SWISS CAKE ROLL EARRINGS!

Hi!

Yesterday I posted a mini tutorial of these swiss cake roll earrings on my instagram. Today I thought I would share some more pictures of them and add the material list as well.

The best part about these are that they look much harder to make then they actually are, haha! I will include the Instagram video below. Also hope you enjoy the succulents I added as background decor. So proud of myself for actually remembering I had succulents growing outside… after I had gone to the store and bought some. OH WELL, life 😀

LAVA CAKE RING!  

Hi guys!     Bilderesultat for lava emoji

Lets just skip right past the fact that I am horrible at blogging. I finally got some time off work and decided that I would pick blogging up again. I can’t make any promises for the future, but for right now I’d like to make a few posts and see how it goes. I am still working on the theme of this blog and trying to figure out how I’d like everything to look.

I love the fact that I can have a place online that’s just mine. A place where I can share my hobby with you guys and I have a bunch of ideas for new blogposts so!

Ever since I was a kid I’ve been obsessed with rings. I used to store them in this huge plastic bag that to this day still exists somewhere at my parents house. Cheap plastic rings with big plastic diamonds on. I feel like they are very representative for my childhood growing up in the 90’s, I will see if I can dig them up the next time I go home to show you guys.

It’s probably been in the cards for me all along that I would love jewelry making. I decided to try my hands at making a lava cake earlier this week. I have never done this before, but I hope you enjoy it! I will leave a link to every supply used down below, as well as my instagram video of it!

Crazy hectic! Hitting 200k on instagram and rambles about my life.

 

Hi everyone!

So sorry I’ve been absent for so long.

I really wanted to keep posting and being creative with this blog last fall, I just didn’t have the time or energy. I find it super hard to be creative when I am stressed out about work or life in general, as I am sure many of you do as well. I started a new job in October and have been focusing on putting all my energy in that part of my life. So I just decided to put everything else on hold for a while. After work I would just lay down on the sofa and watch tv series until I would go to bed, yiiikes! November and December are months where if you work normal indoor hours you just don’t see much daylight at all in Norway. This can be really depressing!

We’ve entered a new year  and things have been calming down a bit lately. I feel like I am back to where I used to be when it comes to being creative and creating new charms. I have so many ideas and plans on where I want to take my Instagram and this blog so lets hope I can fulfill every single one this year. I recently hit 200k followers on instagram which is absolutely crazy! I love that there’s so many people that like what I do and want to follow my page. I don’t even know how to describe it or put words on how much it means to me, other than saying THANK YOU!

Just thought I’d include a little collage of my three most recent charms. Last year I was struggling a lot trying to find out what “my style”  in the clay world would be. There’s a lot of really talented clay artists out there and I know that I am far from being one of them. That being said I’ve been making charms for over four years now and I do feel like I’ve improved a lot since I first started.

I get questions every day about opening up a shop online and the truth is that I’ve been holding off on doing this for a couple of reasons. One being I haven’t had time. The second is that I am really slow at making charms because I am a perfectionist. Hence the third reason being I am not confident enough to actually put my charms out there. Seeing a picture is one thing, but holding it in your hand I feel is a completely different thing.

I’ve finally come to a place where maybe my charms are something I could actually sell and feel proud of. So that is my main goal for 2018, to start selling my charms. I want to thank everyone that’s been so patient with me when they’ve asked me when I am going to be selling.

Heres to 2018 being kickass awesome for Lunascorner! *crosses fingers*

Favorite craft supplies for September

2. October 2017

septe.jpg

I’ve been wanting to share my monthly favorite craft supplies here for a while now! So I thought I would start with september.  This will include everything from glitter, to clay, tools etc. I use alot of different craft supplies for my charms, so sharing my curent favourites with you guys is something I’d really like to do. It’s already October and fall is really starting to set in Norway. The nature is changing colors and the leaves have started to fall. It is getting dark outside earlier and earlier also.

I personally enjoy all the beautiful colors, cuddling up on the couch with a blanket and new episodes of my favourite tv show. Fall and winter in Norway can be rough and it usually gets really cold, stormy and rainy. It’s that time of the year when I can stay inside and craft without feeling bad for not doing something more “important”.

