31  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Brooch - laminated collage on: September 24, 2012 06:51:28 AM


I created this "skellie" brooch from one of my original collages. I used a skull image from a 1901 Cezanne Painting. The crown and bow tie were cut on my Cricut machine. The flower was cut from a plant catalog. I love to collage so I have a big collection of paper images that I play around with until I create a design I like.

I call this "skellie" my "prom king". He has a black with white polka dot bow tie and some kind of flower attached to his orange crown. He is embellished with a red rhinestone.

I used a high quality print of my original collage for the brooch. It is heat laminated with heavy 7 ml lamination film.

You can create your own paper collage and laminate it to make a brooch. If you do not have your own laminator, you can take it to an office supply store like Office Max.

32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Edgar Allan Poe Mixed Media Assemblage on: August 31, 2012 12:50:13 PM


This Edgar Allan Poe Mixed Media Assemblage Piece was created from three wooden pieces that I painted black (block, spool, game piece). The Poe image and the word "Nevermore" are digital stamps from http://smearedink.com/. The wings are stamped with a rubber stamp from a Tim Holtz collection. The sculpture measures 7.25" by 4.5".

Once I had my bust, wings and crown collaged the way I liked them, I laminated the paper to increase durability and moisture resistance. I embellished the crown with black and red rhinestones and a piece of lace that I painted black. I also tied a piece of ribbon yarn around Poe's neck. I used double stick tape to adhere the laminated bust to the game piece.

The spool in the middle has a page torn from a worn and aged Poe paperback. It is decoupaged to the spool with Mod Podge and then varnished. I wrapped some funky black eyelash yarn around that to give the piece some texture.

The base block has book covers and illustrations from Poe's work. They have been decoupaged on and then varnished. The word "Nevermore" was also decoupaged and then varnished onto a block. I used some purple chalk on the added EAP quote and the word "Nevermore".

You could use this same concept and create your own mixed media assemblage!
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Altered Game Piece Pendant Necklace on: August 27, 2012 05:52:37 AM


This Frida Kahlo pendant was created from an upcycled Toy Story Game piece. I used collage, mixed media and decoupage techniques to create the background. I used a digital stamp of Frida from Dilly Beans for my image. Once I had all my elements arranged and decoupaged down, I sealed my pendant with varnish. You can choose any image or design that you like for your pendant. You can embellish it a lot or a little. It's up to you!

There are so many things you can do with discarded children's toys and games. I am going to make some brooches and magnets with the rest of my memory cards.

34  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How to make a paper beaded bobby pin for your hair on: May 14, 2012 08:12:15 AM




Paper beads are easy and inexpensive to make. You can make an eco friendly paper bead by using old magazines, catalogs and junk mail. Place your hand rolled bead on an ordinary bobby pin and you have a fun and funky hair accessory.



Step One:
Cut a 8" x 2" rectangular strip from a colorful designed paper. The last 3/4" of the strip is what you will see on your finished bead. Roll the paper strip on a skewer to produce a tube bead. When you get 3/4" from the end of your strip, apply some glue. Finish rolling and press the edge down firmly. Let dry.



Step Two:
Apply a paper sealant to the bead. I brush on a coat of varnish. Let dry.



Step Three:
Place curved bar of the bobby pin into the bead. Place the glued edge seam facing down so it doesn't show. If the inside of your bead spirals out, tap it on a flat surface and it will slip back inside. Apply Glossy Accents (or dimensional glue of your choice) to seal each end of the paper tube. This will hold the bobby pin in place and keep your paper bead from unfurling. Once the Glossy Accents dries clear and is no longer sticky, your bobby pin is ready to wear in your hair.





I hope you will try this tutorial and make some one of a kind bobby pins for yourself. Once you start you won't be able to stop!

view from top of brooch

I made this Vincent van Gogh, "The Red Vineyard at Arles", brooch from a clip art catalog that was destined for the recycling bin. It also includes pages from a damaged book and a cereal box. It is very eco friendly!

I used a 1 5/8" circle punch to punch out my circles. I then sewed the paper circles down the center and folded them to make the brooch fan out. For detailed instructions with photos, please visit this post. http://wendylynnspaperwhims.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-to-make-3d-paper-brooch-paper.html.

This is a side view of the pendant:


This is the back of the rock pendant:


I made this rock pendant necklace for my Rock Paper Scissors Contest submission. I got so excited about the contest that I raced through and misread the contest rules. I thought the paper had to be glued to the rock, so, my rock is almost totally covered by paper. LOL!!!

This pendant is eco friendly. It has a coiled magazine paper bezel and the back is covered with a piece of paper from a water damaged hardcover book. The lovely blooming hat girl image decoupaged on the front of the pendant is from Artchix Studio.

Not to be forgotten, my trusty scissors were used to cut out my paper image and the words "paper rocks". I chose these words because in my world paper does rock! Give me some paper, scissors and glue and I can happily create for hours. With a little imagination, the possibilities are endless.

I hope you like the rock pendant I have created and experiment with making one yourself.
37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bobby Pins made with Paper Bead on: May 02, 2012 06:24:34 AM


I made these animal print paper bead bobby pins by using paper strips from old magazines and catalogs. You create a paper bead by rolling a 8" x 2" piece of colorful paper on a skewer or small straw. I varnished the bead to protect the surface. To finish your hair bobbie,  insert the curved part of the bobby pin inside the bead.

Voila! You have made a pretty, one of a kind,  paper bead hair accessory.

Do you like to wear your art? Making a paper brooch is inexpensive and fun!

I made this brooch out of a JoAnn's flyer, magazine pages, pages from a damaged novel, and a cereal box. The brooch is simple to make and uses materials most of us crafters have on hand. The pop up brooch is made from four designs that are arranged and sewn down the middle. You can find step by step instructions with photos on my blog. http://wendylynnspaperwhims.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-to-make-3d-paper-brooch-paper.html

Please let me know if you have any questions.
