Amate-Give Thanks

So, as you all know, I am just a tad bit behind on my posts since November. {{giggle}} Today, will start on a little catching up of my posts starting off with Amate Studios project for November. I had the pleasure of working with them at their CHA booth doing some fun make and takes!! They have some new products releasing soon so stay tuned!

Amate Studio products are so versatile, it doesn't require using the components for jewelry. In this project, I used two small pendants and an earring set to achieve what was in my mind for this. I went to my local HL and bought a small decorative foam pumpkin that was covered in some clear beading. I had some craft wire which I cut in various lengths and poked through the top of the pumpkin, once I curled the tops of the wire. I then printed out my pictures in the sizes that I need and sealed them with some acrylic spray. This was done because I have an inkjet printer so the colors would run if not sealed. I glued the pictures to the component and filled each one with Judikins Diamond Glaze. I finished them off by outlining the charms with silver micro beads for a little decorative touch. I then hot glued some autumn buttons around the stem of the pumpkin. For the center, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on some brown shimmer cs, embossed it, and glued it to a non-Amate Studios frame. I finished that off added a couple of buttons to that. Once the charms dried, I hung each one onto the wire! It was a rather simple project and I really enjoyed making it!

I hope you enjoyed this and I appreciate you stopping by!! Have a great day!!
