New Projects

Like I promised yesterday, it's time I give some detailed information about the two projects I am working (and experimenting) on. I am very excited about them, but with free time being so short I am not sure when I'll be able to fully dedicate and finish what I have started.

1. Serviette technique - involves placing a motif on glass, porcelain, ceramic, clay, paper, cloth, etc. It's very easy and extremely satisfying. Using this technique can help you decorate almost anything you think needs some color without requiring you to be able to draw whatsoever. Effortless as it is it can definitely become anyone's hobby!

  • Decopatch - somewhat similar to the serviette, but this one involves using different glues and finishers, and a slightly different technique. I haven't tried that one yet, but I am buying some materials tomorrow and will post a tutorial. The project I have in mind is decorating the kitchen cabinets and some of the doors in the house.
Here's the things you can do using these techniques:

2. Button-covered satin bracer/bracelet - that one is a bit different. It requires about 20 buttons, satin bow, lace and some patience. Other than that, you can be as creative as you want when working on that one.

Once I have some more time this weekend to work on it I will take pictures and post a tutorial. I only have 3 buttons done so far (dressed in lace):

I hope the bracer/bracelet turns out alright. I found some cute gems I can put on any future ones I make. So excited!
