I’ve been pondering puzzle pieces lately—as a craft medium and metaphor for life. Somewhere along the mental stroll, I was reminded of the old Girl Scouts song “Make New Friends” which goes
Make new friends But keep the old One as silver And the other gold
Today’s project was inspired by the way friends fit into our lives like puzzle pieces, the song, and the best friend necklaces I swapped with those close to me back in the day. Metallic silver and gold Creative Mediums and letter stamps were a perfect combination to turn a couple puzzle pieces into jewelry charms.
Whether you are trying to create a marbleized background or some fun embellishments, using Creative Medium and some Brilliance Inks makes a perfect combo to create an amazing marble effect with the perfect amount of shimmer.
In the video below Nadine Carlier shows exactly how she did it.
