Does My Hair Look Big Like This?
by Trish Latimer
Create a painted background on a square piece of cardstock, using pink, turquoise and black paint. Stamp circles and dots with turquoise paint. Edge with pink paint. Stamp the woman onto a scrap of white card then cut out. Position the head on the background, and lightly draw around it, then remove. Using this outline as a guide, stamp black swirls using the free stamp to mimic hair. Stamp the swirl onto acetate using paint, and cut out when dry. Adhere the acetate over the top of the black swirls. Attach the stamped head over the ends of the acetate swirls. Add a computer-generated word to finish.
Shrink Plastic Bracelet
by Jennie Boxall
Stamp several of the swirls onto printable shrink plastic using blue StazOn Ink. Cut out carefully, punch holes, and shrink according to the instructions. Add jump rings and space the shrink plastic shapes around the bracelet, adding charms and beads in-between. You can add ribbon or more charms for extra decoration.
