PTT Challenge #29

I've been feeling blah, lately.  So, I checked out blogmate, Jenn's challenge Blog (Party Time Tuesdays) for a little inspiration.  This week's challenge was a Sketch Challenge.  I flipped it on its side.  I went with a fall theme since I'm getting ready for "Back to School."  My students come to me next Tuesday.  It's hard to believe summer is over.  Thanks for looking!

I'm back and trying to catch up!

I have been crafting this summer, despite my being MIA from my blog.  I joined a "Handmade Secret Sister Swap" and this is what I made for my sister(s) - I took 2 spots.  
Project #10
These are handmade Carnation Peony Cabochon embellishments.  I used Premo (fimo clay) and silicone molds (found here) from Mold Muse.

Project #11
Porcelain Cameos
These were made with an air dry porcelain compound pressed into silicone molds.  Once the porcelain was dry I painted the background with acrylic paint and brushed the relief with white acrylic paint.

Project #12
Handmade Flowers
The flowers on the left were made with Websters Pages' netting, tissue paper and beads for the center.  I ran the netting and tissue paper through the Cuttlebug using Tim Hotz' s Tattered Flowers die.  I then layered the tissue and netting flowers and held them together with a singe needle and thread stitch.  Finally, I sewed the bead in the middle.  The flowers on the right were made with the Flower Shoppe cartridge and my Cricut machine.  I used a glue and a brad to hold these blossoms together.  The paper was left over from other projects.
More flowers, the middle is made with cardstock and flower die and the two smaller were cut with Cricut and Prima bling is used for the center.
Project #13
The gift tag, I used alcohol ink for the edges.  The background paper is a page out of a novel lightly stamped with a dandelion image ({ippity}).  The sentiment says "for you."
