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
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!

Frosted Snowflakes Pendant polymer clay createalongbox project

Frosted Snowflakes Pendant polymer clay createalongbox project

Frosted Snowflakes Pendant by Cindi McGee 
The November 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, 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!
