I am very excited to take part in the Makin's Clay Blog Hop. My project is super easy to create. Fast to create too.
You know that individual water bottle that you are tossing into the recycle bin? Take the top and bottom off one bottle. Then, slip the cut bottle onto your wrist like you would a bracelet. Is it too large? Cut the bottle and tighten it as much as you need. Then, use masking tape to secure the bottle to the right width.
Roll out the clay and cut it to 2 by 7-inches. Place the texture sheet on top of the cut clay and use the roller to impress the texture into the clay.
Wrap the clay around the bottle so it is like the shape in the above photograph . If they clay is too long, cut the clay to match the bracelet in the photograph. Press the ends lightly to bond the clay ends together.
Roll out a piece of clay and use the rectangle cutter to make the rectangle. Press the rectangle onto the bracelet to secure it. Press the Snap in Style embellishment onto the rectangle.
Now, here's the hard part. Let the clay dry for 24 hours. Once the clay is dry, you slip it off the bottle and onto your wrist.
The beauty of this clay is that the bracelet really looks like it is made of leather. Only you will know the true material.

Last Sunday, I had the honor of demonstrating the new Tulip ScreenIt at Michaels Arts and Crafts Store in Dickson City, PA.
Regina, from Michaels, was so helpful and I really enjoyed the time I spent with her. She made sure I was next to the front door and even brought additional boxes of the ScreenIt for the display.
It was so much fun to print my designs on the cotton fabric. I also wanted to show how versatile the ScreenIt is so I created a fun collage to match the fabric. Imagine making your own napkins, table cloth and wall art for your next party.
The Tulip fabric paint goes onto the fabric wonderfully. And you can use the screen 75 times! This has become one of my favorite tools to use. I'm sure you will love it too.
