Hello everyone! I hope that you are all getting prepared for Halloween that is just around the corner. Are all of your costumes ready? Do you have enough candy? Is your front porch all decked out?
Well this weeks post has nothing to do with Halloween…Sorry.
So you know how last week I posted about a project that I was working on? If not, don’t worry, I’m going to go through it again!
Here are your supplies!
A piece of wood, paint, glue, jewels, paint brushes, and tweezers. I started by painting the board with grey. Of course, you can paint it whatever color you want, but I went with grey.
Next, I printed out the design I wanted on paper and drew it onto the board. I did so by coloring the back of the paper with pencil, then drawing over the lines again to have the pencil go through.
Once I had the design, I started placing the jewels on the board. I would put glue on the small section that I wanted to start bedazzling and would hand place, or tweezer place, the jewels on.
Now, I made the design a little bit different than the original. If you can’t tell from the picture above, the design that I picked was the British flag. So for me, instead of red, white, and blue, I used pink, white, and black.
I added some gems of other colors to add some dimension to the flag. So, I have purple in the pink section of the flag, and added some purple and blue in the black section.
It took a lot of time and effort, but it was totally worth it. I would lay out the jewels that I wanted to use on the board and would add glue to place the jewels.
And after about 18 hours of work (all broken up, not in one sitting) I finally finished. And I am extremely proud of my work. So here it is!
It looks amazing! I am so happy with how it turned out. And it looks amazing in the sunlight because the light just shimmers off of the jewels. I am sooooooo happy and I cannot wait to do more!
Thanks for stopping by!
