Hello I'm back again , today i have a wonderful post to share with you...
I had bought some clear baubles from Spotlight last year and had been playing around with ideas for them. They had been painted with alcohol inks and covered in paints and glitter but nothing really worked and then while i was playing around with the lacy cards, i realised how lovely the doily circles would work.
doily circles cut from table runner or old tablecloth
or cut lace circles from fabric.
now if you want colored ones...
paint...watercolor [twinkling's work]
metallic acrylic [works beautifully]
or mix some polished pigments with some gel medium
buttons, beads and bits and bobs to fill them
ribbon for hanger.....
not many ingredients , just what i like!
remove silver part from bauble....this is what Margaret guessed... i broke one cleaning it , have broken a couple actually :( so don't press too hard
Take your circle and cut the tiny centre out of it.
It will stretch so don't cut too big.
When its dry brush some gel medium on back and place over top and press around gently , moulding it over bauble. Alternately press it on bottom making sure its centered, this was probably hardest bit...
Clean up excess gel on bauble.
Fill bauble with your treasures, i added anything sparkly, also old hooks and eyes and press studs, till about a third of the way and higher for the bottom lacy ones. I used all my small white and cream buttons and had to buy a pack (
Glue cap back on with gel medium and thread a hanger thru....
p.s. must get hubby to clean verandah roof LOL! its shown up in the reflection!
