Art Pin Mania!
I began making these Art Pins for an Artist Trading Pin swap on my Surface Design group. I started out with a base of fusion painted papers, paper towels, yarns, threads, dryer sheets, fabric, tissue paper, etc. all glued down in layers. A few of the inchies and papers came from swaps on Art Techniques.
I did a pink one and a blue one a few weeks ago shown in an older post. More recently I made a purple fusion, and a green fusion (which looks much like my blue fusion somehow). Then cut them up and added extra papers, yarn, stitching, beads, wire, etc.
Anyway, I have been absolutely obsessed with making these pins! I couldn' t do anything else. I only needed to make 4 for the swap and I ended up with about 20! Finally, I just sat down and finished them all so that I can move on to something else. The big ones are 1.75 x 2.5 inches, and the small ones are 1.5 x 1.75 inches.
I don't know what I am going to do with all of them--a girl can only wear so many pins. If anyone would like to buy one, let me know. I will sell them for $12 each including shipping. Otherwise, I guess that I have a bunch of Christmas presents ready early!