I did a post about my favorite essentials earlier this summer, but that was more focused on my most used tools and some supplies. Since it’s early fall my curent favourites are of  more gold, orange, burgundy colored now. I thought it would be fun doing a post like this to have and look back at for next years september!

It’s no secret that I swear by the brand Fimo for my clay creations. My two favourite colors atm is Fimo soft in the color Merlot and Fimo effect in the color Marble. The Merlot is a dark vine color and suits fall perfect. I love this color for a lot of things for fall, clothes, pillows etc. So it’s no surprise that I would love it as a clay color aswell. The other color Marble is a white colored clay with white and black glitter added to it. I love mixing this with other colors or just using it by itself.

You can buy Fimo Merlot and Marble from Craftcellar

Lazer Glitter from Solar Color Dust in the color Teddy Bear. This glitter is just unbeliveable, the sparkle and overall look of it is gorgeous. I love using this with my clay creations as a cupcake base for example.

This picture from their website shows the hologpragic effect alot better. 

You can buy it from SolarColorDust

blackmicro.jpg

Black glass micro beads from Miniaturesweethk. These have been my favourite to use for my drinks for a long time honestly. They are so great to mix with Fimo for a more unique look. They fit so prefectly with my Kiwi fruit drinks. As the black beads resembles the seeds from the kiwi fruit. See my post just below as a good example!

You can buy it from Miniaturesweethk (affiliate link)

hexagon.jpg

Hexagon glitters in the color gold and rosegold! These kinds of glitter flakes are really in the wind atm and I can totally see why. I love adding them as just little details on my charms. The gold and rosegold ones are definitely the most precious glitter I have in my drawers right now!

I usually buy my hexagon glitter from Miniaturesweethk

If you haven’t tried adding powered pigments to your clay creations yet you are missing out! These two are from Pearl Ex in the colors Sparkle Gold and Copper, I usually add them to the Fimo color Mother of Pearl for my open bezel charms. The shimmer is really strong and they blend well together. I have 7 different colors of these so far and I definitely want every single one that exists. I know whats on my wishlist for christmas this year!

You can buy the set that I have from Amazon (affiliate link)

 

How I make icecubes for my charms!

28. September 2017

Hi guys!

Today I thought I’d finally share with you how I make icecubes for my charms. This is probably one of the most asked questions on my instagram!

I use Fimo Liquid Gel and the bottle looks like this:

IMG_9726

First step is to pour some on to a baking sheet. This depends on how much you want to make. I usually make up quite alot when I first make these, just so I don’t have to do this every single time. You don’t need to use any tools to spread the liquid out on the sheet, just let it run out by itself.

IMG_9739

Next step is to bake it. I usually set the oven to 100 degrees celcius and bake it for around 15 minutes. This is what works for me, but every oven is a bit different so you just have to try and fail a bit at this step.

While it is still warm chop it up into square like pieces or whatever shape you want your icecubes to be. Doing this while it is still warm is alot easier then waiting until it is cooled down.

And the icecubes are ready to be used on a charm! I usually store them in a little box like the one below. I use Fimo liquid to seal them on to the charm also, this is okay and won’t ruin the shape of the already prebaked icecubes!

I put together a little video showing how to make a simple kiwi fruit drink with the icecubes. Heres a quick supply list if you were wondering where I bought the different things I use in this video:

Hope you found this mini tutorial helpful!

Water melon themed cactus bear!

Saturday 2. Sept 2017

Hi guys!

First of all, sorry I haven’t posted for a couple of weeks! My boyfriend and I got a puppy and it’s been little time to actually sit down and write a post, haha! But I definitely want to get back to posting regularly.

I posted a video of  a Water Melon Bear charm friday night on my instagram and thought I’d share a list of materials I used, since alot of you have been asking! What I like about working with polymer clay and creating charms is that you can create whatever you like and let your imagination run wild. What you make doesn’t need to make sense at all. Like this charm for example, it’s a water melon themed bear cactus holding a water melon pieced heart. It has a little star attached to it that is also water melon themed.
