Suzanne's Journal and Necklace

Suzanne Ivester, the artist known as The Polymer Chef (perhaps you've read her column in PolymerCafe magazine?) has created two fun projects for you to enjoy this month.

This journal was create with the Snails in the Garden silkscreen, Fancy Border Cutters, and Mini Bling mold. www.createalong.com Look at what you can create with a few simple tools and an old boring notepad!




Then she went on to create a pretty Mokume Gane style necklace. She used the Circles press stamp and snowflakes mold to make this.



Suzanne will be posting more instructions about the techniques she used on her blog, The Polymer Chef.
