Since Mothers Day is right around the corner I wanted to do some things that would appeal to people who were looking for something specific for Mom's. I really make lots of different things combining heavy card stock paper with all kinds of materials. I stumbled upon some acrylic shapes in Michael's a few months back, buying them on a whim, not really knowing how I would use them. Many of my ideas hit me in the middle of the night. (see my earlier post about my husband being and insomniac) I am up anyway so I think of things to write about or design. During one of these nights I remembered the acrylic shapes and a design started to formulate, so yesterday I set some time aside to put my plan into action.
These are the Mom pendants, I have made so far. The backing of all three is heavy card stock that I layered and then applied a protective coating which makes them very strong. I glued an acrylic shape to each, first lining them with a coordinating card stock. I added Mom and embellished them with some Swarovski crystal bling, finishing them with silver bails and chains.
