crafty sunday…

i took a class today at NESC, and i am smitten.  i’ve always been intrigued by pam huntington’s projects, and today i finally jumped in.

there’s all kinds of stuff happenin’ here that i’d never used or even seen in real life – mica flakes, ruffled crepe paper, these cotton batting balls (??)…  ahhh, fun!!!  and now i have a new list of supplies that i just have to hoard, umm, purchase, myself!

i used expanding paint – it fluffs up when you zap it with a heat gun.  and covered it all with this beautiful glass dome.  i had originally taken the class to make a gift for my grandma, but there’ s no way i’m parting with these little cuties!finished project

p.s…. i took a kinda crazy turn driving home and it all took a tumble, yikes!!!  everybody stayed right where i had stuck them, and now the inside of the glass has some little mica flakes static-clung to it, making a frosty look – i love it!!  =D

  1. Wow that is awesome! There are so many crafty things out there I’ve always wanted to try and haven’t- I’m glad someone is doing some investigating on how the other half crafts!
