Why oh why don't I own a crocheted pillow? I'll have to be on the lookout for one the next time I go junking. Purely for display purposes, of course. It would have been perfect for displaying these kitchy pins I made with dominos and the Crafty Secrets Party Queen Set. I have been itching to start experimenting with the Copic markers, and last night I finally had a chance to see if they'd really stick to shiny surfaces, like dominoes. I'm happy to say they do, however they don't blend very smoothly. The effect I got with them is more 'watercolory' than smooth, but I think they worked ok. I had it in my head that I'd do some party queen pins...wouldn't these be perfect for a girls night out or a 50th' birthday party? I had to glam the girls up with the crown from the Party Queen set and bling them up with Hero arts small clear gemstones. If you don't have Copics, Sharpies work just fine, in fact, the colors are more vivid. Do they have flesh or peach colored sharpies? Anyway, the girls are covered in a protective top coat called Duraclear Gloss Varnish, recommended to me by Cindy Lyles (Starlitstudio). You can get it at Michael's stores. The pin backs are cheapies from Michael's, also.
