"Craftophrenia"~ Dabbling in Everything!

This project has gotten out of control! I may just cause the paint chip makers to start charging for these things... Uh-Oh!
I made some into magnets, with a Native American theme, inspired by my recent move to Arizona, while one became a 2-sided hanging ornament, there is a large group of frames shown which have just been decorated on the edges, and can be used in different ways. Those are the ones with numbers behind them, for swapping!
I also have some finished magnets with beaded designs, that were test samples of fresh-water pearls, and other beads and stones. I had these sewn on Bridal weight silk satin, from years ago, and just couldn't take them apart when I cleaned out my beads last week! So.... They just had to be inchies. These were glued to leather, and the frames have a thick coat of clear nail polish.
 So, here they are.... Grin
I'll start with the Beaded Ones First, They are my favorites!!

Next are the SouthWest Designs, Mostly done on leather backgrounds:

This is a close-up, one is an ornament, they have photos from an Indian Tribal Magazine:

And, here is a batch of frames with decorated edges, in various styles. I haven't made them into finished pieces yet. They are numbered in case I offer them for a swap I'm in!

Here's a close-up of a few:

If you want to see the rest of the close-ups, I'm loading them into my member's gallery.
Thanks for looking! K

these are great,

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.
