Fish Tales Hangie Danglie

Here is a little fun thing for a swap called Fish Tales Hangie Danglie. I made a watercolor of a mermaid on one side and a collage on the back side so either side could show. I bought a fishing bobber and some lures. I carefully cut the hooks so they would not hurt anyone. I also strung together some beads and little sea shells.
The little images are from Ten Two Studios( April Fish), a Russian cigarette card with a fish on it, and the back ground is a fish label from a fish market.

Paper Slippers

The little collage images inspired me to make something other than a bracelet. The images are from Ten Two Studios "Dainty Dominos", they make fun shoe buckles.
The directions on how to make these slippers are found in a past issue, November 2008 issue of the Monthly Muse, which is also at Ten Two Studios. These slippers will be hanging in my Christmas tree or might make it for a gift for someone special.

"The Raven" paperbag book

The blank book came from Ten Two Studios, it is a paper bag hinge book. I chose the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. I made a raven out of stiff card stock paper so I could use the same bird design through out the book. Here is parts of the book.

The pages that had an opening, from the paper bag, had inserts inside of them with facts about Poe or the Poem. The images came from Ten Two Studio collage sheets. I used the Poe collage sheets, Harry Clarke faux postage, and Oakwood faux postage sheets.
