Altered Lanyard’s

Happy Happy New Year, Welcome back to another fun and creative new year ahead of us. I hope everyone had a great and safe time. And I look forward to a bigger and better year to come.

I have a fun little project today. I really need to find some time to relax and paint. This little project did just that for me. A quick project between work and holiday events. I needed a small gift for a co-worker. I have extra lanyards, (they break when you least need them to.)

I started out by picked out some Steampunk Keys, I wasn’t sure if I was going to cut them or use the whole key, I figured us Nurses  can be pretty hard on things I have to make them fairly small and compact. I decided to trim the teeth portion off the chipboard.

I then layered a gears from the small Gears Set 2 over the base gears and topped it of with a quick metal piece. Using a heavy gel medium to hold things together really good.

Once they were all dry, I topped off with some layers of my favourite texture and paint combo! A little dry brushing to highlight the texture and, done! a quick and easy gift for a co-worker.


Thank you for stopping by today and checking out this creative project. Happy Happy New year.
