A Little Birdie Told Me

Here's something a little different. As some of you know, I also teach a kid's scrapbooking class, where we do layouts, mini albums and other paper crafts. It being the last lesson of the current term, I wanted to do something a little different for them, so Carla of HKMC and I thought of doing a little jewelry project.

I wanted to go for a more "Spring" like theme, and had these little birds to inspire me. Everything is glued down with Diamond Glaze by Judikins. It works similarly to Glossy Accents by Ranger, but I find it dries clearer for these kind of projects. You can layer the glaze without losing your detail underneath and you can even glaze your fabric so the whole piece will harden and be waterproof.

With just a few items, you can create a gorgeous piece of jewelry, which makes a great gift for Mother's day.
My finished necklace. I cut an oval of patterned paper to line the bottom and glazed it down. All other elements were layered on top.
A bracelet made to match with the same paper underneath. I added an initial charm to personalize it.
Definitely a cute project and gift idea for kids or adults alike.
