Hello friends,

Welcome to the second and last video, where I share projects made using the June GDT kit from Elegant Embellishments..
It was so much fun to using these kits and I made some really awesome projects.. I loved that with these kits you can create variety of projects, either use them for making jewelry, danglers or on card, mixed media, album etc..


And today's project is really close to my heart.. I loved all the 3 projects that I made, doesn;t mean I do not like the other projects I create, but these are just precious.. (You know what I mean)...

So lets start with this very beautiful NOTEBOOK I created from scratch.. Its a three fold notebook that measures 5by3.5by1.75 inches
The front of the notebook is decorated using MFT stamps, dies and stencil..
And the dangler is created using the Unicorn Charm kit and Shaker charm kit from Elegant Embellishments. I am in love with this notebook..

Polymer Clay - Mokume Gane Technique

Hello crafty friends,

Today I'm here at The Craft Shop Blog sharing a very fun technique using polymer clay called the Mokume Gane Technique.

What's Mokume Gane ?

Mokume Gane is a Japanese art, a method of manipulating metal to achieve a woodgrain pattern.. Lots of polymer clay artist has borrowed from this art form to create magnificent patterns.. In Mokume Gane technique you do not have to follow any rules, its more of a free technique where you can go with the flow..










In this you create the stripe pattern and then manipulate that pattern using tools to get that fun Mokume Gane pattern. When creating your stack, you always wanna start with atleast 3 different colors - dark, light and a metallic color (I use metallic color to add shine to my pattern) Today I have used 5 different colors - Orange, Yellow, teal in pearl finish, Silver and Twinkle Twinkle.. 







I created this hollow bead using the mokume gane pattern I made.
And with the same pattern I made this blue necklace below..
