A few of my favourite things

Hay no sound of music singing!!!

I thought that as i started this blog to showcase some of my favourite pieces i best add some lol
The following are projects i have completed in the past year or so.

This is the very first domino i altered, i used Alcohol inks as a base, then stamped an image using stazon and to finish coated in glossy accents, threaded some cord through the holes i had made to create a necklace, with a little added charm to disguise the fact that i drilled the hole wonky lol

This was made after seeing the idea in one of Tim Holtz's distressables books, i used Blank frame charms, filled them with not only photo's but also wording spread across to read Family.
This was made as a gift for my OH's Mum.

This was 1 of 3 paper mache cases i altered.

It started out plain and i used distress inks, stamping and glossy accents, as well as a few embelishments to turn it into an oriental style keepsake case.
Inside i made a little space to put little photo's and such.

I am so pleased how this turned out, so much so that i nearly kept it it was a christmas gift for my friend)
