So what have I been doing? I have an on going challenge on the group Cherie and I own
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mixedmediastudio check it out if you don't already belong.
Each month I DARE YOU to use something I name...first month was a metal can. You have to make something from the thing I dare you to use. This month was a fork. You could use one or as many as you wanted, but you had to make something using a fork. This is what I made from 2 forks.
Of course as an after thought I should have made it Steampunk so I will probably take it apart.
In the ATC group I belong to (ATC-FUN) we had to make cracked glass ATC's and this is what I did, but I'm thinking I need to embellish before sending. They were fun but look a bit blah.
Not sure you can see the cracks in the glass (layers of UT) but they are there. Those stamps were part of a gift I got from my friend Ceil for my BD.
Robyn has a paper studio as part of our Mixed Media studio and has her own challenges. One due today was a Love letter box with cards. The box was fun to do and I began embellishing in Steam punk fashion but ran out of time. It is due tomorrow, so I posted a pic but will continue to work on it.
I was in such a hurry I just threw a paper towel over all the junk on my work table. This is one of those projects that look much better in person LOL The gears are silver and patina copper..I will be adding a clock and some other do dads.
Also in the works are Birdhouse charms and match pendants and for the same charm group a color palette that changes each month. This month is Spring colors of Yellow, orange and green..so stay tuned.
