Brave Mixed Media Pendant



Today I have this sweet little pendant to share with you. It started out being a plain piece of book board, but with a few embossing enamels and embellishments it turned out to be a whole lot more!

Here's what you'll need from the G&P shop:
Fine Feathers Necklace (CA111) or a Bezel of your choice
Embossing Enamel Micro White
Embossing Powder Ultra Thick Clear
Embossing Enamel Vintage Silver
Bling on a Roll Silver
Glastique Gloss

Other Supplies:
tiny flower
scrap paper
Tim Holtz Bird & Cage Die
scrap of tissue paper
black ink
small alphabet set



This bezel is from the Fine Feathers Necklace set. Using the Embossing Enamel Adhesive, apply and heat 3 layers of Micro White. (One layer at a time.) Let cool.

Using the Glastique, apply the Bling on a Roll around the edges. I cut the Bling into 3 'stone' pieces, so I could follow the edge of the bezel, keeping the circle shape.


Using a brush apply the Embossing Enamel Adhesive the edge of the bezel. Work in small sections, one area at a time. Dip the edge into a small pile of Vintage Silver. Heat and repeat until the outside edge is covered. Let cool.

Stamp 'brave' onto the scrap tissue paper. Use a small amount of the Glastique to adhere it to the center of the bezel.

Sprinkle on the Ultra Thick Clear. (I have found that the Ranger Heat Tool works great to start the powder melting. It usually doesn't blow off any of the powder. Be patient; it does take a minute or two to heat up the power. Once it has begun to melt, I get out my regular heat tool and quickly finish.) 

Let go of perfection and watch the magic happen!


Die cut the bird. Trim to fit. Cut tiny flags out of the scrap papers.

Use the Glastique to adhere the bird, flags and flower.


I love perfectly imperfect edges and the wave in the word brave. Charming, wouldn't you say?

Thanks for stopping by today.

Inky hugs,
Angi

I LOVE THIS - TODAY I DO NOT FEEL BRAVE - I FEEL FRUSTRATED, SO THIS WAS A NICE REMINDER.

Hugs! I needed this reminder, too. It's how the pendant came to be. :)
