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...
