My grand daughter has a birthday coming up soon, and I wanted to make her something special. She will be 14, and the only one that takes after her grandma so far. She loves to create, (she is a painter) and she thinks her grandma can make anything.
Last month we went to visit my daughter and family, my grand daughter asked me to make two necklaces, one with a key charm the other with a lock charm. Both with a metal tag that says Besties.
She wanted the necklaces for her best friend, and herself. I forgot to take a picture (maybe I can get my daughter send me a picture later) but I must say that they turned out pretty cute.
While we were there visiting I noticed she was wearing a necklace with an owl all the time. My daughter said she loves owls, and that is her favorite necklace.
Well it just so happened while I was at Hobby Lobby one day, checking out the clearance aisle I ran across a cute little owl charm.
Well I didn't have a stone to fit, so I had to think on it a little while, then came up with Mod Podge's Dimensional Magic. Now all I needed was something to add to it.
First I thought about seed beads, I could crush them and sprinkle around then fill with Demensional magic, but was afraid that might not look good.
Finally I decided to put a piece of scrapbook paper for the background, then place a few words from a page of an old book (that I use just for that purpose) on top of the scrapbook paper, then I added my dimensional magic.
What would you have done? Would you have set a stone in the belly of the owl charm? Any ideas? I still have one more charm to go.
