21  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / French Inspired Brooch on: August 14, 2013 02:19:27 PM
I created this brooch with an altered Memory Game piece. I covered both sides of the card with design papers. I then rubber stamped on the french design with a stamp from Hampton Art. The girl is from an unknown collage sheet (she was at the bottom of my scraps collection). I used watercolor crayons and oil pastels around the edges of the brooch. To protect the image and paper, I put a layer of clear contact paper over the top of the brooch. The brooch is embellished with a turquoise gem.

Thank you for your kind compliments. I hope you will give this easy technique a try!
23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mermaid Alterted Clothespins on: July 24, 2013 08:49:33 AM


I used three Dilly Bean digital stamps for these deliciously cute mermaid designs. I colored the images with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits. The images are laminated for stability and water resistance. I have a heat laminator but lamination sheets would work just as well. Add glitter before laminating.  The mermaids are attached to clothespins that I painted blue and then distressed with sand paper.
24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered Memory Game Piece Pendant on: July 13, 2013 08:01:05 AM


I used Dilly Bean stamp #340 Frida's sugar skull for this pendant. I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits. I then scanned my colored image and saved it on the computer. I removed the background in PSE and pasted it onto a digital paper from Create with TLC. After I printed out the image, I covered it with contact paper (packing tape works also). I then glued it to my repurposed memory game piece with Mod Podge. After attaching the image, let it dry and then cut off the excess. I held it up to a light to center the design on the chipboard. I did the same with the backside. The edges are inked with a gold sharpie. Use a small hole punch for two holes and then add your jewelry hardware. Easy Peasy!
25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Domino Art Doll Assemblage on: June 02, 2013 05:21:13 PM

This Domino Doll assemblage was created with the following materials: one 1.5 inch wooden block, one children's building block, four red dice, two antique wooden dominoes and a wooden ice cream spoon. The dolls face is a rubber stamp from Limited Edition called "young girl". The base block is rubber stamped with the words "Dreams really do come true" by Inkadinkadoo. I also used an Inkadinkado collage stamp on the other three sides of the base block. The doll is embellished with four rhinestones, eyelash yarn, butterfly wings from Dover and a paper punched crown. These have been laminated for durability.

The assemblage is 7 inches tall and wing span is 3.25 inches wide

This assemblage doll was made with various supplies. The doll's body was created with a large wooden spool, a stacking tower game piece, an antique wooden domino and a red poker game token. The assemblage is embellished with four metal washers, three black and three red rhinestones, a metal crown, red eyelash yarn and striped design paper. The dolls body is a rubber stamp from A Stamp in the Hand called "ink bottle girl".
27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fairy Mixed Media Sculpture on: December 17, 2012 12:56:23 PM

To create this altered clothespin fairy, I painted a clothespin and wooden spool black and glued them together with dimensional paint. I then glued the spool to a black plastic poker chip (you could probably leave this step out or use a wooden circle).

I used images from Gecko Galz to piece together my fairy collage. I added some chalks to enhance the colors of the images. Once my collage was arranged and tacked down with a glue stick, I laminated the collage for durability. I then used strong double stick tape to adhere my collage to the front and the mini dressform to the back of my structure. The piece is embellished with sequins, seed beads,and a blue rhinestone. I wrapped some variegated eyelash yarn around the wooden spool base. She is so pretty.

You could easily create your own fairy using the above suggestions.
28  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Steampunk Pendant Necklace - Altered Game Piece on: December 16, 2012 04:43:48 PM


This Steampunk Woman pendant necklace is eco-friendly. I altered a card from a Memory Game I picked up at a garage sale over the summer to make this pendant. I covered the chipboard with scrapbook paper and then rubber stamped the cogs on with an Inkadinkado stamp and brown ink. The beautiful vintage steampunk woman is a collage image from Gecko Galz. I added some metallic gold paint to her collar and the hardware on her hat. Once I completed my collage, I covered the pendant with clear contact paper. The pendant is embellished with a golden metal flower with a gold pearl center.
29  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered Memory Game Pendant on: November 09, 2012 04:49:08 PM




I created this pendant with a "Bob the Builder" Memory Game piece. I picked up the game at a garage sale over the summer. I knew as soon as I opened the box that they would make excellent brooches, pendants and magnets. I always like to craft green when I can.

I used a variety of mixed media techniques to prepare the chipboard card. I then cut out my image from a collage sheet by http://www.moonlightjourney.com/. This one was a freebie but they have lots of sheets in their online store to choose from. I used mod podge to attach my image and then I covered the front and back with two coats of varnish to increase durability and water resistance.

The pendant is hung on 20" of copper toned chain with a spring ring clasp closure. A golden colored half pearl was added to her headband for some dimension. The woman has a very soulful expression.
30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wooden Spool Necklace on: November 08, 2012 05:28:41 PM


I made this spool necklace from three mini-wooden spools (3/4" long) and two smaller spools (1/2" long) that I painted brown and slightly distressed with sand paper. I glued abstract printed fabric onto the spools. I created a tassel with some sock yarn that had the appearance of embroidery floss. I covered my gathering knot with a small piece of the fabric. The spools are strung on 20" of copper-tone chain. Take the spools with you to the craft store to buy some chain that will fit through the holes in the spool. The necklace is a useful way to use up some of those fabric scraps you have laying around. Hmmmm, I'm thinking the smaller spools alone would make a cute bracelet.
