So I had to go around my fingers to get to my thumb in order to place photo's here, but at least it's working.
I had a Banner due in one of my groups (AFTCM) The theme is Vintage Winter (which covers a very wide range) I wanted an industrial look. Sorry, but that's my comfort zone. Here's what I came up with.
Then in my charm group we had several things going. One was a color palette and Jan. was a range of pinks and reds. You had to use at least two colors. I decided to make a bead from fimo using two colors and then adding a star.
we had a challenge box. We purchased a box with 6 months of challenges. Each thing has a month marked on it and then we got a package of embellishment's that we may or may not chose to use. We can use our own findings and wire. Jan is a glass blob...two, but we only had to use one.I decided to give it a dicrohic glass look by using gold leaf and spider web fabric, then backing with felt. Y'all know I'm not crazy about live spiders...but I do adore the look of them.
For Feb. we got a wood laser cut heart, in the embellishments I found a brass flower that I colored with alcohol ink and added a crystal bead (also included) I made copper wire filigree and backed it with red felt.
we have a valentine swap...either a pin or a pendant, so I decided to add to this creation and make it sing...
I hope my partner likes it. I do.
Then we had some ATC's going on an Elephant swap and a Queen of Hearts.
and what have you been doing?
