Friendly Plastic


Finally got to do some crafting again today, after shovelling snow yesterday!!!
I was experimenting with my friendly plastic after getting my bend it, shape it dvd by Liz Welch which you can buy from her shop along with any other accessories you might need.  Visit her blog for some more fab ideas or watch Create and Craft at 9am in the morning, she has an hour show.


The piece on the left is angelina fibres oozing through a piece of wire mesh.  The middle one is three small teardrops melted onto a strip and feathered down the middle.  I pressed an 's' shaped hook into the edges.  For the one on the right I melted three squares into the strip and used the end of an embossing tool to make the dimple pattern.  Each purple square is housing a purple bead.


I then got a little more adventerous.  Using mosaic techniques I made a necklace and a keyring.



Lastly I collected all my left overs and melted them together.  I think I could have made them into a small bowl if I'd of shaped them but as it is, I can add them to a piece of farbic and sew into them.
