Mini Shadow Box

Feb 19, 2014

Here is anoth­er exam­ple of cre­at­ing a faux sol­dered bor­der using met­al foil tape and zig zag dec­o­ra­tive scis­sors. I think this type of edge real­ly com­pletes a project beau­ti­ful­ly. The mini shad­ow box is filled with one of my hand­made Frozen Char­lotte dolls that I altered with paint, some Maya Road Paper Posies, an Altered Maya Road Wood­en But­ton and a punched but­ter­fly accent­ed with a Maya Road Rhine­stone Trim piece. I cut a piece of Wendy Vec­chi Stu­dio 490 Clear­ly For Art Mod­el­ing Film and cov­ered the shad­ow box front to keep every­thing in place, just anoth­er awe­some use for this fun prod­uct. The pat­terned papers used are by Pink Paislee. Yes I do hoard this paper line. I love every­thing Rebec­ca designs. This shad­ow box hangs by beau­ti­ful rosary type beads and has...

Trash to Treasure Shrine Pendant

Jan 20, 2014

I had a lit­tle mishap with a vin­tage salt shak­er and had to keep it because of the way the front sec­tion broke. I was think­ing it would cre­ate a super cute shad­ow box type project so I hung on to it. Well, the oth­er day as I was look­ing at it I thought it looked like a shrine. This is when I had a light bulb moment… cre­ate a big funky shrine pen­dant. The first thing I need­ed to do was smooth out the sharp edges. I applied sol­der­ing tape all along the bro­ken edges and start­ed sol­der­ing. Once I had the this as I liked I start­ed dig­ging in my vin­tage jew­el­ry pieces for per­fect rhine­stone accents. When at flea mar­kets, antique shops or thrift stores I love look­ing for bro­ken jew­el­ry...

Plaster, Plaster, Plaster

Jun 24, 2013

This is all that is on my mind at the moment. I tell ya I do believe I found a new love. I look at EVERYTHING and think man that would look awe­some cov­ered in plas­ter. This reminds me of my mom when I was younger. If that woman had a can of spray paint and it did­n’t move it got paint­ed… that women would spray paint any­thing and every­thing until the can was emp­ty. I love the tex­ture you can cre­ate with plas­ter and the smooth­ness you can get when cre­at­ing items from molds. It’s just the most amaz­ing stuff. You can carve on it, paint it, ink it, stamp it and of course cov­er it in bees wax and here are just a few of the projects I have in the works. I...

Creative Play

Jun 11, 2013

I have a seri­ous love for frozen Char­lotte dolls and was so excit­ed when I found a small bisque bust of one at a flea mar­ket. Well last night, I decid­ed to make a mold of that bust and then one idea turned into anoth­er, then anoth­er and I end­ed up with her. She still needs a per­ma­nent spot in an art piece and maybe tonight one idea will turn into anoth­er, then anoth­er and I will have a fin­ished can­vas to show you tomor­row. I find late night cre­ative play to be the best. There are no phone calls to answer, no emails to write, no errands to run it’s just you and your art....

Altered Frozen Charlotte Dolls

Jun 6, 2013

I have to show you how Julie Smith Camp­bell alters some of my Hand­made Frozen Char­lotte Dolls as I think you just might be inspired by her cre­ations. I know I cer­tain­ly am. I think this Spring piece is so love­ly and  unique. I love how she incor­po­rat­ed the bro­ken egg shell for the base of this piece. And look how Julie altered these spoons. How can you not love any­thing that includes vin­tage spoons, Frozen Char­lotte Heads, rhine­stone trim, pearls, sil­ver glass glit­ter and oth­er awe­some vin­tage items. And just look at this adorable altered project. These are not my Frozen Char­lotte Dolls but these cer­tain­ly do inspire me to cre­ate some tiny bal­leri­na’s with mine. So cute! I think Julie and I could do some seri­ous dam­age at a flea mar­ket togeth­er....

Altered Frozen Charlotte Dolls

Feb 18, 2013

It is so nice see­ing how oth­ers use my “Hand­made Frozen Char­lotte Dolls”. Some leave them as is when plac­ing them in their projects and some alter them with paint or alco­hol ink. I thought I would share with you two artists who have cre­at­ed some pret­ty unique items with their Frozen Char­lotte Dolls. First up is Julie Smith Camp­bell, her blog A Vin­tage Chic is filled with loads of cre­ative vin­tage eye can­dy. While on Pin­ter­est, I stum­bled upon Julie’s adorable altered lock­et, shown below, using one of the heads of my hand­made Frozen Char­lotte Dolls. You can read about her Sweet Char­lottes and view some of her oth­er beau­ti­ful cre­ations on her web site here. Next are two pieces cre­at­ed by Sonia Her­nan­dez Doneghue. Sonia has a real­ly unique style that I always find so...
