Barrette blanks and coupon

Good morning and thanks for joining me today.  First let me apologize for the delay in my post.  I was supposed to post on the 13th, but last week we had a really bad ice storm and and we were without power, heat and water for 3 days.  Let me tell you that was not fun.  We have a lot of mess to clean up because during the storm we lost a couple of trees and then we got 8 inches of snow on top of the ice.  It's been a very trying time, but I'm looking forward to getting back on track.  Thanks for your understanding and so without further ado...
I have had these barrette blanks for awhile and really had no idea what I would do with them until now.  I added the green Jewel Effects to some 3d crystal lacquer and filled the blanks.  I didn't use very much of the green and it gave this a very glassy look.
Sorry about the blurry picture.

I also used the purple Glitz Effects and sprinkled a few bits into the blanks.  Then I added some of the 3d crystal lacquer on top of the glitz.  Some of the flakes floated to the top giving it a bumpy affect.  I love it.

These dried in about 20 minutes, but I suggest leaving them set up for at least 24 hours to make sure they set up completely.

This is such an easy and quick project and I hope you might go out and purchase some blanks and create your own barrettes.  

Also, don't forget during the month of April there is a sale for the crystal lacquer.  Use the coupon code terri04 to get 20% off at Sakura Hobby and Craft and then go and create something.

Thanks for joining me and I hope to see you again soon and as always, have a great day and God bless.
