Christmas Ornaments

Couple of Christmas ornaments that I did.  First attempt at making ornaments and I'm really excited with how they turned out.  Both were painted with acrylics then embossed with UTEE and some glitter was added to make it a little more festive.  The trunk on the Xmas tree is Flower Soft (I think there might be another name for it).  Hope my partner likes them as much as I do.

TP Rolls

I made these for a swap I was in, the theme was red, black, cream and tan.  I'm extremely happy with the way they turned out.  Especially considering I had never done them before.

Some of my favorite journal pages.


Some more charms that I have made for previous swaps.

This is the second set of charms I made.  I embossed some Vintaj pieces with a Tim Holtz folder, alcohol inked them, the sanded them down for depth.

Steampunk Charms

Here's some pics of some Steampunk Charms that I needed to make for a swap I'm in on a yahoo group.  This is the first set of 8 that I needed to make.  They are washers that I picked up from a hardware store.  On the front I used alcohol inks to give it some spunk, then I put some tiny clock pieces on with glossy accents.   On the backside I glued paper then used glossy accents to seal it in.  I needed some way to add a clasp so I decided to run some wire in and around, I think it gives it the final touch.  Hope the players are as happy with them as I am.
