OMG ... this is so fun... hahaha Linda said you'd be saving every bottle ... well I think you'll be searching out every kind of bottle or jar to play with. I did three different items !!!
I've been super busy these past weeks planning and making decorations for a friends wedding; keeping up ( or trying to keep up with) my women's Bible Study Group and just do life . I was stumped for an idea of what to do ( even after all the inspiration from the Crew) ... as I was studying an idea came ... I wanted to do something unique. We are studying Proverbs ... Proverbs 9:10 came to mind " The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom , And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. " My light bulb moment ... I had this cute light bulb and knowledge token ... when I think of wisdom I think of my grandmother; she used to say "pearls of wisdom" ! So my project was born ... a light bulb with pearls !
Following the directions on page 54 I "prepared" the light bulb. I used lake mist alcohol ink to colorize my light bulb ... okay I'm so giddy at this point ... love the look. I dropped five ( five is the number of Grace) pearls from Ideaology baubles in to the light bulb. Then I colorized Tim's ribbon with fossilized amber distress stain tipped with vintage photo distress ink. I further embellished my light bulb with clear baubles, a tear drop pearl and knowledge muse token which I attached to a ribbon and lace bow with a wire pin.
Hope you enjoyed my light bulb LOL ! Don't forget to visit the Curiosity Crews blogs and show them some love. I may or may not be back before deadline ... we shall see :)
