I got all nostalgistic seeing them because I remembered back when I was a child my friend would collect seashells and paint them with pretty nail polishes. (She still has them; I not so discreetly pranced over to her place and checked)
It was then that I saw that this bag of seashells had convenient little holes in them for my lazy butt to put thread through.
that is when I decided that I needed to bring these babies home.
Although I really liked the color of some them, I decided to spray paint them gold.
I felt that it did a fabulous job shifting the focus onto texture instead of color. As beautiful as color and pattern can be, sometimes I just want to look at something else. (besides, me? wear color? I think people attending funerals wear more colors than me )
I made many things!
Felt so good being able to make so many different things out of a couple of supplies.
I hate the feeling where you buy so many items just to make one little thing.
Awesome thing was I still have shells left that I can embellish some other plain looking thang.
Out of the many things, here are my several of my favourites
the first one is a pair of super cute studs
small and dainty for your everyday girl and whenever for your I don't care what'chu wearing girl like me.
I made a matching necklace just in case I felt like actually matching my clothes and accessories together
Glittery multi-color rhinestone for your extra special unicorns out there.
the next one was inspired by Disney's ariel and treasure chest
It's a giant melting pot of pearls and shells (ooooh, shiny! )
and that concludes my DIY post today~
