This mini was made for my daughter for her birthday. It was lots of fun making and adding all the embellishments to it. She drew a couple of pictures in it and added it to one of the pages. This was made with DCWV Sweet Stack paper. It is really cute with all the glittery pages in it. I added a chunky chain on the spine. Take a look at the video for more information about this adorable mini.

I thought for sure that when I painted the petal, the paper would fall apart! It held up pretty well actually.The key to making these fabulous flowers is to lightly brush the paint on the petals. They will keep there shape, do not forget to brush lightly!

This is the original Bat my son brought home from school. The first thing I said, “Can I decorate it”. He said, “sure mom”. “Hehehehe, giggle! It was really cute! So last night I turned this bat into something that looked more
The bat is of a plastic material. The bat was painted black and underneath the chipping black paint, was pink plastic. Yeah, that’s right, a pink plastic bat!!
First, I scraped all the chipping paint off and roughed up the surface so the paint would stick and not chip again. I painted body with black acrylic paint. I then painted the mouth and eyes white for a base color. Next, I painted the tongue a light pink color and added some red metallic paint to accent the tongue and teeth with blood. Then I added some Silver Leaf/ Rub-n-Buff to accent the body, wings and head. I then paint the eyes and added some glossy accents. The last step was to cover the bat with Mod Podge.
This is how it turned out!
This was a very fun project and my son loved it!!!
Silver leaf, rub-n-buff
