A Little Art

It has been so long since I posted any artwork that I thought maybe I should catch up a here goes...

First is the set of charms that I made for a Paper Traders swap. They were to reflect the colors in a box of 16 crayons and were presented in the little box that I made using an image of a vintage box of Crayolas. The charms were made of tiny photos embedded between two layers of natural mica.
Here are some fabric ATCs that I made for a swap on Paper Traders. They are pieced with different fabrics to make the backgrounds, then embellished with pearls, fibers, and glitter.
This is the tip-in journal spread that I did for my friend Marion. Her theme was School Days.
Finally we have a shrine I made for our Paper Traders group's Anniversary Project. The theme was "the number 4" as we have had our little art group for over 4 years now! This little shrine features a mini-matchbox set behind the opening showing off the four little girls. The main background is some spray webbing paper that I made up myself. A lot of German scrap and a couple of word charms complete the assemblage.
