Welcome Spring!

Saturday, March 6, 2010

It's a fabulous sunny morning, perfect day to post this project from Creative University. The photo above could be better, it was the best I could do in a rush before Creative U. The individual photos should give you a better idea of the detail that went into each piece. I had a blast designing this project, and wanted to feature a different technique on each tile.

This tile is stamped with the letter S, then the letter is covered in liquid glass. A few pinches of pink beads, then irridescent glitter is dumped on to adhere to the remaining liquid glass. The results: a very chunky, sparkly letter!

The letter P uses the glitter n' tape technique. So simple! The butterfly is stamped onto acetate in pigment ink, then heat set. The antennae are jewelry making wire, which is easy enough to bend with your fingers into the curly ends.

Box pleats are much easier than they look. No measuring, just go for it!

I found this chunky pink glitter at JoAnne's. Doesn't it look like something you'd sprinkle on a cupcake? But it tastes terrible.

Love this primitive flower. If you've got cardstock or paper, you can make one. Cut a circle, distress with ink and scissors, crumple it up and stick it together. Easy peasy, lemon sqeezy!

I think this has to be my favorite. I adore this little bird, she's so sweet! I added a wing by stamping a swirl onto her body. A mini brad for her eye and a pile of jute for her nest, how darling is that?
