Just Fiddling

Yesterday I had a few things on my desk for “WOMDW”, and last night as there was nothing on the tele, (I ALWAYS forget there is no Coronation Street on a Wednesday now!) I had a play………

I thought I would try covering one of the wooden heart embellishment badges I had made  ….. I used a scrap of paper from my K & Co Christmas Cheer Mat Pad, sticking  and varnishing it with Modge Podge for outdoors. I am dead chuffed with this first attempt – it’s sort of rustic. I plan to make some more at the weekend, taking a bit more time and care with the finish (as this was an  experiment I rushed it a bit).

The heart pebbles are another experiment I tried after seeing the technique used somewhere a little while ago.

I covered the back of the pebble with Anita’s 3D Clear Gloss Finish, stuck on a heart shape to match, cut from the Christmas Cheer Pad, and then covered with another layer of the Anita’s – and that’s it!

With the red pebble I did exactly the same thing but just used a small silver foil punched heart on the back.
I am not sure what I am going to do with the pebble yet, …… I am thinking perhaps I could add a looped thread when I lay the paper down so that it is secured within the Anita’s and then it could be hung as a decoration??????
