Hi, I wonder how many of you realised that you can make really sturdy jewellery with chipboard? I have made a brooch using a piece that is really intended to hang on a chain. Its around 1 and a half inches in size and you get 3 in a pack.
I have used a Tando Creative Jewellery Heart to make a brooch. This comes with a top and bottom section that you glue together. For the top I have painted in Pebeo Studio Acrylic in Titanium White. When that was dry I watered down a little of the Mars Black and, using a fine brush, dabbed some onto the white to make it look like it was marbelled. For the base I painted it in Mars Black then glued the two pieces together. Taking the Pebeo Prisme Fantasy in Onyx ( so pretty when its dry) and using a dropper I filled the centre of the heart. When it was all dry I added Crackle Accents to the outer piece and Glossy Accents to the inside. While the Glossy Accents was still wet I added a bead. The padlock and key Charms plus the crown were coloured with a Letraset Promarker in Black and added using a jump ring and the Crown added to the other side. I backed the whole thing with felt and added a brooch finding.
Thank you so much for taking a look, HUGS, Karen xxx
