Inspired to journal

I bought a journal the other day to write down ideas and thoughts and had so much fun altering it that I was inspired to create five more! I thought I would offer these for sale in hopes to inspire the desire to journal in others.

Christmas in the air.

I found these wonderful cardboard ornament blanks at a local craft store and these are some of the ornaments I created with them. I love creating "smalls". It is so much fun to put little bits and pieces together and create away!

Witchy creations

I got the chance to use all the wonderful photos and orange-colored pieces I found antiquing last weekend. I took the large round tin and created this piece using the lid, with an old plastic clock piece attached to it. Then I used the bottom of the tin and another clock case and other goodies on this piece.

I used the photo of these 2 women and one of the orange buttons on this one..

another one of the photos and the pair of sparkly black earrings found there way into this one

The last orange button and one of the wood blocks compliment this witch

The last piece used was the little old case with the orange velvet lining. To see close-ups of these pieces just click on my available work link on the left.

Now I have to start creating with the xmas goodies I found, time to break out the mica flakes!!
