I have been experimenting with some new
From left to right:
Made the bezel myself & added a lovely cast angel
along with some mica powders to give it some colour.
Second is a tin type photo covered with dimensional
magic, a brass 'thingie' & a chandelier piece with the word 'ART' behind it.
Third is my interpretation of one of Stephanie Lees
creation from her book, a 'Bundled Silk Pin'.
Fourth is my own featuring a 2 birds and nest on a branch with a few extras on the chain.
Last is a bezel I made myself with some French paper, an Eiffel Tower & a few little silver roses.
What do you think??

Last week, Bevlea, Glenda, Caro(no blog) & I got together at Caros to make an etched metal book.
Bevlea had stamped the metal with the Tim Holtz Book stamp & then we etched. Amazing this time with no spills!!
We then made plaster pages for the book, making a lot of mess along the way.
Last week Bevlea & I got together to assemble ours, but, immediately ran into trouble with the plaster pages, so ditched them, and decided to use art paper instead, using coptic stitching.
Then we added some bits & bobs to the side & 'VOILA' a new book!
I am thrilled with the result, though, I may have gone a tad overboard with the decorations!!!!
May use the book as a small journal to record our exploits,  when Bevlea & I head off for another long arty weekend at Queenscliff!!

A month or so ago, Bevlea & I ventured up to the lovely town of Wagga Wagga
 to see our dear friend Barb.
We had a wonderful time, albeit brief,
did lots of talking, some shopping, more talking, eating,
more talking, drinking, more talking & some art.
We all worked on making a canvas each & we all
 contributed to one for Glenda, who couldn't make the trip.
The time in Wagga Wagga was too short, hoping
next time we can stay longer.
Here is my result, let me know what you think.

A few weeks ago Bevlea & I got together to make a necklace.

We had purchased the gorgeous bezel from Jen Crossleys Website.
We cut paper to fill it, of course, mine is Paris themed, Bevleas was themed The Royal Progress!

 We were going to fill it with Ice Resin, but, that plan fell through,
so we used Dimensional Magic & some Crackle.
We fiddled & fluffed around, adding chandelier crystals, the lovely sinker
is also from Jens shop & the little chairs that I had bought.
I call them "The Queens Thrones"!!
This is in honour of The Queen of Arts Retreat in 2012.
I am really proud of this necklace, it has hardly left my neck !!
