|For this card, I made it red, white, and blue but tried not to make it too patriotic. I used buttons for the circles on the right side of the card and added twine through the holes.|
For the outside of the dryer, I painted a blue sky, green grass, assorted colors of flowers, and on the top are white clouds. The left picture is the back of the dryer and the right picture is one of the sides.
The inside of the dryer is black and I used two wooden skewers that are taped together with duct tape It's a little saggy in the center but the charms don't seem to slide down (yet). I also added some colorful paperclips for holding the charms when they are drying. I can't wait to use this. It's such a pain to not have a place to hang all my charms when the glaze is drying.
I used a tutorial for this clay dryer that I found on YouTube. I'll share that with you too. Mine's quite a bit different but this is pretty much where I got the idea for the dryer.
The next project is a very special one to me. Almost two years ago, my cat Violet passed away. My nephews and I had made a cross for her using sticks and twine. Not a very durable cross. About a month ago, we had a really bad wind storm that knocked some branches off the tree that Violet is buried under and the branches broke Violet's cross. My mom and I got her a new wooden cross from Michael's that I wanted to paint. I finally painted it. Here is Violet's new cross!
I hope you liked all the projects I've shared with you today. I'll be back tomorrow with some swaps. Until then, TTFN Ta ta for now.
