SCRAPWARE MEETS GERMAN SCRAP =......


These are the little wearable art pendants I recently created. I love them all but  my favourite is the Graphic 45 steampunked one directly below. I think its really tricky as its reversible. The back side is two steampunked heads on a black glossy background but by far the trickiest bit I think is the German scrap "beads" created on the chord by rolling German scrap vine border around double sided foam squares then rubbing Smooch inks into the embossed paper detail... way 2 coool!!! LOL





MEDIEVAL PENDANT


PRODUCTS USED: German 45 Steampunk Debutante collection - Ephemera Extraordinaire, Radiant Rain Misters - Autumn Leaf, White German Scrap keyholes, Plaid Dimensional Magic, Black paint,
3 x SCRAPWARE small Fleur-de-Lis, Smooch Inks.

I used the punch out centre chipboard from the SCRAPWARE Antique Mini Frames set but any circular/oval chipboard shape would work. I also used smooch inks to make the dots on each Fleur-de-Lis piece but Id suggest self adhesive gems or pearls.


TEST TUBE OF INSPIRATION PENDANT



PRODUCTS USED: German scrap Wings - Gold , German scrap vine trim - White, Radiant Rain Misters Teal or Fern Green ( whatever colour ) printed words on transparency ( I made ), Test tube & cork,  Angelina straight cut fibres - Aurora Crystalina, Seed beads, Adhesive Silver foil tape, Clear mineral oil eg Baby oil or sewing machine oil, Black wire approx 20 cm

I call this the MOJO pendant the idea being to send one to a friend, as a pick me up if they are finding themselves lacking in the MOJO department!!! LOL This one missed the SCRAPWARE treatment but has a few quirky aspects that make it ...hmmm a bit unusual! LOL Like baby oil ...ohh lala! I used the baby oil to suspend every thing in so you get a "spirit level" effect. You can  move the test tube the contents including the mica paint and the shimmery fibres are fluid and move around the words!


WINGED PENDANT


 PRODUCT USED: Gold German scrap Wings, White German Scrap keyholes, Radiant Rain Misters - Autumn Leaf & Teal, SCRAPWARE Antique Mini Frames, 70cm of Organza Ribbon, Collections Postcard Girls ( a tiny personal photo would work here too), Plaid Dimensional Magic and Smooch Inks Molasses and Siren red could also be replaced them with gems or pearls.

Very easy pretty little wearable art. This would be gorgeous with a personal photo in it and as an added twist you could try a Dimensional magic or resin filled background with some beads or clock cogs submerged for interest.



GRAPHIC 45 PENDANT

German Scrap- Embossed Borders Baroque Black approx. 21 cm, German 45 Steampunk Debutante collection - Ephemera Extraordinaire, Radiant Rain Misters - Autumn Leaf, Teal or Fern Green, Black paint or ink, Assorted Red, Teal, Orange and Green seed beads and tiny watch cogs, Smooch Ink Siren Red, Plaid Dimensional Magic, Approx 70 cm black chord, Double sided foam squares or tape ( to create the German scrap "bead"

The watch cogs and beads have been submerged in Dimensional Magic. A note of caution whatever you've sprayed the background chipboard with WILL tint the Dimensional Magic ...here to good effect I think.



BUTTERFLY PENDANT



PRODUCTS USED : German scrap Flower, 2x large SCRAPWARE Fleur-de-Lis, Radiant Rain Misters- Autumn Leaf - teal - Fern Green, 15cm of black wire (this is florists wire), 70 cms Ribbon



FLOWER HAIR CLIP




PRODUCTS USED: German scrap Flower Black, German scrap Flower medium small Black, Radiant Rain Misters - Autumn Leaf & Teal, Smooch Inks Purple, Kindy Glitz - black opal,
Kaisercraft gem large 1x Bobby Pin

Before attaching the centre flower I pierced two holes and threaded through a bobby pin this is tricky because you can now wear this three ways.. in your hair, on a chain or chord or on your lapel.

Hopefully, there's some info here
that's inspired you to go play...

Oh I just remembered ...
if you make all these you probably should whip up one of these...
