Day 7 was "my day" ~ yay! It's alway exciting when the day that your gifts are to be open by the other people in the swap. (I also got to open Sabina's gift which I can't talk about until the swap is over because some of the other people haven't opened her gift yet).
I created Shabby Chic Keys
for Day 7 of the All-Canadian Valentine ART Swap, which you can take a look at here.
Ingredients for Shabby Chic Keys:
a collection of old keys, Golden gesso (white), appropriate sayings and flat marbles (or whatever the real name is for them), a trusty glue gun, sparkly rope-ish stuff, gemstones and a touch of glitter.
Assigning suitable says was a lot of fun. A few of the sayings I used included: "More Glitter", "Jewellery Queen",
"Tweet Tweet" and "A friend loves at all times".
Most keys are threaded with ribbon or lace. Two of the keys I made into pins that can be attached to a surface or be worn as a brooch.
I like these little creations so much that I may actually make one for myself.
Please leave me a comment below if you have suggestions for what you think my saying should read...
