Oh yeah . . . Well I craft!

It's been a good minute since I have posted anything on my blog. Here's what I have been up to in the past few weeks. I'm still experimenting in photoshop to create scrapbooking papers. I created a couple inspired by Twilight, however truth be told I have yet to read a book or watch a movie about this teen vampire saga. I'll have to check out my on demand feature on my TV to watch the movie.

A new outlet I have found is decorative Dog Tags. I have a beautiful one with Marilyn Monroe on it, and I was inspired to create one of my own. Thanks to the candy bar at the Paper Niche, here is my decorative Dog Tag.
I started with drops of White, Metallic Silver and Black paint and swirled it on the tag. After it was dried I added my different rhinestone and metal flowers and arranged them in a cascade down the tag. I adhered them with 3M Metal glue. Once they were secured on the tag I dipped the whole thing in clear varnish, brushing off the access and making sure that every nook was covered. Let that dry completely, add a jump ring and you have your own custom made dog tag. It is a bit lighter than my Marilyn one but I love the way it came out and for under $5.00 to create you can't go wrong.
