...On A Pumpkin?...Really!

Yep! It is that time of year for decorating pumpkins, and I thought, hey, I wonder...would Fantastic Glaze & Glue work on a pumpkin? So I thought I would give it a try!
 
Here is what I started with...and yes that is a real pumpkin, some fun Halloween pieces from Michaels and of course Fantastic Glaze & Glue and the new larger Mini Rounds Glass Bling!


So I started first with the eyes. Now when I purchased these googly eyes i didn't realize it was one piece, and as I bought the pumpkin seperately, these eyes could possibly have been a bit smaller. So when I used the Fantastic Glaze & Glue on them and they are a bit thick and not rounded in any way I used masking tape to hold them in place while the glue dries. It does take a bit of time for this to dry and I am not a patient person.

Ok, next came the nose and mouth so I decided to use the large bling. I just put the Fantastic Glaze & Glue on then positioned the bling on for the nose and mouth, and again, definitely give a bit of dry time. And then for that shredded paper fun stuff I just put more of the Fantastic Glaze & Glue on the top and added the "hair". I then used some more Fantastic Glaze & Glue on top of the hair and added a purple fabric hair bow!
 
And here you have my finished pumpkin! What do you think?

As always I would love to hear what you think of this project and if you have questions always ask!
 
Hugs,
 
Judy

Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #139-Kath's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Welcome to the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge! It is all about FeminineAnything Goes! So I wanted to do something this week with some technique playing! Here is what I came up with. The image is from a stamp set by Kraftin Kimmie called Fancy Florals and was stamped with black archival ink on watercolor paper, then colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. Now the background behind it was made using a Dyan Reaveley Triangles Stencil, Tonic Studios-Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and Holographic Glitter Embossing Powder. I applied the mousse through the stencil and while the mousse was still wet, coated it with the embossing powder and used my heat tool and the dimensionality and sparkle in person are awesome!

Glaze And Glue-The Sequel! And A Denver Visit!

Hi All! Today I am going to share with you a bit more about Glaze and Glue and show you another way to use it with your Craft Fantastic Products. But First!!!!

Have you had a chance to see us at one of the many shows we do throughout the year? I had a chance to do a quickie road trip and get to say hello to our road warriors! These ladies do an amazing job and they are definitely worth the trip! If we are in your area, or even kinda, sorta, close, come out and say hi!

 
And now for that Glaze and Glue continuation...
 
I have been a huge fan of Glaze and Glue for many years and I really do use it for many things. One example of that is that I have used it on paper crafting which I have shown you before on cards, but I have also used it for some intricate papercrafting as well. Here is a little something that would not have been possible without it.
 
 
All that delicate die cut paper on the front was glued to the wood shadowbox with Glaze and Glue and it holds better than anything else I have found.

But wait, theres more...for this I was curious. I am totally in love with our bling, and I had an idea. So I took our large round pendant tray and put a puddle of Glaze and Glue directly into the tray.



I then took one of our new larger bling pieces and put it in the center of the tray and filled in around the center with seed beads. I did use my finger to push the seed beads into the glue ( a tool of some sort would probably been better than my finger but I am a crafter) and let this set for a while, probably close to an hour.



It dried rock solid! Now, bear in mind I was experimenting so I will tell you that my finished piece is not as perfect as I would have liked. I actually used a little too much glue. It would probably have been better to use less and add as I went, even layering the glue a bit. I think the edges would have been cleaner around the center bling. Also you could change out the colors of seed beads if you go slower and do more layering.  But...it worked!



Try it and play! I would love to see what you come up with!

Did you find this imformation helpful? Do you have questions for us? Do you have followup questions on this information? Please feel free to leave questions and comments below and I will be happy to answer them for you!
