Here's what it looks like all finished:
I used the graphic below from the Graphics Fairy you can find here
Here's what you'll need:
a copy of a graphic, old pair of eyeglasses
First, cut out the picture and pop the glass out of the eyeglasses
Once fully covered with Mod Podge, place picture face down so that it will show through on the other side (convex side). Press graphic down gently to get rid of any bubbles.
Once dry (about half an hour), use small scissors to trim the paper around the glass
Paint the back of your pendant with acrylic paint, I chose a pink color
Next, paint your wooden bead with the acrylic paint to match your pendant, I painted mine pink. Let dry a few minutes.
For my Pink Saturday challenge, I'd like to mention a lady who is spectacular. She crafts and blogs and has a passion for making very special things for other people, Denise Marie of Bloomin. Go visit her and see for yourself how wonderful she is.
