Life is pretty busy. I am working on a huge project called ARTFUL and my days quickly get filled up with meetings and such. In an effort to stay creative without the benefit of time I am continuing this series. These are meant to inspire you to fix something instead of throw it away and to develop your eye for finding the parts, among the trash.
So first we add some items to our arsenal. I love this glue, it works on most surfaces and is durable and flexible. It is expensive so make sure you close it up tight and you use a coupon. The second item, ring blanks can be found at many craft stores and come in several finishes. The last item (not pictured) is a soft toothbrush, which comes in handy when gentle cleaning of caked on ick is necessary.
#7 I have been looking for a good case for my round business cards forever, and I finally found it. It was right under my nose in a box in my studio, but timing is everything. All this project needed was a good cleaning with that toothbrush and some dish soap, and we were all good.
#8 This next project I have been meaning to do for a while. The original concept is so great that all I needed to do was clean it out (toothbrush again), refill with shea butter and add a chain. It still smells like the original lipstick, but oh well.
I am waiting to see if the shea butter melts in the heat before I fill it all the way up.
#9 This pretty pin was in a bag of stuff a friend gave me to play with. it was broken, so I decided to turn it into a ring. Using my pliers I carefully removed the other half of the broken latch and simply glued it on the ring blank.
It is still drying, but I plan to wear it asap.
now back to life, have fun!
