I find watching Cool2Craft and other live shows very inspiring. I decided to try my hand at making beads. I started with glossy card stock, similar to photo paper, and used my Cuttlebug to emboss the paper. I used the edge embossers because they are small in width.
Once it was dry I used Gloss Gel Medium to apply one coat.
I then applied 2 coats of Gloss varnish.
I have made 5 more beads and I can't decide how I want to string them yet.
For now I can only be proud of the one I am displaying; inspired by the creative people I choose to 'hang' with. :)
