Welcome to Chattering Robin's blog.
Michelle here with you today to share
the first phase of my latest project,
featuring products from
The Robin's Nest.
I am creating a lace crown mobile,
to hang in my craft room.
The following are my first 3 crown's
that I have completed.
For this project, I used a variety of Venice lace trims,
glimmer & ink sprays, acrylic interference paint,
rhinestone trims & fabric stiffener,
last and not least of these, I used a variety
of shapes & colors, of the
Robin's Nest Dew Drops.
This is also a collaborative project,
featuring Best Glue Ever
and Embellie Gellie, and Transfer Foils
The first step, is to decide how large
you want the crowns to be.
My measurement in length is 6.5 inches,
the half inch being for the slight
overlap to hold it together.
I then coated each trim, on both sides
with a fabric stiffener, and gave time
to cure on both sides as well. Mine
took an hour or so. This will vary
with product preference.
While in the straightened & stiffens state,
I then spritzed with metallic and glimmer sprays.
Drying each with my heat gun, to start
shaping the lace into rounded shapes.
Next, I used ScraPerfect transfer foils,
very randomly burnishing them over
the surface of the lace,
to add a hint of shimmer.
Once done, I used Best Glue Ever, to
add the embellishments to each crown,
including the RN Diamond Dew Drops & Original Dew Drops
as the "jewels" on each crown.
I also used the BGE to hold the rounded crown shape.
Totally loving the way the first crowns have turned out.
What a fun project this is going to be
