Captured Fairy

I just finished this adorable little captured fairy. I used a salt shaker and distressed the lid with Distress Crackle Paint. I used Tattered Rose on the bottom and Fired Brick on top. You only have to use one to get the crackle, I just wanted the pink to show thru.
I used an image from my Vintage Images CD, and embellished it with wings and glitter. She is standing in microbeads, that are glued to the bottom of the jar.
I hung charms and beads around the top and a distressed tag that says 'To My Valentine."

Inchie Book

So what are inchies you ask? They are little embellished 1" squares of art! Inchies are usually made from fabric or paper or anything you want!

To store my small inchie collection I decided to make this book. It holds 10 inchies per page and can hold up to 400 inchies!

I used a 3" x 6 7/8" chipboard book, Basic Grey Sublime Paper, and various fibers.

I cut the paper as close to the rings as possible, inked the edges, emellished the front a little, then tied the fibers onto the rings.
All that is left to do is grow my inchie collection!

PURSuE Your Art! Changeable art purse

This is my Art Purse I made from Pursue Your Art, it is completly customizable. The inserts come out so you can change the style of your purse whenever you want. I used images from my Vintage Image CD's. The paper is Daisy D's Bellisimo. This one is perfect for ATC fans. There are also two other versions with a 4 x 6 pocket instead.

Bind it All

I finally bought a Bind it All! It's a great tool every book-maker should have. It punches and binds books of all sizes, out of almost anything! I made this little chipboard book in about 5 min. It measures 4 x 3.5" and looks pretty good for my first try. I can't wait to make more!
