I have mailed off the charms for one of the Yahoo groups I belong to... In This House. The charms had images of birds and/or either hands, moons or nests. I used watercolor paper (2 layers)for the base. I then covered them with batik fabric and fussycut various birds etc, some of paper, some fabric. I covered them with sparkley glaze, added a crystal, punched holes for and added the hanger, dipped in embossing plastic on the edges, and Voila! This one was extra, so I added beads and a long soutache braid for a necklace. Too fun!
I have been in a very "nesty" sort of mood this spring, and these charms are an homage to that feeling. I have looked through the new Studios issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, it is a real inspiration. Slowly but surely I am working my way through the chaos in my studio, I may never have a space worth publishing, but eventually it will be much more functional and more conducive to creativity. A little better every week.
