What is more fun than being inspired by special friends on Valentine’s Day? Whoo hoo! After baking some polymer hearts, I covered the sides with Washi tape. I covered the fronts and back with images from my painting stash. I added some cool numbers that were from an old TV set. I coated everything in Triple Thick for sheen and dimension. A few more embellishments were added such as gold leaf pen accents and a metal eyelet. I strung them on colorful banana fiber and they were ready to go.
I found these lovely rubber coated beads that have such a sparkle to them that I wanted to add my own imagery on top by punching out some circles from other card designs. I coated the images with Glossy Accents to give them some protection and a nice sheen. The beads are double-sided and I can’t wait to string them, perhaps on a bracelet. When I hold them in my hand they are like shiny little candies.
