A little taste of Mexico


Mexican inspired artwork
I love the look of Mexican artwork, the warm oranges and bright colors make me happy.
so I created this peice of beautiful art work.






I love the warm pinks and oranges against the cool teal, the overall look is very pleasing to the eye.
Its all pretty simple to make, and I honestly think that anyone can do it.

You start by gluing down the pieces, I used some Lace, nails,a wooden sun, jewelry findings and some stones.
Once everything is glued down, paint the entire thing with a heavy coat of Gesso.
Then get that heat tool working and dry it so you can do the fun part!

I used Art anthology Gemstones "Garnet" in the center section

Then, Velvet "Terra Cotta", and sorbet "Kenyan copper" 
Then sprayed with Colorations "Juicy"


The outside edge is painted with "Veridian" and 
then sprayed with Colorations "Peacock feathers"(my fave!)


Once everything was dry, I used Rub and buff to highlight the  raised parts.

That is all!
Easy peasy lemon squuueezy!!

Lets create an easy bracelet!

Today I would like to show you an easy way to create a pretty bracelet
 perfect for the little girls in your life.
Here is what you need:
May Art ribbon, a grosgrain with sealed edges works best
Beads
Bead caps
Needle and thread
 
yep , that all it takes to create this cute little bracelet:
 

lets get started!
 
This bracelet is easy peasey lemon squeezy and will be done in a jiffy and make
 a little girl very happy!
 

 
Run the thread through a loop in to ribbon, leave a tail on the end of the ribbon at least
four inches long. This will be used later to tie the bracelet on.

 
Add a bead cap

 
Then a bead and another cap

 
Flip another loop of ribbon up and Repeat until bracelet is as long as needed, it helps to
 have a small willing model to try the bracelet on. :) 



 
Cut the end of the ribbon and seal the edges with a little glue to prevent fraying.

 
I also found it helpful to add a small amount of glue to each fold of the ribbon.




 

 
That's all!!
and just look how cute it is!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
