crayoncanvas asked: OH BY THE ANGEL, HOW DID YOU MAKE THESE?!?! I was just you know, scrolling through nd I saw the rune templates and Im like :DH How can I make these?
Hey there! Thanks for the question! I actually took the original runes and made templates, which I then reversed and printed on paper so that when I make the iron on transfers they are right-side-up. If you take a peek at my previous post, you’ll see the right-side-up templates that I made before I flipped them around.
The crystals are applied by hand, one teeny tiny crystal at a time. But I think the results are totally worth it. I’m so ready to iron these onto something.. just have to decide.. on what.. :P
I hope this answer makes sense!

These were inspired by my very recent trip back home to Taiwan ♥ We went to Jay Chou’s restaurant in Taipei and it was fabulous! I had been thinking about making a template for the logo for a while now, but never really got around to it. I’m pretty pumped about these!! ♥

Updating with a quick photo of the Avengers template I made a while ago. ♥ I finally ironed it onto a shirt! I picked a black Tek gear t-shirt to put it on.. it’s accented nicely with the details on the shirt itself and looks really nice! Now.. if they’d only announce an Avengers 2 movie? :D

Ultimate love!! ♥ Oh yes.. Jay Chou!
People can call me crazy, but since his debut over 10 years ago I have loved all of his talents.. you might know him most recently as Kato in The Green Hornet? ♥ Or perhaps in the slightly less known Curse of the Golden Flower? ♥ But he started his music career as a singer/ song writer, bringing his own unique style mix of R&B, pop, and traditional Chinese-flavored music to the center stage.
Now.. immortalized forever in crystal. :D HA!

Beautiful start to the weekend! ♥ Lots to get done today.. mostly cleaning the house so the new fridge can be delivered tomorrow, wishing I could spend the entire weekend working on crystal templates instead.
Thanks to a wonderful friend [Anita], I have been able to make a lot of really adorable and one of a kind iron on transfers now. She has kindly allowed me to use her drawings and make them into crystal creations. These really are cute!! ♥ The one featured here was drawn by her for another friend [Nancy], and I’ve got this all packaged up, ready to be sent as a surprise for her. It’s a little bulldog sitting on top of a wooly mammoth. So exciting! ♥
Oh! And a quick update from yesterday as I didn’t update this.. I woke up to find one of my Etsy listings added to a treasury!!! Wow, that felt so good!! ♥
A small peek at what I can do..
First set: Super comfortable red Sofft Olina pumps that I added Swarovski crystals to. Check out the heel!! ♥ These are available through my Etsy shop!
Second picture is an iron on transfer done with Swarovski hot fix crystals. ♥
Third picture is my current phone case. The double happiness symbol I made specifically for my upcoming wedding!!
