ETCHALL BLOG HOP - SPRING BLOOM PENDANT

Image
I am so excited about this product, I was so intimidated to try out etching in my glass projects until now.  Thanks to Barbee the "etchall lady" I received the Etchall® Etching Cream which included a squeegee, etchall etchmask, and a craft knife. 


I love creating all types of craft, but my two favorite things to make are, jewelry and flowers, so I decided to make both.  This product is so simple to use, I know I will be using this from now on, specially since this cream can be re-used over and over again, this I feel is a plus.  


Here is my project, a glass pendant with an etched flower.






Once I selected the glass piece to use, I drew my flower on paper for perfect fit, then after cutting the etchall etchmask to size, I drew the flower on the back and used the handy craft knife to cut it out. 




When applying your stencil to your piece, make sure to use the squeegee or an old credit card and press over the stencil a few times to prevent any of the cream to go under the edges of you…

Party Time - with some little green people and space people too!!!

It's been a while since my last post, I've been really busy with proms, a wedding and well I will post about those later on, right now I want to share some cute little projects for my nephew's birthday coming up.  My sister who always goes all out for the kid's birthday parties decided to give him a space party.  I can't wait to see everything else she's making to make this celebration one he will remember for a long time.  This little boy loves anything to do with stars, planets, well he said he's going to be an astronaut when he grows up, and he sure is going in the right direction he will start middle school next year with honors science. 
So here are the little people I made.
