Bumblebee Girl Art Pendant by Alison Hall


 

 

 
Hello, Alison here again, with my 3rd Guest Designer piece for May. I love creating pieces of unique, wearable art, so I have a pendant to share with you today.

 

Here are the ingredients... 

Old Book Paper (mine was a piece from a previous project, which had some stamping on it)
Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade & Black Soot
Tim Holtz Ideaology - Ornate Frame (antique brass), Chit Chat Stickers, Jump Rings, Chain, Chain Tassels
Crystal Charm

 

...and, here's how I made my pendant...
 

1. Cut out a piece of old book paper to fit in the ornate frame.
 

2. Stamp the Bumblebee Girl onto white card, colour her using a water brush and the pink & orange Distress inks, cut her out & glue her to the book paper, using Glossy Accents. Trim the excess to the oval shape.
 

3. Use Glossy Accents to glue the image inside the frame, then fill the frame with a layer of Glossy Accents. Leave until completely dry.
 

4. On the reverse of the frame, add the Chit Chat sticker words. Mine were kraft coloured stickers, edged with Black Soot Distress ink. Cover with Glossy Accents, then leave until completely dry.
 
 
 
 

5. Add antique brass jump rings to the top & bottom holes. Thread the top with antique brass chain, and add the Steampunk key, chain tassel & a crystal chain to the bottom.

 

I hope this inspires you to make some of your own wearable art. I'll be back next week with my final piece for May.
