Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Keep Your Face to the Sun Bangle Bracelet


I love springtime when the warm sunshine overpowers the cool and crisp winter days. When I found this quote by Helen Keller I wanted to incorporate it into a jewelry piece. When going through my stash of creative supplies I found the sunny yellow mosaic tiles and it all came together in this mixed media bracelet.
Supplies: 
  • 3/4” DIY Bangles wooden bangle
  • 3/4” x 3/4” yellow mosaic tiles
  • JudiKins Diamond Glaze
  • Craft Attitude Jewelry Attitude
  • Inkjet printer, word processing program
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue Stick
  • Westcott Titanium Bonded Scissors
  • Plaid Apple Barrel paint – Cloudless, paint brush
  • E-6000 Adhesive
Instructions: 
1. Paint bangle with blue paint and let dry.  I wanted some of the wood to show through, so I only applied one coat of the paint.
2. Type quote in desired font. Paste sun images to document with quote and resize to approximately 3/4”.  To find assorted sun images, I searched the internet for black & white sun images
3. Follow manufacturer instructions to print verse and sun images onto Jewelry Attitude.
4. Use glue stick to apply sun images to yellow tiles.  Mount tiles, evenly spaced around bracelet, using E-6000.

5. Cut verse into pieces to fit between tiles. Use glue stick to apply to painted wood between tiles.

6. Coat entire bracelet with JudiKins Diamond Glaze.
