So roll on scheduled post number two of the week. By now I'm hoping that I've a good dose of gelato and I'm still sunburn free!
Today's 'fab' creation is a 'sweet' reminder about our challenge on A Passion for Papertrey. We want you to be inspired by something sweet!
Now if you don't 'get' this project, let me explain. For my sweet inspiration I took a literal, retro approach and went back to my childhood. I loved fab ice lollies as a kid (Pssst - I still do now!) and was inspired to recreate one. If you remember them/still have them did you have to eat them the same weird way I did? I had to peel off the chocolate layer first, then scoff all the cream layer and finally eat the ice layer. Now you can't eat this version, but it does have a magnet attached to the reverse so it'd jazz up your fridge (or freezer I guess!) :)
- To create the sparkles, I snipped out the tear shaped gems of a patterned bling design. Don't be afraid to cut up patterned bling to make it suit your project!
- To add colour to my sparkles/sprinkles I used a Promarker on the clear gems. Easy! I purchase all my bling in clear and colour it to have perfectly coordinating bling no matter what.
Ciao, peeps! :)
N.B The American Craft Thickers are no longer in production in that style. I've found them here in green though! :)
