More Treasures

As promised here are the pictures of the other pieces of Idea-ology that I made in Tim Holtz's class last Saturday. This necklace was the frosting on the cake and very easy to make. The black heart was created with a mold and ultra black embossing powder. Tim had this already done for us so all we had to do was rub some of his paint dabbers on it to get it to look like soap stone. He even had several pieces of dictionary print in our packets so we could choose what word we wanted. It might be hard to see but I chose "Cherish" because it is a piece that I will cherish for a very long time. Take a look at the close up.

And last but not least, here is the charm bracelet we made. Can you believe we made all three pieces in two hours. Unbelievable! We each received a set of fragments and a full set of the alphabet charms so we could spell out what ever we wanted. Oopsie! Looks like I spelled DREAM backwards on my bracelet. I had mine turned over so that when I connected my jump rings, everything was facing forward. No big deal- all I have to do is unfasten the two outside letters and put them on the other end. the "A" can stay where it is. Click on the picture for a closer look.

Here is picture with all my "little pretties" together. When I have all three of them on, I am just stylin'- Tim Holtz style.

Not much else to talk about today. I have the house to myself for the weekend which is pure heaven. I am working on an altered book of "Doors" which I need to finish this weekend. On our Florida vacation we went to Raleigh, N.C first to visit my daughter and son-n-law and see the new house. While we were there we went to Duke University and I took a ton of pictures of the architecture. The arched doors and doorways were magnificent and I wanted to capture them in a book. I am teaching an altered book class this week and I want to have mine finished as a sample.
Don't forget the "Closing the Door" sale over at The Stamp Castle. Everything is 25% off while supplies last until the end of the month. I think I will be doing a bit of shopping myself to pick up a few more alphabet sets. Which means I had better see what is on my shelf so I don't order duplicates- one more project to add to this weekend. At this rate I am going to be out in the garden pulling weeds with a flashlight.

Have fun and enjoy!
