I-top Intensive Day Four...

Thursday, January 6, 2011


The Gold Rush!
It's the final day of the Imaginisce i-top intensive and I thought I'd take you out with some glitz and glamour!


I raided the cupboard and found my trusty 24 carat gold and sterling silver sprays that I have stashed away for very special projects! And together with my Imaginisce products I created this little headband that would be perfect for special occasions where just the right touch of elegance is required.

Imaginisce have recently developed the most amazing array of accessories to work alongside the i-top and headbands are included in the list.
For my project I used the black headband and a large twist daddy to attach the flower to the band. Such a simple process as you just screw your accessory right onto the band and unscrew when you want to change the look with another creation.




I used one of the new Imaginisce Roly Rosies and the roller tool to create the flower before spraying it with a gentle coat of gold paint. The leaves I sprayed silver to contrast with the gold.
So, I hope you have enjoyed this weeks' i-top intensive and all the projects the design team have shared. You should be able to whip up a storm with your i-top now and if you don't have one, well I hope we've convinced you that it is definitely a tool worth having in your collection. Perhaps you might be lucky enough to win your very own i-top in todays blog hop give-away and again Imaginisce have been incredibly generous and thrown in some accessories just to get you started.

All you have to do is visit all three of the designers' blogs, leave a comment on each blog and then hop your way back to the Imaginisce blog to leave a final comment letting us know what you spied on today's hop. Every comment you leave puts you in the running to take home this wonderful prize pack and also puts you in the draw for the final secret Grand Prize to be announced on Friday with all the winners.

Todays blog hop order is as follows, so if you started at the beginning then you should be ready to head back to Imaginisce for your final comment. However, if you've jumped in on my blog first then not to worry, just make sure you visit each of the three blogs before finishing at Imaginisce. Good luck and happy hopping!

From farm to you...
