As I was visiting Where Bloggers Create II blogs, I stumbled across another blog event, Sister in the Bloggerette Sorority. I love the idea. Last week, Karen of Some Days are Diamonds blog, had RUSH week. She posted a picture and each participant had to create something with the picture and blog about their creation, including a picture of them self with the project.
I didn’t make the time line but Karen wants everyone that wants, to be included. Even though this is late, I completed an old-fashioned looking pin. I used mat board for the base. I glued a small version of the picture on the mat board, then used embossing crystals to coat the top. As I was waiting for things to dry, I went through my button collection to embellish the edges. Of course it wouldn’t be quite finished without some Swarovski crystals in blue. The other gems are from an inexpensive stretchy bracelet.
Overall, it didn’t come out exactly how I wanted it to. The embossing powder didn’t melt completely clear so the picture is a little hard to see. I also want to add to the edges but I haven’t figured out how or with what. I’m going to keep working on this project
