Have been making a mess today. Sian is hosting another challenging swap over on DC. The three m's swap - metal, mesh and messy!

What you can not see in the photo is all the lovely little starbursts of mica and embossing powders all over the worktop, washing machine and dishwasher where I forgot to actually use ink to stick them with before turning on the heatgun!! and was very messy! LOL
I have not decided if these are going to be my final offerings or if I am going to play somemore.

This one (left)has a background of cosmic shimmer embossing powder and mica gold pigments in utee. Then the mesh is metal which has wire threaded through it and a dangly heart charm.

The one on the right has a background of tissue paper, stuck with glossy accents - this dries a whole lot faster than pva - which then had some mica powder put on and then some metallic rub ons. The mesh is from my tangerine bag - a lovely brown colour instead of garish orange! The metal is a watch dial, with a spinner in the middle that spins.

This is mica powders into utee and then sequin waste is pressed into it while still warm. The fan is some metal sheet and have hung a star charm wrapped in wire from the bottom.
