Recently my Mom and I got new phones and the look exactly alike!!! They are both blue, both smart phones, and neither one of them has a place for cell phone charms so there was no way to tell them apart....until we got them home ^_~
After popping in a good t.v. series, I pulled out my Deco box and got to work!
As you can see from my collection, I don't have whipped cream pieces or lots of roses, but I do have some favored cabochons I've been hording and I figured no was the best time to use them.
I usually use a Japanese silicone based glue, but I ran out of it last Christmas and haven't gotten any more, so this is the first time I am using an American 'All Purpose' for my Deco project.
Allen's Original Tacky Glue...It takes a while to dry, but it's doing well so far.
First, I started by positioning and laying out where I wanted the bigger pieces to go, they are the focal point of the design, so it's imperative that you know where you want them before you glue them, because once they are glued, you don't get a second chance.
I then placed the larger pearls and rhinestones about to give the design a more varied look.
Awkward looking so far, isn't it?
Then came the tons and tons of tiny multi-colored flat back pearls to fill in the body of the phone.
It was lots of work and took three hours to finish, but I am so proud of the end result that I can't wait to get more pearls and work on my DS!
