Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with some candles I decorated with lyrics from some of my favourite Alkaline Trio songs. I used a set of colour changing LED candles with a controller so they will last longer than traditional candles and have lots of different 'looks'.
I printed the lyrics out and traced them onto tissue paper, and did the same with the heartskull for the largest candle. I then stamped stars and butterflies because they related to the lyrics. I then used greaseproof paper wrapped around the tissue paper I placed on the candles and heated it until the tissue paper disappeared.
Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a piece of art I created inspired by my favourite band Alkaline Trio.
First of all I designed the image on crafting software. The heart skull is their logo and I wanted to create incorporating it into the design. I printed onto a heavy canvas style cardstock.
I then sewed and glued fairy lights on the inside of my canvas. When I was done I cut the design to size and glued it to the front of the canvas. Next I made tiny little pin holes around the swirls and music design to allow little areas of the design to be highlighted.
Hey everyone, I hope you are well! I am here with a make using an older method with a newer material. I love the stamped candle technique but I wanted to experiment and see if I could make it work on the new LED no flame candles because they are safer than a naked flame.
I bought some LED candles from a store, some white tissue paper, grease proof paper, and got out my stamps and ink pads.
Before I started with each candle I checked they worked with batteries inserted. Worse thing would be finding out the stamped creation didn't work and that you couldn't get a refund! Remember to remove the batteries before starting the process.
I stamped onto the white tissue paper, cut closely around the image and placed where I wanted it on the candle. I then wrapped the grease proof paper around the candle and used my heat tool to melt it into the wax. It worked fine! I was very pleased that it still worked fine when I returned the batteries after the candle cooled too.
This way the candle lasts much longer than a standard candle and you can make flame less candles which are safer for those with young children or have general forgetfulness or clumsiness like me!
Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a Vintage butterfly wings 3D display. I used an image of butterfly wings from a vintage book found on the graphics fairy site. I printed it twice so I could use a layer for 3D wings.
I carefully cut out just the wings from one of the printed sheets and then to make them appear like real butterfly wings I shaped them with a curve and attached 3D foam pads on the outer edges of the outside of the wing. I then dipped the inside of the wing in pva then placed them on the other printed sheet. That way the wing curves up like its real.
I mounted onto a sheet of cardstock covered with cotton and then placed in a box frame.
