Change it Up Blog Hop - B'Sue Creative Group

by Paula Gaskill


The blog hop is sponsored by B'Sue Boutique creative group. Our challenge for this blog hop was to choose one out of four stamping and change it up from the way we would normally use it adding some vintage flair.  
 Mine started with this stamping. Normally we use for making cuffs. It took me a couple of days to figure out what I was going to do with this. As always what I came up with all changed when I received my order from B'Sue's Boutique.  Never mind all that for now. I came up with a real brainier idea to cut this stamping in half. My idea was to take it and make a two stamping necklace. Yeah Right.... easier said than done. All the filing to get the metal smooth. Man was that work. After filing for at least a hour I discovered my dremel. Wow! What a difference! You should try it.

What started as two like I wanted turned into one when I received my order from B'sue's Boutique . I decided I would try several different techniques with this design.

I started Messing with fire.  Brought out the torch. Of course I had to get some lessons from my friend, Harry Wood. thanks for the insight Harry.                        
What's better than mini assemblage? You can do so  much with this technique. I have really missed doing this. While making this I found that I was really drawn back in, and you thought I just did clay.


I was really drawn to this acrylic rauten rose stone that was sent in mygoody bag, the sparkles are amazing. The little dragon just had to protect them while letting you know that this was full of gems, see what they're holding. I added my vintage  flair by adding pearls keys and of course some vintage chain and a tassel of chain and pearls!  I don't think tassel are going anywhere for a while.   This baby will be a hard one to part from, so I decided to build a line of these.
I would like to thank Brenda for testing me and inspiring us all.  

Get your coffee, sit back and join me in checking out all of the participants of this blog hop. Now let's go see what they came up with. Should be Great!!!!
