Here is the pressie I made for Nicks birthday - I know she has received it ( a bit late but that just seems to be the norm at the moment!) so can now put up some piccies. It is a hanger made out of more beer mats - well I do have a rather large number of them to use up. I was originally going to make a book, but they are very difficult to display so went with this idea instead.
The top mat has been covered in several layers of brights utee. Starting with a layer of clear utee and then just sprinkling on different colours in a
random fashion. I then stamped an image on the top. The little carm hanging underneath is made of watch parts set in glossy accents.
The second one is a background of acrylic paints, swirled together and then heated with the heat gun to add texture - and speed up the drying process as I am inpatient. I then stamped some Paperartsy stamps onto some metal, embossed it and then cut them out and stuck them on. Added a small heart charm underneath.
For the last one, I started with some viva terra paint to get some texture, then painted over the top with some acrylic. Added some Viva ferra paint on part of it and rubbed some of the viva inka over the top. Attached a book plate and filled it with bits and sealed them in with glossy accents. Added some metal discs hanging from the bottom. Stringed it all together with some re-cycled old jewellry.
