Happy May Day. Today, I am sharing a project I have made using the exciting new Wonder Crystals that Justin & Gordon launched recently on Hochanda. To create the design, I used Leonie's Mixed Media Die Collection 'Mosaic'.
The addition of the mica flakes has brought a whole new look to the already amazing Wonder Crystals, giving them even more texture and depth. Here I have made my project into a wall hanging, but by using other materials, it would make a stunning statement necklace.
I started by cutting a rectangle measuring 3 1/2'' x 7''. I covered the card with a Wonder Sheet before shaping one end using a basic circle die.
I positioned the Mixed Media dies onto the card to create the design I had in mind.
Next I drew a larger triangle to compliment the design, then drew lines to divide the area into panels to use the area to best advantage.
I cut the remaining areas, applied my chosen crystals and heated with the heat tool.
I secured my design onto a backing with Cosmic Shimmer glue. Once dry I positioned four small holes using a Cropodile.
To finish, I threaded a length of black cord. It would make a lovely wine bottle tag or a smaller version on leather or faux leather would make a wonderful key ring and as I mentioned before it would make a statement necklace or even a card topper.
Thank you so much for visiting today, I really hope you enjoy your May Day bank holiday. Hopefully you have enjoyed the step by step today and the finished piece.Take care and Happy Crafting.xxx
