Just a quick share...I created this Doctors Bag & Mini Album early last year. The bag itself is pattern paper covered chipboard made similarly to a lunch sack. The first video is a bit of a walkthrough & the second is a slideshow. I won this collection during CHA sneak peek form G45 it's The Olde Curiosity Shoppe & I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it immediately! I really enjoyed creating this project.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFwmqBlV11Y

Peacock Feather Hot Glue Art ATC

"The Peacock Feather" This an ATC(2 1/2''x 3 1/2'') I created using hot glue for the feather & border on recycled chipboard(cereal box) & painted with acrylic paints. One of my flowers & a few embellishments finish off the front.I've done a start to finish tutorial on the hot glue peacock feather here...

What?...Recycled Paper Towel/Tissue Rolls...yep! The left one, I used hot glue for the texture & painted with acrylic paints. The right one is cover with patterned paper & trimmed in some silver tinsel trim with black pearl trim. The larger flowers are my cardstock hand painted flowers. Both of them have beaded trim handles as well. These are just super fun to do & I may have to make a few more...

Steampunk Valentine TV Mixed Media piece I created from a kids valentine chocolates box I saved last year. I used hot glue for the detail under foil tape. Polymer clay embellishments & more hot glue for the picture screen. The side is removable & held on with Velcro tabs. The feet are beads from my stash. I made the front a shaker with heart table scatter & Valentine confetti.

 My first altered art bottle, created early last year. Polymer clay over a recycled wine bottle. This is the front with the Mermaid Tears label done in a faux copper with patina. Painted with lots of iridescent acrylic paints & finished with an antiquing medium & clear satin glaze.
 Closer look at some of the barnacles, corals & dangling shells.
 The seaweed is made of translucent liquid polymer clay, tinted with a tiny amount of acrylic paint which causes the liquid clay to bubble/foam & gives a really interesting look.
A few added faux coins finish off the detail on this piece. I really just enjoyed myself & had a lot of fun with this piece & it's still one of my favorites.

The Lost Tranquility 3D Wall Art Shrine

The Lost Tranquility 3D Wall Art Shrine
"Lost Tranquility" 3D Mixed Media Wall Art piece I created with chipboard, hot glue( for the wood grain), polymer clay & acrylic paint. I actually created this piece to go with the "Mermaid Tears" Altered Art Bottle. The Underwater theme is one of my favorites!
Thanks you so much for stopping by...Till Next Time!

"Spread Your Wings and Dream, Create, Fly" 3D Mixed Media Wall Art piece. Foiled chipboard wings & lots of the bubbled gesso on the frame & gears. The tiles & the face are polymer clay...my other love...lol! Corrugated cardboard for the background & a few found objects for embellishments. Approx 22'' across. The wings were made to fold down for storage/shipping.
"Flight of Fantasy" 3D Mixed Media Wall Art piece. I used an old light bulb sprayed & dripped with some homemade shimmer sprays to give it some age. The frame is a bubble gesso technique done with the heat gun & then painted with acrylic paints. The wings are foil covered chipboard. With some of my handmade flowers & chipboard gears to boot!

Ya gotta start somewhere!

"Flight of Discovery" is a Mixed Media 3D Wall Art piece that I created completely out of chipboard, foil, paint & embellishments. My style is a bit grungy, a bit steampunk & a touch of vintage thrown in for good measure. I thought this was a fitting piece to start out my blog with since I seem to be on a flight of discovery myself! Come along & maybe we can discover a few things together along the way!
