That was the first line of the Chelsea football club song in the 70s (I think!) and “Blue” is Ann’s chosen theme/challenge at the Three Muses this week. I had a denim box weekend and as I wear a lot of blue, I
made altered 3 bangles in various ways, all incorporating blue, so they are my entry!
This is the heavy one – a sort of creamy plastic/ivory type bangle, which I coloured with Stream and a dab of Wild Plum alcohol inks. You could do much the same with permanent markers, or Sharpies too. On the subject of Sharpies, DD bought me a set of Sharpie highlighter pens a few weeks ago and they are really subtle in journalling!! 😉
The denim one was created by opening the seam cut from an old pair of jeans and wrapping a smaller metal bangle with it. I secured it in place with my hot glue gun! I must be improving, because I didn’t burn myself at all this time!
The one at the front is also a wrapped metal bangle, covered with patterned, ripped silk scrap fabric. It’s not finished yet as it was far trickier than the other two – it’s very slippery stuff and I want to stitch it in place, possibly adding beads aswell – we’ll see! I wear the other two quite a lot now and get some curious glances… 🙂
