Then it's a good thing we don't live in Canada! 

Okay, so, my mom's dad was in the Navy for a million years, and he's traveled the world.  Every time he'd go to a new country he'd bring her back a coin.  I happened upon this freaking amazing coin collection and bugged her until she gave me a few.  She refused to give me the really cool ones though, but oh well.  Here's what I made last night!!

[[pardon my poor excuse for good photography]]


This was me trying to be cool and take a neat picture.  It didn't exactly go over well.


This one is truer to color.  And no, it really doesn't hang that crooked. Smiley

The background is made of random stamps and black nail polish, if you were wondering.
More to come soon! Smiley Smiley 

Thanks for looking!  Opinions are greatly appreciated!

NEW STUFF!   whoo-hoo

This one is another Canadian coin...with a boat!


This one is 20 pence from France.  Oh, how I'd love to go there.

I just love peacock feathers!

I made this one for a girl I work with who loves seahorses.  The coin is from Singapore!

 
Here's a shot of the back, just because it makes me happy.  I freaking love dominoes.


That's pretty much it.  I'm all out of cool little things to glue on to other random things.  Anywho, enjoy the rest of your day...I sure won't; it's off to work I go!  Yippee Skippy!

Nice work! I like how every thing is arrange and deviant art is always appreciated by me.  I was wondering what type of glue that was use in the piece?
