Green Paper challenge!

Ok here's my collage for Green Paper's monthly challenge. I started with a canvas board and rubbed some stamp ink all over then added some vintage notebook paper from a notebook that I found at the antique store. I then added the picture of the girls and a chapter one from a vintage book. Then added a transparancy of a school book page I scanned and then a piece of broken paint brush. I wanted it to look like the things they've learned in school. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks Green Paper!

Making jewelry!

So I've tried my hand at jewlery making! Gotta keep the mind moving at all times ya know! I just got so inspired by blogs and books and just jumped in! Some are made from glass beads and others vintage keys and vintage rhinestone jewlery. The Moments one has a piece of vintage lace inside to pieces of glass. I bought the kit from Hobby Lobby, my favorite store! There are also some vintage crystals from an antique store in Paducah, KY. Love those! The pink cameo was inspired by a project in Belle Armoire Jewelry, but I did it a different way than the book shows because I got frustrated doing it that way so I figured out a way easier for me. But anyways, anyfeed back would be wonderful and so appreciated! Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!!
