Have you flipped through the latest issues of Adorn or Altered Couture recently? Notice the girl on the first page in black and white stripes up against an orange wall? Guess what, that’s me! I have always loved Duncan and all their products like Aleene’s and Tulip so when they asked me to be a part of their ad campaign that has featured the likes of Kathy Cano Murillo, Traci Bautista and Pattie Donham who was I to say no! The deal was they said we are going to send you a bunch of our Liquid Fusion and Fabric Fusion glues and we want you to go crazy and make a bunch of jewelry for the ad. Talk about a dream job. Besides the fact that both glues really are super strong they are both non-toxic. I'm here to tell you it is hard to find a good glue without a health warning on it so I was pumped to find Liquid Fusion!
First of all I picked a color scheme and my mom was nice enough to help me and gave me a bunch of her vintage Barkcloth for the project. I love how everything turned out and the cool thing is you can go to http://www.duncancrafts.com/crime/ and get all the instructions to make everything yourself. There are instuctions for the purse, headband, earrings, ring, choker and bracelet. Some of the supplies I used you can find in the Naughty Secretary Club Etsy Shop and other items like the Carved Coral Ring you can score on Naughty Secretary Club for yourself.
I also made some other jewelry that is a little harder to see in the ad like a bib necklace, bangle bracelet and pin.
Well guess what you can win some of this jewelry right here on the blog. That's right I have the rings, bib necklace, purse, bracelet and more to give away. I'm going to pick lucky winners one week from today on Monday December 3rd to win some free jewelry. All you have to do is leave me a comment right here related to the project and the ad. Which is your favorite piece of jewelry? Do you have a favorite craft glue? Did you try making any of these jewelry projects yourself? Leave a comment anytime between now and next Monday and you could win one of the pieces of jewelry pictured.
P.S. Special shout out to my amazing friend Cory Ryan for taking the picture, to my friend Alyson for thinking of me for the ad, to my mom Fredda Perkins for helping me sew the purse and to Craft-o-Rama for letting us take pictures in your craftaliscious store.
