LAST POST FROM OUR AUGUST GDT - CAROL FOX

Today sees the last post from Carol Fox who has been our very first GDT - we would like to Thank Carol for joining us this month and for creating some stunning pieces.... to finish off her stint here she has created this gorgeous post:-


Button Up Bracelet



This week is Button Week and I have made a bracelet using a couple of Grab bags of Buttons.



This is what I did

·       I used the dotted star mask and applied grunge paste through the mask to both sides of my button pieces. I used the smaller buttons from two grab bags as these were a nice size to join with jump rings.
·       When the Grunge paste was dry I painted both sides with cream paint.
·       When this was dry I used various colours of treasure gold to colour and give my buttons a metallic finish.
·       I now joined them together with jump rings, adding a clasp and a small bead to the ends, so if the bracelet was adjusted for the length when being worn, it would have a dangly end and look more finished, you can see this in the following photo.



This is my last project this month as a guest on the Tando blog and I would like to thank Di, Carol and the rest of the Tando team to making me feel so welcome. I have really enjoyed my stay here.  Carol Xx
