Hello and welcome to the WOW! UK blog!
This months theme is altered/recycled art. I decided to give some old buttons a new life by turning them into a piece of fun jewelry.
I first covered the buttons with Fab Foil using Bonding Powder. After applying the foil I heated them untill the foil started to "cook" which creates a fun texture. Watch out, cooking is ok, burning is not :)
After they cooled down I added a layer of Ultra High Clear Embossing Powder and while the embossing enamel was still hot and fluid I sprinkled in some micro beads to add more texture. Finally I added a top layer of Ultra High Clear Embossing Powder to make sure the micro beads stay in place.
I used some jewelry elastic to bind them together to a bracelet.
I think it turned out to be a fun piece and it is so light you hardly notice you're wearing it.
Fab Foil: Bright Gold, Turquoise, Bright Copper; Bonding Powder; Clear Ultra High Embossing Powder;
Thank you for stopping by today and I would love to hear your ideas for giving buttons a second life!
Have a great day, happy crafting!
