Day 5- #90daysofblogging
Guess what I did? I made some charms a few weeks ago. Something I never do.. because well.. I don't know how to make jewelry or dangles.. ::chuckles:: I was trying to do a crash course that week. You see I have been really thinking about all the projects I *intend* to create and don't. I buy all this crap and Don't even make one! I have lots of small bottles of metal charms and beads I have collected over the last few years with intent of making dangles. Dangles to add on my book spines and tags and faux mekodori. I used shrink wrap. Not to pleased with the colors and instead of the oven as I have in the past, I used my #heatgun. So I trashed the charms, no not literally.. just the idea of using them as a design team post. Looking for suggestions to get better colors.. lighter colors.. I think my next try will be alcohol inks or paints..
The pictures aren't any any order. What I did was I took my Sin City Stamps and stamps some images on the shrink wrap. then colored them with sharpies and color pencils (which didn't go well for me). Then I cut them then in random pieces and places a hole in each with a punch. Used a chop stick in the whole to hold them down, so I could hit them with the #heatgun. I learned from YT videos and pinterest that if it wasn't flat by the time it was done shrinking.. try to hit it with a domino. In many cases. I got them pretty durn flat. No WOW factor.. but ok.. Will try again.
That's it for me today!
