Tree of Life Polymer Clay Pendant

Hi guys. Here is a quick tut video on polymer clay Tree of Life Pendants. It is very simple and quick. I also show you how to use eye shadow instead of mica powders such as Pearlex to color your polymer clay.

Many people go out and buy Pearlex or other products similar to that. They are GREAT products. I do like them tremendously. Not only are they great for coloring polymer clay but they are great in resin jewelry, scrapbooking and card making. However, they are very expensive. When I am out of the mica powders and can't afford them, I buy a cheap set of eye shadows in metallic colors. It works the same way on the polymer clay as the Pearlex and other mica powders do.

For those who love jewelry and polymer clay, you can also check out my other YouTube channel, Sweet Dreams Charms. All the DIY Tuts from Sweet Dreams Charms will be available here on the My Random life blog.

Tie Die/Watercolor Backgrounds for Cards

Hi my random friends! I just wanted to share a neat little technique you can use to create a watercolor background effect for cards. All you need is some washable markers, a spray bottle of water, and a stamp block. All the details are in the video below.

It is really simple and easy and makes very interesting patterns on your card. Also, the great thing is, no card is exactly the same.

I hope you enjoy the video below and come back to check for more videos soon. Have a great and random day.

As you all know, I love product testing. I just joined Smiley 360 and must admit I like what I'm seeing. After a few missions, I will update you guys on my opinion of the site. Right now, go check it out yourself and see what you think.

I personally love the layout myself. It's eye catching and easy to use. Sharing with other social media sites are really easy as well. Like I said, run on over there and check it out. The link is above. :D
