Tiny Treasures

We had a great theme over on the paper artsy blog this time and there is so much lovely artwork to browse through and a video..you can pop over here and have a look.

I got the stampboard out and found three tiny pieces I believe 1x1 inch. I coloured them using alcohol inks and them stamped three Lynn Perella faces onto them with Stazon. I love these stamps they are definitely amongst my favs!!

When they were dry I scratched some little bits away to reveal they clay but you can't really see it in the piccies. I then triple embossed with utee then edged them with florentine treasure gold I was going to string these together but decided to keep them to add to other projects..

Thanks for stopping by..........

Miniature Art

I absolutely loved the theme for Paper Artsy this time..I just wish I had had more time to do some more tiny treasures...that's not to say I won't lol..

I loved the dominoes that Leandra had on her little video and have a nosey around you tube..I was going to do a book but decided on a tiny photo frame instead. This will be winging it's way to the USA in the week as the gorgeous little girls in the frame are my sisters grandaughters.

 I started off by dabbing alcohol ink onto the dominoes and let that dry.I then coated it with glossy accents. when that was dry I added the filigree pieces to the front and back before adding some gems.

I flaffed around trying to get the photos to a size that would fit the dominoes without cutting their heads off and printed them out. I made a little folder to mount them onto before sticking them into the dominoes which also acted as a hinge.

I rubbed green amber treasure gold around all the edges and along the seam of the hinge and stuck the photos in using red tape. I used bead caps as little feet

I managed to dig out a little clasp from my stash to act as a lock and stuck that on with tacky glue.
I do apologise for the poor quality piccie but the light was awful when I got the camera out!!

I really have enjoyed this miniature art and can't wait to do some more..I have a feeling I may be getting a call from my other sister lol
