Paper Beads....

I haven't posted in a while but thought I would post my paper beads I made.... I went into a frenzy and created a ton of paper beads.. 

It's pretty addicting once you get going... I just cut many different strips in different ways.. Once they are rolled I dip them in a modge podge/water solution and let dry twice (repeated), then when they are dry I coat them with a crystal glaze,... I love the jewelry they create!

This is half of what I made... I love them all and I created some jewelry with them....

A necklace and matching bracelet I created.. 

Bracelet and earrings I created... with a star charm..

That's all I have for now.... Let me know what you think? I have these listed for sale if your interested, just let me know...
Thank-you as always for visitng me and I hope you will visit again.. Leave a message so I can stop by your blog!

Missing a dear friend......

I just wanted to share this altered hoop for a very dear friend who passed away this year... I created this special for her as she was fighting cancer, and just down... She loved it, and that made my heart happy... I have her laying heavy on my mind lately and just missing her and wanted to share this altered hoop with everyone...

I can't help but wonder where it is now, but I know that it touched her heart and that touched my heart! ♥
Missing you dear friend!!

Altered tin with a gift....

I am sharing the altered tin I did for one of our group swaps.. I also included a little gift inside the tin for my swap partner... The gift is a jewelry set I made for her using paper beads I made.. I am addicted to making paper beads and jewelry using them...
Here is the altered tin I did....


Here is the inside of the tin...



I really had fun with this tin, and am happy with how it turned out... Now on to the jewelry set I did for her...


I used paper beads I made, along with some other beads and a cross charm.. I am working on several other sets, and more paper beads to create even more jewelry sets... It's so addicting!!

Altered Embroidery Hoop

I love altered ART, and all the different ways you can alter just about anything... We have a monthly altered ART swap in our group https://groups.io/g/CreatingARTFriendships.. This month the swap was to alter an embroidery hoop.. I have never attempted this before, so I was excited to work on this.. Here is what I came up with....


I LOVE the way it turned out, What do you think?? I made up a bunch of different flowers and used some of them in this hoop.. I love to make my own flowers, as well as all of my embellishments..


This picture shows a bit of a close up, and shows how I raised the frame with cheese cloth behind it..
This was a FUN swap and am looking forward to the next one, we are doing an altered CD..

Thank-you so much for visiting my blog!! Have a blessed day!

Washi Tape Card...

I have to admit I have never used washi tape for a card... I do like the way I used it and how it looks on this card.. The flowers are colored with sharpies, and matched perfectly with the washi tape..  


I used the black cardstock as the card, and layered teal and white cardstock on top.. The flowers are raised with foam to give it a little pop...


I entered this card into the following challenges...
