I drew the flip flops on a wood panel, being sure they were joined in one spot.
Using the Scroll Saw, I cut around the pattern.
I used the Bench Drill Press to create the holes for the twine.
The Disc Sander was used to sand the rough edges.
Once dry, I used a stencil with Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Spray in Tangelo.
I wanted some more texture and dimension so I placed a floral stencil from The Crafter's Workshop on the flip flops and used modeling paste.
Once the modeling paste had dried, I replaced the stencil and spritzed it with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Lilac Posies - love this color!
Nothing screams beach like sand and sea shells so I created sea shells from Makin's White Clay and a push mold, then added them to the flip flops surrounded by mini art stones and string. I used Mod Podge Spray on Adhesive to adhere these elements and added a sprtiz over them to seal them. Finally, I used a small Adventure stencil from The Crafter's Workshop with modeling paste above the shells and some dew drops from The Robin's Nest about the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by.
What a great project, Steph!ReplyDelete
