Hello blogging friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Summer is coming to an end and that means school is just around the corner. I know in different areas some of the kids are already back in school. So went went school shopping this weekend. Something totally different for us--in the past it was just uniforms. This will be Evan's first year in public school and the first year at the Jr High. The private school he went to only went up to sixth grade. So this will be a year with a lot of new experiences.
For today, I have a decorative pin/brooch to share with you. I used one of the Spellbinders® pendants GL2-001 Heart Angel-Gold by A Gilded Life.
I painted the pendant white and then I added some details with pink and blue paints. Next, I buffed the pendant with steel wool until some of the paint was removed and the gold metal was revealed. I absolutely love this look--is so pretty and shabby!
I added the pendant to a very large safety pin. I used gesso on the pin to tone down the silver and give it a more shabby look. Then I added some charms, crystal dangles, ribbon, tulle and lace.
I also added some AB crystals to the heart on the pendant. This is such a quick and easy project and would make a lovely gift.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs & Smiles,
