Sarah Hurley Challenge-Shades of Blue

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my DT card for Sarah Hurley Challenges where our theme is 'Shades of Blue'. I used Sarah's new Gatsby kit for my CAS card which I created in Craft Artist software using a journalling tag and sentiment which I merged for my focal point. I then printed this and some matching paper and arranged this with 3D foam tape under the sentiment. I then added strips of pearls as my only embellishments.

While you are here please pop by and see the fabulous new Lookbook by the Sarah Hurley team :-) Lookbook magazine is here.

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
