The general concept of the project/idea is to wrap a bangle with lace.
|My supplies: lace and a thrifted bangle|
I started by test wrapping the bangle in a number of ways.
|A tight wrap|
|A loose wrap|
|A tight wrap with a bow|
Basically, I succeeded in determining that I had enough lace to wrap the bangle in any of those ways. As well, there was something about the simplicity of the black and white and the lace that gave it a dated feel no matter how it was wrapped. With that in mind, it hit me that I could color the lace with alcohol inks.
So, I picked out some bright colors and cut a test strip of lace.
I knew I still wanted some of the white of the lace to show and really didn't want the colors too touch too much and become muddled. So I dropped the colors randomly and a little distance from one another. This is what I got.
What do YOU think:
- How should I wrap the lace?
- Should I just keep the lace white?
- Should I use different colors?
- Should I limit the inks to just one or two colors?
- Are there other tests I should make?
- Is this just a bad idea in general?
- Should I just go for it?
See. . .it's things like this that make me stall-out and not accomplish anything. Well, that. . . . and the fact that this was just released.

As I feel the pull of the Wii on me, let me try to be strong and eke out a little more info.
Since Thanksgiving is in ONE WEEK, I thought that it was appropriate to list this necklace.

I'm anxious to know what you have to say about my experimentation and if you have any other ideas or suggestions. I appreciate it!!
