I hope you don't mind, but I'd love to join in - you've inspired me to get creative! I usually hate using new books, with blank pages, but somehow recycling an old book into inspirational art is therapeutic!

Here are some pages I have done already...

Purple & Green:




Merlin (inspired by the myths challenge... I need something to go with this though for the other page)


With the flames page, I had the idea to do a double spread for the 4 elements - earth, water, fire and air, so that is what I'm working on now...

22  University Pages... Criminology in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by mpemporium on: June 09, 2009 03:01:00 PM
I have finally finished my next pages... this time representing the Criminology side of my course. These pages are more open to interpretation, as befits the style of teaching. The text that I have used here is a copy of the texts I used in my studies, and all have significance to me. These pages also have a lot of texture (although you may not be able to see that from the photos).

23  Bracelet display cones in Completed Projects by mpemporium on: June 01, 2009 11:06:28 PM
I am taking part in my first summer fayre, and selling my jewellery. I already have a stand for necklaces, but I didn't have anything to display my bracelets on... until now! I had seen some card cones that a lady had been displaying her jewellery on and liked the idea (I didn't want to use a T-bar), but as my stall will be outside, I wanted something that would not blow away. So I decided to make fabric cones and fill them with rice.

Please excuse the mess!

24  University Pages...Forensic Science in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by mpemporium on: May 20, 2009 04:25:53 PM
I'm still new at this, but I decided to do a scrapbook about my life at university (while I can still remember what happened!). So far I have only done the title page, one half of the front page and the 'Forensic Science' page. (I took Forensic Science as one of my subjects...).

This layout came to me while bored at work, and I couldn't wait to get home to make it a reality.

The 'body' is artwork from the internet. I made up the 'crime scene tape' on my graphics program. The Smartwater icon is an official logo of Smartwater. The flames I did freehand onto red card and then painted with black paint. The lip-print (and the items in the evidence folder) are all samples collected while at university. The eyelet in the 'body' is meant to represent a bullet wound, and the chemical diagram is of Methamphetamine.

I'm really happy with how this turned out! ^_^

This afternoon, I received from classifiedomega17. Thank you so much for sending such an awesome package- I was laughing with delight when I opened it! I think I went a bit mad with taking photos, so be warned!

This was written on the parcel:

A group photo of the items:

A letter from classifiedomega17, on handmade stationery. She made the envelope and the stamp, which she included in the package.

My very own Professor Snape to hug! I love potter puppet pals, and now I have my own! Cheesy

This shirt I will be wearing a lot!

An awesome apron to wear when making potions. I love the detail- it is in slytherin house colours and even the back is decorated. I also love aprons with pockets.

Some handmade stationery from the desk of Severus Snape. Each envelope has headed paper in it, and the cauldron stamp on too.

...and the stamp:

A pair of cauldron earrings and a slytherin pride necklace

Thank you so much classifiedomega17 for being such a great swap partner!

26  New sets of earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mpemporium on: June 26, 2008 02:46:09 AM
I had fun making lots of pairs of earrings over the past week, using a new set of pliers I got at the weekend.

The first ones were made using shell beads:

After that, I decided I wanted to make something a little more colourful:

These I made for my friends' birthdays:

Thank you for looking Cheesy

27  Muscle shell earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mpemporium on: June 23, 2008 03:38:42 AM
I went to a local (massive) craft shop at the weekend, and decided to get some supplies. I then couldn't resist crafting, so here are some of my newest creations:

28  Potions Bottles in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by mpemporium on: March 01, 2008 11:39:22 AM
I am (slightly) obsessed with Harry Potter, especially with Severus Snape, so I had lots of fun engraving these bottles. I wanted to put a scroll-type shape around the text, but it looked a little strange, so I left it out.

29  Beaded Lizards in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by mpemporium on: February 29, 2008 10:30:26 AM
I made these ages ago, and I hope they're in the right topic!

They are made from seed beads threaded on thin wire. I think they are really cute!

I'm thinking of making loads of them to swap for the international Girl Guide camp that is coming up in August. I hope people will like them
