Need a crown, of course you do!!!
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.
