I have had such an incredibly fun week with my sis here. And actually getting a few things done! This is a pair of jeans that I started while I was in the Ozarks visiting Linda Peterson. I wanted a pair of bleached jeans and they just did not bleach. Linda, it was the bleach pen! I bought a new one...worked perfect!
Not your ordinary bleached out jeans. I stamped loads of Autumn Leaves and Fancy Pants swirl stamps down the entire side of the jeans.
Then I painted each stamp with the bleach pen. Let that set for 2 hours. Washed and dried them.
Then I went up the center of each bleach line with a Ranger Adirondack pen...it's permanent. And covered that with a layer of turquoise stickles.
And then, I added 100 (yep, that ONE HUNDRED!!) crystal rhinestones. These are the heat set type...and not very expensive at all. Only $6.75 for 100 of them.
So, I know the stickles will wash out...but that's sort of the plan. I can re-do it with a different color and everyone will think I have a new pair of jeans! I hunted high and low for a pair that I didn't care if I ruined or not...finally settled on some that are 2 sizes too small. Hmmm...I think this just might be diet motivation....I MUST wear these by summer!
What have you stickled lately?
