Here's one of my old watches that has come to "live" since I changed the old straps for new beaded ones. I used green beads from the Artisan set and 0.5 mm silver wire. I also used the Macramé knot called flat or plain, cutters, crimp beads and a clasp. It might need some more filing on the face as the black paint on it was peeling. I only need to get a battery now and I'll have a green watch to match the green jewelry I made earlier.

En este proyecto recicle uno de mis relojes antiguos y lo "reviví" al cambiarle las correas por unas hechas con piedras de vidrio. Use las piedras verdes del set Artisan y alambre plateado de 0.5 mm. Tambien usé el nudo plano de Macramé, tenazas cortadoras, crimp beads y un broche plateado. Puede que necesite mas lijado en la parte central ya que la pintura original negra se estaba pelando. Solo tengo que ponerle una bateria nueva y tendre un reloj verde que vaya a juego con la joyeria que he hecho anteriormente.

This is my 1st try at using some wire shapes I made myself using a round nose plier and a flat nose one. I sew them to the card using silver thread. I also used some beads for the butterfly body and quilled wings. I also used funky scissors for the borders and foam for a raised effect. Finally added pink ribbon for the background and K& Co base card.

Esta es mi 1er intento al usar unos espirales de alambre que yo misma hice usando las tenazas de puntas redondas y planas. Luego las cosi usando hilo plateado. Tambien use unas moztacillas para el cuerpo de la mariposa e hice las alas de filigrana. Tambien use tijeras de bordes ondeados y foamis para darle un efecto 3D. Funalmente le agrege cinta rosada para el fondo y una tarjeta de K&Co como base.

I made this page using a picture that was taken at "Luna Negra" (Black Moon) Restaurant in Chiclayo, Peru when I was 25. I only used Do Crafts products as this page was choosen as the Scrapbooking Project of the week by
I made the frame with handmade roses I made from strips of PaperMania Colossal paper. I used tacky glue to attach the flowers to the page. I also used rub-ons and my own handwritting to write the number 25. I put the journalling on the flower petals and add some punched shapes to the picture.

Some more ATC's I made to be given as "business cards". I made the roses from paper and use a die-cut for the dress. The one with the sunflowers is actually an "Eason's gift card" which I altered using eyelets and stickles.

This is my latest layout in which I used some patterned fabric. It was top I got on sale and I really liked the little flowers on it. I used it as a background and also cut some of the flowers from the fabric, put some platinium stickles around to stop the edges from fraying and added them as embellishments. The letters were die-cut with the Olivia alphabet from Cuttlebug.

Este es mi ultimo layout en el que use tela estampada. Fue una prenda que compré en remate y me gustó bastante las florecitas que tenia. Use la tela como fondo y tambien corte algunas flores de la misma tela, les puse purpurina/escarcha engormada en los bordes para evitar que se deshilache y las agregé como adornitos en mi pagina. Las letras del titulo las corte con los dies de Cuttlebug coleccion Olivia.

White Roses

Quilled white flowers

Quilled Bells

3 Roses

Here you can see the Sympathy cards I've made since I came here (N.I) You can also see how much I have improved on making the paper roses. The card with the black background called 3 Roses was the 1st one I made and the roses were the first ones I made too. They came out a little "too square". You can notice the difference if you compare them with the ones on the 1st card of this post called White Roses which one I made yesterday for a friend.

Aqui podran apreciar las tarjetas de condolencias que he hecho desde que llege aqui (Irlanda del Norte). Tambien podran apreciar cuanto he mejorado en hacer las rosas de papel. La tarjeta con el fondo negro llamda 3 Roses fue la primera que hice y las rosas fueron las primeras tambien. Salieron un poquito "cuadradas". Pueden notar la diferencia si las comparan con las de la primera tarjeta de este post llamada white Roses que la hice ayer para una amiga.
