A Sequin Love Affair - Dress My Craft

Hello crafty peeps,

I trust you all are doing great :)

Bipasha here to share some creative fun with all the amazing, super strong and talented art enthusiasts. I am sure you all had an amazing time yesterday going through Sampada's extravagant post. It's my turn today to share some craft tips with Dress My Craft's newly launch stunning must haves : Dress My Craft Jewels, Blings .

No one can deny our penchant for sparkle around here and for those of you who already know, I need not stress on how, absolutely gorgeous the sequins by DMC are!

They come in cute reusable jars, around 25g of sparkly magical goodness of assorted different sizes (not just the usual round ones, but much more: stars, triangles, squares etc) in each jar. They are available in different pastel shades. The best part about them is that they give an unique two-tone iridescent effect, changing tone from different angles which makes it a perfect product for adding customised shading effects in your altered arts (yes you hear it right, adding shades with two-toned sequins).

Ready to pin, sew, scatter and stick, sequin embellishments are the perfect finishing touch for any craft project. So, I decided to share three different styles of using these sequins; whether you are a dimensional/mixed media crafter, a card maker, album maker, watercolour & Layout artist/scrapbook, I have got you all covered!

 It's a long image heavy post, so grab your cuppa and enjoy reading!

Funky Alteration (MDF/Fabric/Burlap)

MDF Owl :
I have altered an MDF owl from $2 shop. It was originally in kraft colour, I chalkpainted it in shades of violet and teal, to match my sequin combinations of Sea Breeze & Angel Mix. I separated the sequins of these two colours in 3 sections; light, medium and dark and adhered them in parallel layers to bring the two tone beauty of the sequins in this alteration . I added some funky twist adding some shimmered gears to mimic a crown for my super-stylish owl. I named her "Miss Petula"!

I've adhered all the sequins using dry clear liquid adhesive, you can use a nozzle tip for precise application.

Burlap Bag:
I have been always fascinated with sequin fabrics and dresses so wanted to try using these beauties in fabric. I have stitched a burlap bag and used a linen fabric for its neck and binder and stitched some sequins in circle to add a sparkly twist to it.





Shakers


Shakers are all the rage right now in the world of card making. They can create fun and interactive cards. For my samples, I used Distress Oxide to create a vibrant background, added a sentiment. So grab your sequins and let get shakin' !
Cut the foam tape in half, lengthwise to get thin strips. Then cover all four edges of the white oval bottom cardstock with foam tape. Peel off the backing of the foam tape. Sprinkle some sequins into the middle of the distressed coloured area, then place the acetate on top and cover all the edges with clear glue and a die-cut frame and then add the cute AAllandCreate birdies to the front of the card. Easy!




Canvas Art

Last but not the least if you are just a painter or watercolour artist, I've something in my creative bucket for you too. I created a canvas art with some no-line water colouring technique and ofcourse added some sequins and sentiments to complete the look. It's amazing to see how a little addition of sequins transforms the look of a simple project!




Thankyou for staying with me till the end and to show my appreciation, I am sharing bonus project inspiration for the album makers here. I taught this album "Sweet Chronicles II" for a recent album making workshop and used the beautiful DMC sequins to create the dangler/bookmark and decorate the album cover.

  14. As a competitive business atmosphere developed, the market took a dip on price for Pinoy Tv HD Serials televisions. The quality was what mattered at that point and the televisions just got better. Size started to become a hall mark of this type of television, the screen images got clearer, the size of the screen got larger and you almost felt as if you were sitting in a theatre right at home.
