As you may know, my biggest fan is my niece. She loves every piece of jewelry I make for her. Last Easter I sat down with her and we created some unique jewelry just for her. She seemed to love it, so as a Christmas gift I thought I would give her some beads and findings, and see what she creates on her own.
I started with this cute little jar.
She plays guitar, so this DCWV music paper from the DCWV Premium Paper Collection was perfect! I cut a flowing shape out of it, then spritzed it with water. I then took Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and rubbed it along the edge. Holding it upright made it run with the water drops. I then took a wet cotton swab and added slight shades of Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers and Milled Lavender Distress Inks throughout the paper. I then sprayed Time Holtz Perfect Pearls Mists in Biscoti over the entire paper to give it a nice shimmer.
After that dried, I secured to the jar with ModPodge, and went on to add some DCWV Adhesive Jewels and Buttons. I found this cute purple Butterfly on the DCWV Premium Paper Collection, cut it out and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Milled Lavender Distress Ink, and glued it to the jar.
On the top of the jar lid, I cut out this amazing Black Sparkle DCWV Premium Paper and secured it with ModPodge. I cut a "J" out of the Adhesive Jewel Sheet, and then cut some flowers and leaves out of the Premium Paper Collection as well.
I filled this cute jar with beads and added it to her starter kit of elastic, cording and glue. I can't wait to see what she creates!
Thanks for stopping by!
