It's been awhile. I don't know why it takes me so long between blog posts. I've been creating like crazy, making all sorts of interesting things. Like this jar for a Kids at Play jar swap.
Then I glued two little girls (cut out from collage sheets from AlteredPages.com ) to stems I saved from silk flowers I'd used for something else. I did the same with some little plastic princess buttons I'd gotten. Stars, a gown, a crown, a clear slipper. I used E6000 glue, which grabs fast and dries quick. When it was all dried, I used a drop of glue and anchored each of the stems inside an alphabet bead and then to the bottom of the jar.
I poured a little glue down the inside back of the jar and put more sparklies in the glue to dry. I used my Big Shot and a Nestability to cut out a cover for the top of the jar, embossed it, then added two word magnets that say "Once upon a time" and "In the castle". There is a little castle button in between. Here is the lid:
Today I'm making sand bowls, something I found on Pinterest. Definitely a learning process. Mod Podge and sand mixed into a cement paste and poured over the outside of an upside down bowl. I think I'm going to have to spackle more sand mix on them when they dry because the sand kept running and there are going to be holes. I'll post a picture when they dry to show you how they turned out. If they turn out.
The next week, I will be on a houseboat with five other amazing women, but after that, I promise to post more often. Every two months isn't often enough.
