I wish I could take credit

for what I am about to share with you
but alas it just isn't so!
Several weeks back I was scoping out some new blogs and there was this beautiful butterfly pendant that I fell in love with. The coolest thing was it was created from aluminum cans, die cuts and alcohol inks. It just so happens I have most of the things needed to create this.
 I affixed the butterfly to a piece of slate that I had previously stamped
with flourishes and the word dream.
 I forgot about these watch bits and bobs, so glad I found them as
 it sort of adds some Steampunk flair
 It's rather large so I decided to wear it in my hair as well as my daughter.
My darling daughter just also happens to be wearing a funky skirt I made out of old
 ties. It used to be mine about 20 years so I've altered it several times to ensure she could keep wearing it.
So I just want to say THANK YOU to who ever that  amazing blog that was!
Have a great Thursday

Trying something new

Happy Monday!
I have a zany project to share today, I guess you could call it a sculptural painting.
This years county fair them is "Go Green", so I pulled out aluminum cans, cardboard and a used aluminum cookie sheet to create this little ditty.
I snuck some hardware from the hubby too but that's a secret! (wink-wink)
 There's about 10+ coats of acrylic paint on 
this 8x20 inch canvas to give it 
a futuristic yet rustic look.
Scrounging through my old supplies, I found 
Making Memories booklet of "Mixed Font" that I used for the wording.
I love this look & hope you do to!
