This is an example of one of my charms I submitted for the January charm swap with I.C.E. I used guitar picks for them and made 21 charms. Each charm, while similar, is different. I was really thrilled with how these turned out.
This is for a "dangly" swap that I made for the bad baby group. We had a secret sister swap that we sent a small art supply and 1 "dangly" work of art. The work of art could be anything, so long as it had something that dangled... and this was what I made. It's an origami kimono that I folded using Italian paper. The kimono 'dangles' from a mini wire hanger, and beads and charms attached to fibers dangle from the hem of the kimono. I hope my secret sister likes it.This is something... not-so-recent. I made this last year as part of a rolodex card swap. The theme of the swap was a self-portrait/contact card. At the same time, there was a little joke between me and a dear online friend of mine... and without going in to the long, drawn out story basically, what came out of the story was that I might (or might not) be a gnome in real life. haha! So... this is my response to that joke... me, as a gnome, painting a self-portrait, which is actually a quick pen sketched self-portrait.
I hope you enjoy the artwork! Thanks for stopping by!
