Grow Your Blog Party and Tutorial!
I am so happy :) you stopped by.
Please, help yourself to some scrum*dilly*umptious refreshments while you look around.
My name is Diane. I am married to
a great guy, who supports me in all the crazy things I do.
We are grandparents raising beautiful grandkids, and we love every wild and crazy minute of it.
I started blogging several years ago.
One of the art groups I belonged to, had suggested starting a blog to help in promoting sales.
I found that the blogland is simply amazing!
I have met so many wonderful and talented people, and I am looking forward to meeting you too:)
I am an artist,
and I work in many mediums, but my favorite is air dry clays.
You can view some of my work in the pages above, under "gallery".
I like to go thrifting, and give old discarded items a new purpose.
Or, Jazz up new items!
Like these little plastic containers I found at the $ store.
There were 10 in a package for only $1.
I thought, WOW! I can sure make some extra cute candy containers for all the grandkids and my booth space up town, with those lil' cutie's.
If you would like, I'll show how i did it!
I gathered my supplies: Spray paint,Mod Podge Dimensional glaze ( I LOVE THIS STUFF! It can be found at any Hobby Lobby or Michaels craft store). Glitter ( I use Martha Stewarts fine glitter). Acrylic craft paint and the plastic containers found at the Dollar store.
First I gave the lids several coats of spray paint.
Then like in above pic, I added dimensional glaze and spread it around.
Then, while the glaze is wet, I generously sprinkle with glitter.
After about 5 minutes of dry time, then add a top coat of Dimensional glaze. This will seal the glitter in and give a sparkly glazed look, and it keeps the glitter from getting everywhere.
Now you have some wonderfully, glittery lids.
Then you paint your design...
I kept mine simple, painting hearts.
And wallah, cute candy containers...
I hope you will be inspired to create!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog,
And I look forward to meeting you :)
Have a Happy Day!
