1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pink Carnation Pixie Brooch - Altered Poker Chip 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.

I did not prime the chip for this pendant. I directly pounced on ink. The paint in the center under the design is gesso. You do have to add a sealant (I used varnish) to set the inks.

This pendant is created from an altered poker chip. I picked up a bag of mixed poker chips at the thrift store and could not wait to alter them. The chip is colored with alcohol inks, gesso and water color crayons. The pixie design is from Artchix (hats in bloom collage sheet). The design is attached with mod podge. The finished piece is sealed to protect the image and set the ink. The pendant is embellished with ink dyed flowers and a mini green gem.

Thank you for your kind comments. I hope you will give assemblage a try. If you do not have a laminating machine, cold lamination sheets work just as well. The "dairy queen" sounds like a fantastic idea...

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.

The bail is a photo turn from the scrapbook department in the craft store.

The necklace is not heavy to wear.

This Peacock Feathers Woman design is decoupaged onto a 1 7/8 x 7/8" ceramic tile from the home improvement store. It is sealed with varnish for a smooth water-resistant surface. The design is from the Arty Jewels Gecko Galz domino collection. The pendant is embellished with three mini blue gems. The backside has coordinating scrapbook paper.

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.
10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Edgar Allan Poe Banner 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.
