Since I am going to be spending the day writing, I thought I would share some photos of some of the beautiful ideas that my friend Anna had regarding one of our patterns. I always love to see what others do with our patterns, and Anna has always been adventurous and embraced many of the ideas that I have shown here in the blog as well as developed many of her own.
She took Keith’s SLDK375 pattern (Embellished Filigree Pendants) and had some fun with making them using different species of wood, rhinestones and some of the DecoArt Metallic Lustre that I often speak about. I think the results are really beautiful.
First I will show the overlay pieces. Anna took contrasting wood to accent the pieces. I really love how these came out and I think those of you who are wood purists will agree. The strategically placed contrasting wood really makes these pendants pop:
Next, she embellished them with hot fix rhinestones. I always love to add some ‘bling’ to things and I think this added just the right amount of sparkle. They came out very pretty!
And finally, Anna finished the pieces using different shades of DecoArt Metallic Lustre wax. I love using the Metallic Lustre because it adds so much shine and has no offensive odor. It truly can make any wood or surface look as if it is metal.
Aren’t they all wonderful?
I really want to thank Anna and those of you who share your pictures with me. There are days when I am busy with some of the day to day tasks of running the business and I really love sharing your work with those who read. I am sure it is a great inspiration for everyone not only to see what I do, but what others do as well.
That is what networking is all about.
I hope you have a great day. Here we are in the middle of the week again already!
Happy Wednesday to you!
