Saturday's Workout

A cool challenge at Saturday's Workout today -- jewelry. Not something I usually make, but as we did have an opportunity on the cruise in one of Wendy's classes to play around with some of the Tim Holtz Fragments, I thought I could share what I started in class and have been working on at home this week.


I created this piece by applying alcohol inks to the underside of the clear fragment. I then
attached a vintage image to the same side as the AI so that I would not have a sticky side on the front.

I did the same thing here, only I attached a bit of patterned paper to the underside and then stamped on top with Staz-On inks.


I thought the S&H Green Stamp was a bit of fun. Just attached that, as I did the other papers, with Ranger's Glossy Accents to the underside of the clear fragment.
The longer charm was simple, too -- I just cut out the image which came with the frame packaging.
