Crown

Sat­ur­day, I was at The Crafty Scrap­per attend­ing a birth­day crop for my super sweet & awe­some friend Trisha Perkins. At her par­ty, she had Cheryl Dar­row of Ten Sec­onds Stu­dio come and instruct every­one on how to make leather crowns. This was WAY WAY WAY out of my com­fort zone as I’m a vin­tage paper kin­da girl and there was zero vin­tage paper to be found here, but let me tell you I now have a new addic­tion. Work­ing with emboss-able leather is so fun and if you ever have the chance to take one of Cheryl’s crown class­es do it, you will LOVE it!

Cheryl brought her tools  and molds for the non-doo­dle cal­lig­ra­phy girls in the class, which as you can see I was one of those girls. Once every­one had their leather pieces embossed she had us paint them with acrylic paints. When the paint was dry we applied some of her awe­some stain. I stained my crown using the Choco­late Cat­tle-ist stain. It is beau­ti­ful!

After I assem­bled my crown (don’t want to share these instruc­tions because you real­ly need to take her class) I attached iri­des­cent rhine­stone trim and pearls using E6000. This was such a fun project to cre­ate and I will cer­tain­ly be mak­ing more crowns.
