Miniature Charms

Dec 14, 2011

I’ve been hav­ing fun cre­at­ing these minia­ture charms in between work­ing on CHA projects and other design com­mit­ments. Yes, it’s that time of year again… CHA-W is just a lit­tle over a month away. I will be work­ing in the Maya Road booth again with some won­der­ful make n takes lined up and have two book sign­ings for my new book “Delight In The Sea­sons”.… I can­not wait for this book to debut. I’m so proud of it!

Ok on to the charms… the base mea­sure 3/4 inches square and are actu­ally vin­tage bingo pieces. I attached heavy white card­stock on the top of each bingo piece then using Cof­fee Archival Ink and sev­eral dif­fer­ent Anti­quated Col­lec­tion stamps I stamped parts of the images from the Per­fumery (crown), Pocket Watch and Robe Pat­tern (Fine and Dandy), Angel’s Face (Dr. Warner’s Corsets) and Brooch Scroll (Soci­ety Lady). Next, I used Copic Mark­ers and Dia­mond Stick­les to accent the Crown, Pocket Watch and Angel charms. I then applied glossy accents on top of the Angel and Pocket Watch and Sepia Glossy Accents on top of the Brooch Scroll, Robe Pat­tern and Crown charms. Each one was then set aside to dry thor­oughly overnight. Now, all I need to do is place a piece of vin­tage ledge paper or sheet music on the back and attach a bail using a strong liq­uid adhesive.

I also have a Year-End Work­shop Clear­ance going on… I cre­ated two work­shop bun­dles I think you wont want to miss out on. The first bun­dle of online work­shops is the Home and Fam­ily Pack­age. It costs only $19.95 for 5 online work­shops. This makes them only $3.99 per work­shop and gives you a total sav­ings of $89.80. The sec­ond bun­dle of online work­shops is the Hol­i­day Project Pack­age. It costs only $16.95 for 4 online work­shops. This makes these only $4.24 per work­shop and gives you a total sav­ings of $42.85. Each online work­shop is includes color pho­tos, step by step instruc­tions and a com­plete sup­ply list.

Cre­ative Hugs!
