Finally felt inspired today.
It’s been a super long time since I have done any collage work. I’ve been thinking about doing it on a small scale like this, but haven’t found anything that has really hit me to cut and collage. Tonight I wandered through michael’s and found some amazing little papers and confetti. The skulls and crossbones are actually Martha Stewart confetti. Love it.
I also finally bought something that I have been drooling over for quite some time now.
I really LOVE glitter and this set has the best colors ever. Plus I had a coupon for 50% off so this cost me, well, half of what I would have spent. I have to justify it somehow!
Obviously I couldn’t wait to come home and work, and that’s exactly what I did. I spent the whole night drilling, decoupaging and glittering. I made the pendants about out of wooden disks that I also bought tonight.
I’m super happy with them, although not sure what cord I will put them on. I would love to find striped ribbon to make necklace cords for them, but I’m not sure where to find it. I’ll have to think on it.
I also made the necklace above for EVA’s Hawaii theme for this month. Love how it turned out, although not sure how “hawaiian” it really looks. I used suede cord and moonstones. The silver components are silverplate which I normally don’t use, but they were so pretty I made an exception.
This one is much more hawaiian looking. Like Hawaiian-style. Like “Saved by the Bell Hawaiian Style!”.
The flower is dyed quartz and pearl, and I used some random cool looking stones and shells I had. The chain is garnet chips.
So there’s my show-and-tell for this month. I am really going to try to focus on getting more creative again. It’s something I really miss.
That and Mr. Belding.
