A Paintbrush is not just for Painting!!!

Creating with Rowlux® Illusion Film!

I am so excited to use a new product in my crafting projects.  This new product is called Rowlux® Illusion Film and is made in the USA.  It comes in a divers range of amazing eye-catching colors and patterns.  The creative possibilities for this product are endless, the way it manipulates light to create dazzling visual effects will inspire anyone to step out of the box and create just about anything.  I love making jewelry and I love making flowers out of different materials, so I had to go ahead and try this new product to see how I could incorporate it into these two types of project.

Here are photos of the projects I created.
