Friday Tutorial: Bombshell Bracelets

Hi Bombshell Friends!  Happy Friday!!

Emily here! I hope you were able to participate in the "Bring the Heat" Hop sponsored by our friends at the Smeared & Smudged community.!

I know there is another tutorial on here made by the fabulous Alison! Her tutorial inspired me to do my own. So I guess you can call this Wooden Bracelet Part 2 :) For the original you can follow this link-->HERE<--

I am currently addicted to altering these wooden bracelets. They are quite fun, even for someone like me who doesnt wear jewelery!

You will need:
-Wooden Bangle/Bracelet
-White tissue paper
-Permanent markers (I used Prismacolor marker, and Bic Mark its.)
-Stamp of your choosing
-Mod Podge
-Foam Paint Brushes
-Distress inks, and Stickles optional.

First I stamped all my images on tissue paper. Colored all images I liked, that needed color. I stamp a ton of the little images, because sometimes the icons are fun for filling up "empty space".

Once colored to my liking... I Mod Podge my bracelet to give me a sticky base to lay my images on. Once its not SUPER gooey, I cut out my images and lay them nicely on the bracelet and try not to get any wrinkles, or air bubbles.

Once they are set to my liking, I do brush over with Distress inks, and stickles if wanted. Then!!! Another layer of Mod Podge. I usually find that a soda can, is the best "holder" to let it dry! I usually wait some time to air dry then its ready to wear!!
 The Bracelet on the bottom Left was following Alison's tutorial.

Hope you enjoy!

Much Love,
