I was actually inspired to make this medallion by my friend Amy from While Wearing Heels, when she made this....
|Fragile Hearts Made of Clay|
I really like playing with clay. I usually use Sculpey or Fimo clay because I find that I have less fails with those store brands. I also have some cool clay tools that I got from Hobby Lobby.
You don't need to have these tools. If you read what they do, you can improvise with things already have.
I made a ball out of some white clay and then flattened it out to a circle using a can of vegetables from my pantry. I have a beautiful glass plate that has a raised graphic design on the back side and I made an impression of it on the medallion.
I put it the medallion on a foil covered cookie sheet and baked it according the directions on the package of clay.
I got out a few supplies from my craft room....
I made a circle slightly larger than my medallion out of some black paper and used the textured white paper sample for my main background. After playing around with the gems for a bit, I decided that just one faux black pearl one was enough.
I had fun doing this knock off project. If you have a project that you would like to enter in our Inspiration Cafe "It's a Steal" link party, get started on it because our party will open on June 10th. That should be plenty of time for you to find some inspiration from another blogger and do a post. Please don't forget to ask permission and give proper credit links!
Thank you Amy and Mary! Y'all are awesome!
