I have been interested in creating art since the age of 15. I have spent most of my time painting in oils. It has just been recently that I have begun to play with altered art. I have found this to be very addictive.
This is one of many charms I have made for a swap on a Yahoo Group I belong to. The name of the group is abc_alteredbookclub.
First I cut the paper into a long triangle. I put some glue on the paper and rolled it on a dowel. Let it dry and then embossed it using a leaf pattern stamp. After all was dry I put it in melted ute powder to build it up and give it a glass look. I took a head pin and jump rings to complete the charm.
ATC done for Yahoo Group. It represents "My Muse" who happens to be my Inner Child. Without her I have difficulty playing. When I find myself in a slump I call on her to play with me. Then the magic happens.
