I had a blast with this project! I made a creative plaque for hanging
above my door so I can see it every time I leave the house. I used the
Delight clay for this project along with 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri
First, I rolled out a whole package of the
Delight clay and made a very organic shape with it. I flattened it out a
bit and took stamps and imprinted them directly into the clay (I laid a
ruler down as my guide to keep everything straight) and then went to
town embellishing it! I made a few butterflies, flowers and leaves from
the Delight Clay in molds and then even used the Terri Sproul Mixers
with 3D Crystal Lacquer and made even more embellishments!
the plaque was dry, I filled the embedded letters with 3D Crystal
Lacquer and Terri Sproul purple mixer and they just turned out beautiful! I added
different hues of blues and purples and some glitter and embellishments
and coated it all with a quick spray varnish. I am so happy with how
this turned out! Here are a couple of videos I recorded while making
this project. I will post the beginning video on my YouTube channel also
if you want to see how I used this amazing product!
This month I used the Clear Cast Resin. It takes 24-48 hours to dry (depending on the weather) But the things you can do are so endless because it dries clear. That means you can use different items in it and they show through. I had to stop myself because my mind was going crazy. So what I did this month was a jewelry piece. I am a jewelry maker and I thought I would make a pendant from this awesome stuff. I made a mold from my Amazing Mold Putty with a plastic container for as big as I wanted my piece to be. I then chose scrapbook paper and tore it to size and set it aside as I mixed my resin. Once I had stirred my resin for 2 minutes or so (it has about a ten minute working time) I poured a bottom layer in my putty piece, then I placed my paper, added a bit of glitter and then finished off with the resin to the amount I wanted and thickness for the pendant.
I let it dry for a day and a half just to make sure it was dry and popped it right out. I was upset as it wasn’t clear, so i asked my group “what did I do wrong?” They told me to paint a thin coat of the resin over it and it would clear up and sure enough it did! What a great tip! I let that dry overnight and then my pendant was finished! I wrapped it with some foil tape from the jewelry section and a bit of alcohol ink on the tape. I added a jump ring to the back with Sakura 3d laquer and let it dry. I put it on a chain with a few small keys and it is ready to wear.

I had such a blast on my live show the other day. We have a few kinks to work out early on in the show, but we got them ironed out rather quickly. I haven’t been on live in months and months so that was my first foray into Live again, so I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous, but by the end of the show, I thought it came out good. On the live show, I showed how I like to do layers in a Moleskine journal using different techniques and layers. Here is the live show-HERE (Just give a few minutes as we were figuring out before it starts!)
In this video, I show how I added a paper butterfly using three different sizes for added dimension. I glittered and played with a few different techniques to give you an idea of the variety of things you can try and play with. You can see that HERE
I love having journals to play with and practice in because you really don’t have to have an intended outcome. You can just PLAY! In the future I will show you how to make an inexpensive journal using paper lunch bags from the dollar store OR just from scrapbook paper you have at home with string or yarn. You do not have to be a professional binder in the way that I do it. I think art should be fun and if you don’t try out new techniques from time to time, how will you know what works and what doesn’t? Plus, you might just discover your new favorite technique!
