Captured Fairy Jar - Enchantment Create Along Box

Cindi McGee has been having fun creating mixed-media projects with elements from the Enchantment Create Along Box.

After discovering recently that etchall® Creme works wonderfully with Create Along silkscreens to etch glass, she's been anxious to try the technique again and again.  

This "Captured Fairy" jar was created by etching with the Enchanted Rosevine silkscreen.  The fairy inside is made of polymer clay using one of the fairy images on the Magic Transfer Paper in this month's box.  

Cindi shared a full tutorial on how she created this project on her blog.

    Frosted Snowflakes Pendant polymer clay createalongbox project

    Frosted Snowflakes Pendant by Cindi McGee 
    The November CreateAlongBox.com Winter Wonderland Box arrived at my doorstep full of everything I could imagine needing to create awesome wintery designs!   This pendant uses many of the elements from the kit - the snowflake silicone mold, the texturestax snowflake stamps, the mica powder, and the
    pearlescent ink pad.    A mandala flower stamp, also from CreateAlong.com, did double duty as a large snowflake for the mica shift technique used as the base of the center of the pendant.

    I used premo Sculpey® Accents - Pearl and White Gold Glitter clay, and  premo Sculpey® white clay for some components. The finished piece has a subtle shimmer and sparkle that reminds me of new fallen snow!
