Stencilled jewelry -A First Take

Hello there fellas!!!
Hope you are doing good. I am slowing getting back to crafting for some time everyday and taking time out to calm my nerves by crafting a bit. 
The festival seasons are upon us at India and this is the right time to start making some jewellery!!!! 
I got out all of my bead boxes and wanted to try something different.  I had these stancils out on my desk left from some paper crafts and scrapbooking and I felt why not use those designs to get some pendants done..
So here are a couple of examples on how you can use stencils and create really beautiful jewellery out of it.
The first one is a damask kind of pattern that is stencilled and converted to a pendant and linked to some very earthy tone stone beads.

The next one is one of my favourites. It has a simple small repeating pattern that I stencilled in and added some lovely violety beads along with shell pearls.

Do let me know what you feel about this guy's and leave me your comments on the same.

Happy Teachers Day - A Day Late...

The supplies are from different Manufacturers, but mostly from two dear Indian manufacturers Craftyscrappers and Mudra. Konica and Varshita and two wonderful souls and I wish them all success at their entrepreneur life.

The card concept: withered florals. I have incorporated flowers with distressed and withered feel to it.

I still wish I can go back to school or college and life the simple life with only studies to worry about! Sigh! Gone are those days!!

Coming back here!, today I ought to be sharing some cards for my teachers (which I will post soon) but I am sharing a decoupage upcycle project that I recently did.

I had this amazing papers from Bob and Betty and the designs were just exquisite that I refused using them up for a long time. But then the perfect opportunity came along and I found the perfect object to alter. It was a glass bottle with a  flip stopper cap. Here is how it looks altered from a plain glass bottle version...

Steps to achieve this effect:

Sand your bottle down with fine grit sand paper so that the Gesso/primer adheres better.Apply several coats of white acrylic paint/spray paint/gesso to give a base coat. I had good coverage with …
