Altered standing mirror

Hi everyone,

While I was out shopping last weekend for Christmas presents I came across this plastic mirror for $5, what a bargain! I just had to buy it and take it home to alter . I didn't get much Christmas shopping done unfortunately as my mind was obviously elsewhere he he.

I coated the tacky silver colour with Alcohol Inks, added flowers that I bought at the Penrith Papercraft show and some of my secret stash of vintage blooms, a Crafty Secrets collage picture and ZVA rhinestone leaves. The little metal charm is Pink Paislee.







I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, any suggestions? Maybe I can give it away as a Christmas present LOL. I can't display it in my vintage lounge room anymore as it now houses a giant TV, oh well.

Thank for looking
Cheers
Jane

More Scrapware pieces - Chipboard

Here are some of the Scrapware chipboard pieces I did for display at the Penrith Papercraft Festival that was held at the beginning of the month.







The Canvas of my beautiful daugther 'Eliza' was embossed with American Craft 'Zing' embossing powders, all the chipboard pieces were embossed actually, the dragonfly's body and the background circle piece were stamped with a text image while the embossing powder was still hot, I used a VersaMark ink to help release the stamp after stamping it.

I coloured all the chipboard pieces on the owl card with my Copic markers, they will soak up your markers so don't do this too often, unless you have re-inkers of course he he.

Hope you like them all and thanks for looking.

Thank you once again Angela for asking me.

Cheers Jane

Scrapware Jewellery pieces

Hi everyone,

I was very honour to have Angela from Scrapware ask me to play with some of her products and her NEW acrylic pieces.







I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze on the back of the pieces, I covered the whole surface with a mix of three glazes, heated it with my heatgun until it bubbled and turned black just about, when I turned it over I was amazed to discover the stunning effect and colours that was produced, just gorgeous!

The first one, I left untouched so it looks translucent, the second and third ones I painted over the dried glaze with a silver Krylon pen, I also went around the edges. The fourth, I glued a piece of Webster's Pages paper on one side using Glossy Accents then added ZVA pearls around the edges.

I had so much fun making these and the acrylic pieces withstand the heat brilliantly! I have made many more since and given them away. I hope I explained it well, any questions just ask me :-)

Thanks for looking
Cheers
Jane
