Eco-friendly Natural Artterro Art Kits for Kids

Here’s a peek inside Artterro’s Collage Jewelry Kit that I received featuring wooden pendants, beads and a bangle bracelet that you can embellish and decoupage with a wide variety of papers and beads included within this kit. The kit also includes cotton cord, jewelry findings for necklaces and earrings, two brushes, glaze and instructions.

DIY Decoupage Jewelry and Bangle Bracelet

For this project, Hunter, from down the street came over to lend some of her creativity. Her favorite project was the bangle bracelet.

How to Make Decoupage Collage Jewelry

For this project she used a brush to “paint” on Artterro’s gloss glaze onto the wooden bangle, applying decorative tissue papers onto the glaze and then painting over them.

She repeated this all the way around the wooden bangle bracelet until it was completely covered, then allowed it to dry.

How to Make DIY Collage Decoupage Jewelry

She applied the same method to the pendants she turned into necklaces. She also glued bead onto some of these as well.

Homemade Valentine's Day Gift Ideas - Creative Ideas for Custom DIY Handmade Gifts - Hand Embroidered Paper Cards and Keepsakes
Remember those sewing card books you could buy at the grocery store when you were a kid? They had pre-punched holes to sew around colorful images with yarn and huge plastic needle. I loved those! My favorites were always the Holly Hobby ones. Well this embroidered journal page (pictured above) from One Sheepish Girl brought back those awesome memories and has me kicking myself for not picking up needles and embroidery thread when I was out at A.C. Moore on Saturday.
I love the idea of paper embroidery. It’s a great way to save your favorite memories and make a terrific keepsake to pass down through generations in your family. You could use paper embroidery to customize a blank journal to give as a gift, to create a souvenir of your relationship with someone special, or simply embroider an image onto card stock to make a lovely handmade Valentine’s Day card.

White Bear Accessories Hand Painted Jewelry Giveaway

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

This past weekend I was introduced to Lindsay, a wonderful jewelry artist and owner of White Bear Accessories. The minute I took a peek inside her shop I was fascinated by her work. Lindsay is a self proclaimed mix of part princess and part hippie. But most of all, she is a jewelry designer, actor, promo model, real estate agent and professional beach bum. She has been designing jewelry for 15 years and is proud to finally be able to bring her creations to the world through her etsy shop. A native New Yorker, Lindsay moved to Miami Beach in 09′ to pursue happiness. And I think she must have found it as her shop definitely reflects all those good things that come from living a joyful life.
