A few weeks ago I made a list of new consistent, weekly or monthly blog features that I wanted to start including. Over the last year (I cannot believe it has been a year!), I've realised that while I love plus size fashion and ootds, there is a lot more I want to include here. Right after deciding to change things I got into quite the depressive funk, so didn't do much about it, but now I will be initiating some of the new features.
I may have mentioned here that I love to diy and craft all sorts of things, but I don't know if I've said that I am returning to college this September to do a jewellery course. I've been making basic jewellery for almost 3 years and often sketch out more complicated pieces, these days I am far more experimental. So here I have two resin brooches that I've been playing around with.
If you know me well, you know I love pirates & glitter, so the first idea I got when using the resin was a glittery crossbones! I may have made this one a little too thick, but I really like how chunky & 3D it is, especially if you put on the lapel of a jacket. :)
This is a much more simple shape, but I was experiementing with what I could suspend in the resin, so I went to a craft store and got a load of diffeent size glitters & sequins. I like how these very large pieces of glitter give a very random pattern, though I did learn that they can trap little air bubbles, which can be seen on the surface. Not too distracting, but the reason I experiment is to learn! :)
Sorry about the pictures I am off to my friend's house for the night, so I am putting this up to queue for Monday, so they were taken very quickly.
Hope you guys like my brooches. :)
Do any of you make jewellery or any other crafty activity?
