Each month at SJ Designs Jewelry, Sarajo shares a photo that her husband, Eric, has given her as inspiration for jewelry designs. They call it the Honey Do List, and it's a lot of fun to play along. This month, the photo is a trio of textural images.
So, I painted a piece of paper with a couple shades of green paint before pushing the color back a little with some walnut ink. Then, I spread a crackle paste over the green and gave it time to work its magic. I accented the cracks with a little more ink before cutting a circle out that would fit in a bezel.
And, while I worked on the pendant, I remembered a couple pairs I had altered with crackle pastes a few weeks ago. They were quickly turned into earrings.
I want to thank Sarajo and Eric for another fun challenge. And, I encourage you to join the Honey Do List and create something beautiful. Sarajo will have the linky tool on her blog open for several weeks so you can add your contribution(s) to the challenge for a while yet. Don't forget to check out the other artists who participate too.
So fun! I don't know about this crackle paste you used but I LOVE the effects you got! That pendant is spot on for the challenge... and that last pair of earrings is particularly swoon-worthy. Thanks for playing along with us. I always love seeing your creations.ReplyDelete
Crackle paste is a medium made by several brands (in several colors - I used white and clear for these three) and is an art product but can also sometimes be found with the scrapbook materials too. I adore what it does. It's one of my favorite art mediums. I'm tickled that you like what I made. As always, thank you to you and Eric both for the inspiration!!Delete
Those look great. Here is my entry. https://travel-cats.com/bitsj.html/2-2023-the-honey-do-list-challenge-part-2/ReplyDelete
