Hi there, its been a lovely sunny weekend here and instead of gardening I've been wrestling with this project. I didn't think it would take me long but the necklace kept going horribly wrong lol
I recently got some lovely alterable bits and bobs from the Artistic Stamper, and decided to use one of the little bamboo domino tiles to make a necklace for my MIL. The little papier mache book went really smoothly, a couple of coats of acrylic paint, stamps from Chocolate Baroque (Wisteria Lane and Rose Tree) coloured with distress markers, distress ink around the edges and a few layer of matt multi medium and that was it.
The little bamboo domino was a different kettle of fish. I got it painted and got dog hairs stuck in it so had to start again. Then because I was rushing I decided to use my heat gun and bubbled the paint grrrrrrr. Anyway third time lucky I managed to decorate the little tile and once it was dry (without the heat gun lol) I added beads and bead caps from my stash and strung the lot on some beading wire and finished with a clasp. Phew just in the nick of time as it was a pressie for my lovely MILs birthday!
