Japanese Influenced Pendant - Create Along Box Project
June 29, 2018

Japanese Influenced Pendant - Create Along Box Project

Cindi McGee created this bold Japanese influenced pendant with her Japanese Influenced Create Along Box!   Items she incorporated from the box include:

  • Ginkgo Silkscreen Stencil 
  • Ginkgo Texture Sheet 
  • Deco Disc Lotus Flower Stamp 
  • Faux gemstones from Dragonfly Dreams Create Along Box
  •  

    The resin coating obscures the ginkgo texture a bit in the photo - but you can see how fabulous the texture sheet worked in this "in progress" photo.

    Reina Dragonfly & Earrings Galore - Dragonfly Dreams Create Along Box
    May 25, 2018

    Reina Dragonfly & Earrings Galore - Dragonfly Dreams Create Along Box

    Klio Tsaliki shares several fabulous projects she created with the Dragonfly Dreams Create Along Box! 
    My Reina dragonfly: It is a quite
    big piece with the upper wings
    being reversible. One size is made using the transfer included in my Create Along box, while the bottom wings are cut out using the shape and  not the texture of the Deco Disc (part of the same Create Along box). Painted with the metallic Decoart
    blue paint which was included in a prior Create Along Box and decorated with some tiny hot fix rhinestones (I got some also in my CA Box).
    Wings are also decorated with iridescent films and
    Mylar flakes. Here is the back side of the upper
    wings.
    Earrings made using the stamps and texture pad included in the CA Box. Both upper and bottom parts of the earrings were stamped on a thick polymer clay sheet and then cut out with the craft knife. Then I applied some golden patina on them.
    Double sided earrings
    Another pair of earrings using the mini stamps. These stamps are fantastic, I LOVE them because they are easy to use and give accurate and deep texture while they offer a small pattern which can be used in many projects.
    Double sided earrings, back side is painted with alcohol inks and sealed with liquid  clay.
    More earrings: Istamped the pattern using the mini stamps. Then applied some of this beautiful mica powder I
    found in my CA box. This time I used my mini cutters and made kind of lace for these earrings. These too are double
    sided; I used a layer of translucent clay with crackled
    silver leaf to back them. This is how they look with
    the backlight:
    This piece was made using the silkscreen it was in my last CA box. Sometimes I do prefer the non perfect look which seems like a bit old and used. This one is double sided too, not decided what to do with it yet. Maybe it will go to be part of a hanging mobile, maybe a pendant! Who knows!
