Some Art and a journey of discovery from a corner of my World.
Things that inspire me, family, art, travel, beauty and peace.
I hope you will enjoy following my artful journeys through my pictures and photos.
here's an idea . Buy a small puzzle in a museum shop or gallery. Carefully write a letter on the back of it and break pieces apart. Mail in an envelope and recipient has to put puzzle back together to read the sentiments. I bought mine at a Da Vinci exhibit.
the wonderful garden sculptures are created using the tree fern in the bush, upper right, as a model. Below the center wooden piece is a fantail birdie and next to it a morepork. These are all set in a beautiful garden gallery.
If you want to put elastic on one project. Thread like this and knot the ends together. Drop of glue to secure.
The other view I made rustic wire coils to join tiles together and added magnetic clasps to ends with jump rings. I hope you enjoy this tute, let me know how they turn out. Buy the Grafix on the net, no problem. i can find it here in the islands. aloha
Print out your pictures, 9 to a sheet. They should be 2.5 x 3.5", will shrink to about half size. Cut out and round the corners. You can do it with scissors too. Punch holes , two on each side. If you want to join with elastic do all same way. For a clasp, punch one hole on clasp ends.
Use a pencil or chopstick to gently hold plastic when using heat gun.
Use heat gun or oven on 250. It will curl towards heat so keep flipping over. To cool and keep flat, place a piece of cardboard on top and hold till it keeps shape. Note that the ends on this bracelet will have a magnetic catch so put the holes apposing each other, one hole on the catch side, two on the joining side. Good idea to lay out in order you want the bracelet to be made.
