Mandala Madness Part 11

Week 11 of the Mandala Madness CAL is officially behind me.  I am completely behind, but I am still trudging along.  The blanket is too large to transport so I can only work on it at home now.  I am hoping to have part 12 finished in a few weeks.

Bird Tag Card

I recently organized some of my paper crafting supplies.  As I cleaned out several small drawers, I came across this little bird, the tag and the embossed paper pieces.  I rearranged several drawers and found that the tag was too wide for the new space.  I decided to combine all of these orphaned components into a card.  Ta da!

Mannequin Decoupage

This is a little project I have wanted to make for several months.  I found this little styro-foam mannequin at JoAnn's and wanted to cover it with tissue.  I tore the tissue into little pieces and used Mod Podge to adhere the pieces, overlapping as I went.  When it was all dry, I sprayed the tissue with several colors of Dylusions spray ink.  I don't really have any further plans for this mannequin, but it is nice and colorful.

New Leaf Headpins

We have just added brand new leaf lampwork headpins to our Etsy shop.  These would make beautiful necklaces or earrings.  The iridescent ones are stunning.

New Skull Pendants

Check out our new skull pendants just in time for Halloween designs.  These have a voodoo vibe and are available in our Etsy shop.  My daughter, Gianna, likes to wear skulls all year long.

Mandala Madness Part 10

This was the hardest week yet!  The rows that make up the diamond stitches were very challenging.  I refer to this week as the dreaded diamond week.  One of my FB friends reminded me that diamonds are a girls best friend. 

I am happy to have this one behind me.  Next week should be a breeze!  If you want to learn more about this CAL, head over to Crystals and Crochet for more information.
