A Compendium of Curiosities wk#2

Hay lovely peeps, Hope your all having a good week so far, it's almost the weekend.
Today i'm sharing my offering for this weeks Compendium of Curiosities II challenge, just in the nick of time as there will be a new challenge tomorrow.
Here is my offering.
These were my bits before alteration 
This week it was Technique 2: Faux Patina
A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.  2, page 58
I had a lot of fun with this, and what started out as just a necklace became a sort of art doll .
I also had a little play and caught up with last weeks
Techinique 1: Custom Foam Stamps
A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2, page 66
As you can see it was just a bit of fun, I didn't have any pics of me as a pirate funny enough so I did a makeshift job with 'one eyes willy' instead.
Thanks for hopping by, i'll be back tomorrow with a pan pastel piece.

Stay Inky
♥ HUGZ ♥
