Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

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 almost 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!

Glittered Easter Egg Wreath - DCC Blog Hop


It's the first Monday in March, which means it's time for the Designer Craft Connection blog hop!   This month we were challenged to create a project inspired by something we had seen in a retail store or online, etc.   My Glittered Easter Egg Wreath was inspired by the wreath below I saw at Pier I.   Mine is much simpler, by design, but still combines the elements of a grapevine wreath, spring flowers, and shimmering glittered Easter eggs.  I prefer chunky glitter, and JudiKins Roxs™ are my favorite.

Be sure to follow the Designer Craft Connection link in the column on the right to see what the other participating designers are sharing.

Materials:

Grapevine wreath
Smoothfoam™ eggs
JudiKins - Diamond Glaze™
               - Roxs™ - pink, green, light blue
               - Snappy Tray™
AdTech Hot Glue Gun
Artificial spring flowers
Wire cutters

Instructions:

Coat each Smoothfoam™ egg with Diamond Glaze™ - while still wet, cover one egg with each color of Roxs™.  Let dry.  Optional - you can paint your eggs first if
desired - Smoothfoam's smooth texture is perfect for painting - I wanted the white to show through a bit on my egg to highlight the chunky aspect of the glitter clearly so I left mine white.

Determine desired arrangement of flowers, trim stems and hot glue in place on grapevine wreath.

Hot glue glittered eggs over flowers on wreath.
