Technique Tuesday with Cynthialoowho♥

Fimo Clay Roses
You can color your Fimo with Magical Mica's, you must use Magical's as they have pigment in them.
Here I've chosen Ramblin Rose Pink Magical & Oakleaf Olive

Add a small amount to your clay and mix well.

Here is the clay after being mixed next to the white Fimo.

Make pea size balls, then flatten them.

I used a stamp block.

Start molding your rose! Here I just turned one side inward to create the bud.

Add your petals and overlap one side. To create a spiral of petals.



Once your petals are in place cut the excess at the bottom and keep to color for the leaves.

Here I added Oakleaf Olive Mica, I wanted a soft green so I used a mica.

Here are 3 pellet's I made to create the leaves.


Now cut your leaf shape with some jaggity edge deco scissors.

Draw the veins with something pointy.

The instructions on Fimo soft say to bake @ 230 for 30 minutes.
Here is my finished Rose with leaves.

Thank you for sopping by for another

Shimmering Garden Shadow Box

Hi everyone, it's Sharon here and 
I waned to share a small shadow box I created for the Lindy's Stamp Gang booth at CHA this winter. It was one of the projects I completed for the booth and I just love how it turned out. 
I found this little box at the dollar store, and thought I could do something with it...I didn't know what at the time, but I knew it would be good for something, maybe a shadow box layout? Yes, that's exactly what I turned it into, and it went from this:
To this:
There was a lot I did to this box, and I love how it came out.... I had a picture of a garden on my mind, and I think I achieved it. What do you think?
First I prepped the box with guesso. After that dried, I applied a coat of brown acrylic paint. when that dried, I put a coat of crackle medium, and then some ivory acrylic paint, all to achieve the crackle finish you can see all over the box. After all that dried, I sprayed the entire box with Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Stain for some shimmer.
I used one of My Favorite Thing's banner dies, and cut out the banner from designer paper by Colorbok (Flea Market Collection). I then sprayed the banner pieces with Scintilating Silver Glitz Spritz, and afterwards added to the banner some Maya Road chipboard letters, which I sprayed with Cadbury Milk Chocolate Startburst Stain. In between each banner piece I added some tiny mulberry paper roses which I sprayed with different Starburst Stains:  Cotton Candy Pink and Alpine Ice Gold. Afterwards, I embossed the tips of these roses with some Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder in the color Hibiscus Rose Orange. LOVE embossing the tips of the petals of my flowers!
I also used some Lindy's Stamp Gang butterfly charm pieces, which I embossed with Dandelion Yellow embossing powder, and finished off with some white pearls on their centers.
I punched some butterflies out of cardstock using two different Martha Stewart butterfly punches. I then sprayed the butterflies with Icy Primrose Gold Starburst Stain, and sprinkled some embossing powder in the color Byzantine Bronze, just to add more texture and shimmer to them.
I used some glittered green sprays, as well as some vintage white bud sprays in the backgrouns, which I got at my local craft store. Behind the picture of my Emily I used a Kaiser Craft wood birdcage piece, which I sprayed with my Starburst Stain in the color Golden Lump of Coal. The stain gave it just the right touch of shimmer.
I filled in the rest of the box with different sized mulberry roses which I colored using my Starburst Stains in the following colors: Alpine Ice RoseTiffany's BlueWild Honey Suckle Coral and Scintilating Silver.
The wood stand that holds the box was also purchased at the dollar store. Can you believe it?
I hope you enjoyed this project and were inspired to create with Lindy's Stamp Gang Products. Until next time!
