Growing in Unity–Day 3

Woohoo!! We’ve made it to mid week.

We’ve got another trick up our sleeve today… I don’t know why I’m speaking in plural, it’s just me, hehe!!

Today it’s a spin on a bookmark.  Although i f you want you could make it into a couple of different things, so I will be showing quite a few pictures.

Spoon

You can get a set of 4 spoons at WalMart for $.97.  I then used StazOn to stamp my image on the inside of the spoon.  You can then use your choice of filler, I used Nunn Design Gel du Soleil that I had gotten when I was at Inspired.  However you could use Ice Resin, Glossy Accents, Diamond Glaze, etc.

Here’s a more close up so you can see some more of the detail.

Once it all dries, bend the spoon into shape & add embellishments.

SpoonFull

Now this is where I’m going to say you can do some other things other than just bookmarks.  You could remove most of the shank of the spoon and make it into a pendant.  Or you could stamp on some words or pics then use it for makers.  That’s just to get your juices flowing.

I’m not saying this is a perfect fit for our challenge over at All Things Unity this go round but it’s close with our spoon.  Feel free to go check it out and play along with go up for the prize.

Thanks for coming over today!!
