Welcome back! I have another DIY bangle to share with you today. If you follow my blog you may remember that from time to time I like to put the paper aside and pull out the wood burning tools. For this bangle, I used my former Paper Craft Planet DT pal Melanie Muenchinger's gorgeous A Year of Leaves stamps by GinaK.
I stamped the leaves around the bangle blank in a light brown ink. Then using those lines as a guide I went in with the wood burning tool and burned the design. The last time I shared a wood burning project I mentioned that the ease of wood burning all depends on the wood. The DIY Incus Bangles are perfect for wood burning on!!! Smooth. No knots. Perfect! To add some depth to the design, after I finished wood burning all the leaves I went in and added all those dots in the background.
I colored the leaves in with acrylic paints and wiped the entire piece with an antiquing glaze. The only thing left to do is give it coat of shellac to protect it.
I've been tossing around the idea of setting up an ETSY shop for bracelets and cards, but haven't quite gotten around to it yet. If anyone is interested in purchasing a custom bracelet just shoot me an email.
Be sure to stop back because I have one more bangle bracelet to share with you. This one involved raiding my husbands tools. HA HA HA (grunted in my best Tim Allen impersonation)
