1  Pink Carnation Pixie Brooch - Altered Poker Chip in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Wendylynns Paper Whims on: May 09, 2014 06:06:00 AM


This altered poker chip brooch was made from a poker chip I picked up at the thrift store. I used mod podge to attach a paper punched circle from a damaged book into the inverted center of the chip. I then sponged on two coats of gesso to prepare a base. I further altered the color with pink acrylic paint and oil pastels. The flower pixie is from Artchix (hats in bloom) collage sheet. Varnish was applied as a sealant. Three mini red pompoms are attached to give the brooch some kitsch appeal and dimension. The pin back is attached with glossy accents.

3  Mixed Media Assemblage - Dancing Queen in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Wendylynns Paper Whims on: March 08, 2014 07:55:45 AM

Cut out design and laminate for stability. Prepare an assemblage piece to use as your base. I used a building block (Jenga Game size) and a children's alphabet block. Glue these together with a strong adhesive (I used glossy accents). Attach the laminated image to the block with double stick tape. Embellish as you like. This assemblage is embellished with tulle, tiny red gems, an embroidery flower and a vintage looking charm.

5  Steampunk Altered Wooden Domino Pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Wendylynns Paper Whims on: February 14, 2014 08:02:23 AM


A wooden domino that I picked up at a garage sale was used to create this pendant. Attach a bail to your domino. A heart charm attached with glossy accents was used on this project.

Choose a design for your pendant. I used a design from Gecko Galz Arty jewel-it sheet. Trim it to fit your chosen domino and then apply some type of sealant (varnish). I use a cosmetic wedge sponge (making sure to seal the edges).

Use tacky glue or mod podge to apply the design to the tile. This pendant was embellished with some brass studs.

6  Edgar Allan Poe Banner in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Wendylynns Paper Whims on: November 25, 2013 07:11:34 AM

I used digital stamps and digital collages from Gecko Galz to create this banner. The digital stamps are from the Midnight Hour Collection. The collage designs are from the Poe collection. The word "Nevermore" is from the Smeared Ink Quoth the Raven digital set. There is also a little rubber stamp detail on each banner. The banners are embellished with a variety of embellishments. For a closer look at each banner, see my blogger for individual photos.

7  Glass Tile Pendant Necklace - Grunge Lace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Wendylynns Paper Whims on: November 24, 2013 01:53:56 PM

This flowered pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile is embellished with a scrap of lace flowers that I have been painted dark gray. The lace gives the pendant a raised texture. The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A shiny silver colored metal nut is attached as a bail. I used glossy accents as my glue. First attaching the nut and letting the glue dry overnight. The next day I added more glossy accents around the base of the nut to reinforce the hold.

You could use this technique for any little bits of lace or embroidery that you have. Imagine the possibilities!
