Artsy Apron - Glimmer Mist - Shimmer Sheetz - Spellbinders

Happy Sunday afternoon to you! Wow--it's such a Beautiful day--a little on the warm side but I guess we better enjoy it while we can. I know it won't be long and the weather will be changing. Today I have a fun non-paper crafting project to share with you. I created this fun and artsy apron for a sweet little girl who's mom is a very dear friend of mine. Her little girl loves to hang out with mommy in her studio so I thought she should have something special for when she is crafting with mommy.
I started out with a white child's apron and it was so fun, quick and easy to make! To start I used three colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-- Key Lime Pie, Sweet Pea and Caribbean Blue along with one of the Glimmer Screens from the Garden Blossom Set. I used a tweezers to hold the Glimmer Screen in place while I was adding the Glimmer Mist. I also turned the Glimmer Screen around and used it kind of like a stamp pressing it down onto the apron and transferring the Glimmer Mist.To create the flower diecuts I used the Grand Calibur™ and S4-192 Blossom die #2, S4-109 Flower Creations Three and S4-072 Flower Creations from Spellbinders™. The material I used for the flowers is called Shimmer Sheetz by Elizabeth Craft Designs and I used four colors of the Shimmer Sheetz--White Iris, Light Pink Iris, Pink Iris and Blue Iris. Shimmer Sheetz is an iridescent Mylar.Here is a close-up of the bottom of the apron.Another close-up of the middle.And here is a close-up of the top of the apron. I also added Kaiser Craft Hot Pink and Blue Flower Rhinestones.
