Hey y’all! I’m ready to get you digging through your grandma’s jewelry stash or your old junk jewelry/button bins with this project!
This was such a quick and pretty project to do with stuff you have in your stash and the March BGC kit. I used the wooden clipboard (don’t you just love that clipboard?!) and just lightly rubbed on some of the blue paint from the March kit.
Next I moved on to the flower. I took apart one of the flowers in the kit and rubbed some Bad Girls Couture gesso in the middle of both flower sections. When that was just about dry, I came over that with some of the yellow paint in the kit. I loved rubbing it on instead of brushing it because it gave it such a natural effect and really made it look like the inside of a flower. I then brushed on some clear crackle paint and allowed it to dry. Once the crackle dried I rubbed on some brown ink to give added dimension and highlight some of that beautiful cracking. Finally, I added some glitter to the edges of the petals with some gesso before glueing both pieces of the flower back together. And as the crowning touch to this lovely flower, in the center I placed a beautiful vintage rhinestone earring. I removed the clip from the back and just adhered it with a bit of hot glue.
The flower is attached to the clip with another touch of hot glue and it’s now ready for use! Fun for displaying mini pieces of art, pictures or cards!
Now go digging in your junk jewelry and buttons and find a treasure to REPURPOSE!!
