Hi friends! I had a stack of half painted pictures (aka step outs from filming my Craftsy class) but I couldn’t bear to toss them. I figured I could swatch paint on the back or gesso over them and paint with acrylics on top but then it hit me! I could die cut them with tiny dies and turn them into unique light weight earrings! You could also use lightweight cardboard (cereal box weight) to make these if you don’t have old watercolor paper hanging around.
Watch the video to see how easy it is to make these. Use the small dies you have and make something truly unique!
- Watercolor paper or thin cardboard
- leaf dies
- watercolor paint
- clear ink
- embossing powder (UTEE)
- gold embossing powder
- gold ink
- mica powder or aqua bronze (optional)
- glass glitter
- beads in fall colors
- gold eye pins and ear wires
- round-nosed pliers
- Heat tool
*note if you don’t have embossing powder and clear ink you can use clear nail polish or any other clear sealer that is non toxic.
