silhouette pendant necklaces

 
 
hope your mother’s day was lovely ♥
i just want to say how touched i am 
the love & sweet words that flooded my email & comments were so kind!
the thought that you all would love my little space so much was amazing…
i can’t wait to hear all about what you’ve done with new ideas
 
(oh, and for those who asked about plans for the table construction…
the hubs is going to work something up for me, 
since he did have graph paper plans and i’ve since lost them! yikes…
i’ll try to put something up within the next week)
 
my girlfriend made beautiful pendants with silhouettes of her two daughters 
inspired from pinterest … and i knew when i saw them i wanted to give them a try!
(which is simple to use once you get a feel for it)
i made my girls’ silhouettes and added vintage flower graphics from here
i made one for myself and another for my mom
though these would really be a sweet gift for any occasion
 
 
pendants are from Hobby Lobby
chains were from Joanns
 
 
 
skipping the top coats over the faces resulted in the dimensional magic seeping through my paper, leaving blotchy marks that were not cute…shoulda taken a pic for you to see 😦
i would say do 2-3 coats taking care to go right up to the edges (don’t worry it all dries clear)
 
 
 
this was my first time experimenting with dimensional magic…it’s well…magic!
in the top pic you can see the sheen from just the mod podge, the second shows the 
D-magic…it applies very cloudy, but also dries clear…
the package recommends 3 hours drying time
i left mine overnight and noticed in the a.m. that when it dries it sorta shrinks
you can keep adding layers of dimensional magic until you’re happy with how it looks…
i was going for a beveled/dome/more puffy effect 🙂
it will dry clear each time
the jump rings are optional…it can be hung directly from a link on the chain
to have the pendants lay more flat, put them on the ring, 
then add the ring to a link on your chain
