Tea For One & Smoothfoam Too

Got you with that title didn't I?
So glad I could share my project today, it is one of my favorite ideas- altering vintage items.
Using a vintage tea cup and saucer and a Smoothfoam Ball I was ready to make some magic.
 1. Make sure you have a ball that will fit and still have a little wiggle room for adornment.
 2. Set your ball up somewhere that you can paint and allow to dry. I used  Dragon fruit Americana Deco art Paint.
 3. I used a heavy duty glass glue to hold my teacup to my saucer.
4. Once my ball was dry it is ready to embellished.
 5. Using a boa pieces and pearls,and paper flowers, I was able to make a decorative piece that could be used to hold jewelry or even decorative pins.
Because Smoothfoam has such a wonderful texture-the ball is able to hold my decorative pins without them drooping.

Some additional supplies I used:
Dragon fruit Americana Deco art Paint
Ranger Diamond Stickles
I Am Roses Flowers

Jewelery and A Giveaway too!

Jewelery is something I have always wanted to do, and was always intimidated.
Certainly Not Anymore!!!

I am so thrilled to share with you Cousin Premier jewelery.

Welcome to another monthly blog hop project with Designer Crafts Connection.
The Designer Crafts Blog Connection is a group of professional Arts & Crafts industry designers, who are linked together to support each other and industry manufacturers with one objective - to share their love of crafts with as many people as possible.  .

 After you finish here, click on the DCC logo over to the right there in the sidebar and hop to the next blog. Look for the same logo on each blog's sidebar to continue hopping.
Don't forget to Look for this logo on your favorite craft blogs then hop around for inspiration. You'll be glad you did!

I was so thrilled when this box came to my house! This is a quick view of all the goodies I received.
Let me share one quick project I finished for today and then I have a giveaway of a slide bracelet for one  lucky person to put together.

 Couldn't resist this RED slider  pieces- aren't those slider pieces fabulous?
Everything is here to put together this bracelet.
 First I put the pieces together this way because I was going to add a different accent. I decided I wanted to show you how to use the rubber spacers that come with the leather bracelet.

 Here is a view of my bracelet put together drying and ready to be worn as is. I chose to add a few accents at this point but they are certainly not needed.

Here is my giveaway I am sharing with one lucky person.
All you need to do is leave a comment letting me know you would like to be considered for the set from Cousin. It will include the blue leather bracelet, the owl slider set, and the end caps. I will also include the small tube of glue to attach your end pieces with.
A winner will be chosen  Saturday April 13th and posted   Sunday April 14th. Don't forget to check back and see if you have won.

Thank you to Cousin   for being so generous and watch for more beautiful jewelery pieces I will be sharing soon from the additional pieces I received in the box above.
