Decoupage anything that you can think of with them.  I covered a red lampshade with old stamps and when it was switched on it had a nice warm glow to it.  I've also covered old boxes, and I used them in collages and other arts and crafts.

These are beautiful pieces - they look gorgeous all together on the wall like that.  It is almost like a narrative for the eyes.  The unfinished 'look' of some of the peices makes me think of things left unsaid. 

It looks as though you have used watered down acrylics on the canvas, is that right?  I love the soft effect anyway. 

I can't believe this is highschool work - It is so good!

I love the colours!  It's a beautiful portrait.

Oh, what inspiration!  I love all of the vintage 'stuff' - it looks wonderful and really retro funky.  I think it would be a fun place to spend time - there looks like there is heaps to entertain oneself with in your home...I think I'd play dressups with all the jeweks, aprons and bags!

I assume you hit the op shops a lot then?  Isn't it fun scouting around for vintage pieces?

Argh, this is really adorable.  I love the funky twist on what is traditioanlly a 'nanna' craft.  I adore 'nanna' crafts by the way  Wink.  It makes me wanna go out and buy a teapot (I use teabags) and stitch myself up a cosy of my own.

Lovely.

That is so adorable.  And so creative - I would never dream of wacking a box on top of a candlestick and wrapping it all in clay - what ingenuity.  It has a fairytale/nursery rhyme feel to it - all bold and beautiful and whimsical.  It makes me feel kinda dreamy.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone!  I think you a right merwing, imperfection does indeed give character.  Cheesy

It looks like they should be running through a field holding hands or something. Heck, I want to run through a feild holding their hands!

Ha, how cute!  That's exactly the look I was going for.  Grin
18  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: AUSSIE ONLY SWAP on: March 17, 2005 03:22:38 AM
I'd be in too!  I'm not sure I qualify yet either, but I should by the time it comes around. I'll watch this space!
19  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Altoids / Mint tins on: March 17, 2005 03:12:36 AM
Pocket shrines are a really popular way of using up old altoid tins.  I've made a couple but altoids are really expensive here and only found in delicatessans, or specialty candy shops. They are lots of fun to make though and can be based on any theme.  They're a cute gift for a good friend too:

There are a couple on the bottom of this page: http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/bg2.html

A couple here also: http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/dia.html

Fabulous idea.  I like how you've gone with a monster fairy, instead of your traditional type!
