something quite special, I’m planning to use this one on a future mini album project 😉

Now onto the distressing of plain white flowers, I’ll do a tutorial on this soon, but in the meantime, I;ll just post a picture of the finished flowers and list the materials used…

  • 1 x Mini Mister filled with water
  • Tim Holtz Distress inks in Broken China & Shabby Shutters
  • 1 x Heat Gun
  • White Prima Flowers
