A huge big welcome to all of you joining in on our Twiddleybitz RAKamania Blog hop!!!!!!!!!
And what a hop we have - I have seen some absolutely mind blowing sneak peaks of the projects the wonderful Twiddley Angels have come up with and you are in for some fun and loads of inspiration :)
Now we have a HUGE hop planned and my blog is only the very start!!!!!! From here you will hop over to TRUDI HARRISON (9pm AEST, 11pm NZ, 8:30pm SA, 6pm WA) where she will have the link to the next Angels blog :)
Remember along the way you MUST collect the secret words - these will be highlighted in each angels post and when you put them together (they will be given in order!) it will create a sentence :) Then you must send a personal message with this sentence to Sandra Wallace on the Twiddleybitz ning to be in the running for a cool prize!!!! Every Twiddley Angels has a RAK along the way as well and keep checking back to both our Facebook page and the Ning site for more RAKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Told you we have a lot of fun in store for you all :)
Right - now I have done the business side of things lets have some fun and start off the Inspiration - first up
( ^ ;) hint hint!!!!)
an empty Palmolive dishwashing liquid bottle......and cut off the very top bit you open and shut to pour out the liquid.
and grab a paintbrush and some modpodge :) Tear up your chosen paper (here I have used Graphic 45's New Christmas Emporium A Christmas Carol) and ink your edges :)
You then simply modpodge your bottle stick on the paper and modpodge over the top :) Easy - Cover the whole bottle - your fingers will get very messy here!!!
Then it is simply a matter of popping an old zip up the front and embellishing your Angel :)
I have simply embossed the Twiddley wings large with copper before gluing to the back of my Angel. Some lace down the bottom and either side of the zip with a vintage button or two and I was done!!!!!!!! (Helmar 450 glue is the best for applying ribbons and lace!)
and a close up :)
Now I do have to say this wasn't my idea but a dear friend of mine!!!!!!!!!!! Hers are beautiful and I am hoping she will email through some pic's for me to pop up as well for you soon! It is very quick and easy to make and Lyn's have been mounted on a long screw through a block of wood and into the bottom of the bottle (I am still trying to organise this on my end!)
