Make a 4" x 4" template from a scrap of printer paper, fold in half, and punch a hole through both halves near the edge, as shown.
I was going for an old parchment paper look, so I added a very watered-down wash of Yellow Ochre, dabbing with a paper towel to get the color variations desired.
Hit the high spots (the music notes) with Charcoal.
Next, I had made quite a few embellishment pieces using the Delight™ modeling material and various push molds. Delight™ dries more flexible, even when it is a bit thick, so I used it for my embellishments in case I needed the flexibility. So I laid out my three coasters, arranging my tiny pieces to see how I want to place them. Nothing is glued down at this time.
Add your jump rings through each of the eyelets, as shown below. The larger jump rings go through the eyelets, then a smaller jump ring is used to join them.
Here are some close-up views of the pieces. Don't you just love this little bird nest?
Whew, I know this is a long post, but I have to admit, I had a blast making this piece. I absolutely love working in mixed media, and Creative Paperclay® and Delight™ are certainly going on my list of mixed media to use for my altered art. So, what will you make with it? Well, you have a chance to show us.
