11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Floral Doodle Rubber Stamped Pendant on: October 19, 2013 06:05:54 PM

This retro inspired orange and pink pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. I adhered a piece of white fabric to the front of the tile with glossy accents. The fabric was painted with watered down orange and pink acrylic paints. I rubber stamped the floral doodles (Hampton Art) with permanent ink. The piece is sealed with water based varnish. A pink howlite skull bead is attached with a scrap of black chain.

The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A black painted 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.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Glove Altered Glass Tile on: October 09, 2013 07:48:41 AM


This vintage and steampunk inspired pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile was painted with red, pink and orange acrylic paints. The antique key image is rubber stamped onto the pendant with permanent ink. I sealed the piece with water based varnish. I attached a plastic vintage glove with glossy accents as my glue. I painted a hardware nut black and glued it on as a bail.
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Grungy Lace Altered Glass Tile Pendant on: September 25, 2013 01:06:32 PM


This grungy lace pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile has been altered with acrylic paint and a scrap of lace. The tile was painted off white and the scrap of lace was painted grey/gray. I attached the lace to the pendant with Glossy Accents. Once the GA was dry, I drybrushed the red accents onto the tile. The tile was then sealed with water based varnish.

The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches and has a well weathered silver colored metal nut attached as a bail. I used Ranger Glossy Accents for my glue. I attached the nut and let it dry overnight. Then I used the GA all around the base of the nut again to really reinforce the bond.

The pendant is strung on 20 inches of chain with a barrel clasp. To use up some of my smaller pieces of chain, I joined the pieces with an enameled square. The pendant has a tattered and rustic vibe to it. I hope you will make one for yourself.




14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered Glass Tile Pendant Necklace - Funky Foliage on: September 21, 2013 08:18:43 AM


This unique pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The pendant is embellished with a raised foliage pattern. The funky fern is die cut from fun foam. Really...who knew? I painted the front and back of the tile with orange acrylic paint. I painted the fern brown and attached it to the tile with Glossy Accents. I then did some color washes and dry brushing to achieve the distressed and weathered final look. The piece is sealed with water based varnish.

The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches. A rusty silver colored metal nut rescued from my husband's hardware discards is attached as a bail. I used Glossy Accents to glue the nut on and let it dry overnight. Then I used the Glossy Accents all around the base of the nut again to really reinforce the bond.

The pendant is tied on a 24" steel colored ball chain with a scrap of off white leather. The necklace has an organic earthy vibe.
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Altered Glass Tile Pendant Necklace - Ink Dyed Steampunk on: September 20, 2013 11:01:52 AM


This ink dyed pendant is made from an altered glass tile from the home improvement store. The tile was dyed with Ranger alcohol inks in various colors. I used my finger to spread on a base color and then I dripped the other colors on top and let them spread and mix until I got this colorful pattern.  I added two steampunk gears and cogs to give it a steampunk vibe. The tile measures 1 7/8 x 1/2 inches and has a silver colored metal nut attached as a bail. I used glossy accents as my glue. The pendant is strung on a 24" steel colored ball chain.
16  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.
17  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.
18  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!
19  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
