New Series: Make Your Own Embellishments with ColourArte - PermaStone and Product Packaging

Hi everyone!  Today I am sharing my second video tutorial in my new how to series on making your own embellishments.  I have so many ideas in my head for things to use, and I also get even more inspiration from online websites like Pinterest, as well as some of the many talented artists' blogs.

Today, I will show you how I used the plastic packaging from products I purchased as molds.  If I liked the shape, whether a circle, rectangle, heart, square, etc., I put it to use.  These make excellent substrates for your embellishments, and I even decided to use one of them as a key holder.  But what they all have in common is that I used ColourArte Primary Elements powdered pigments an Vivid Ultra Metallics to bring them to life.

So please check out my video tutorial for some fun ideas, and hopefully spark some inspiration with you!
