The Last of the Charms for Now

Polymer Clay Hearts

Fabric Beads

Bottlecap Charms

Here are the last of the charms that I am doing for the swap on the Mixed Media Art Friends group. There are a couple more sets that I forgot to get pictures of. There were 14 different sets total, 5 in each set, so that's 70 charms! I am *almost* charmed-out for awhile.

Paper Flower Book

This is the paper version of the Flower Book Exchange, like in the previous post. Here are pictures of the 4 fronts, 4 backs, and the bound book. I began with paper bases, and added other papers, fabrics, and embellishments. Even though I used paper, I sewed almost everything down just as though it were fabric.

Fabric Flower Book

This is a book that I made for a one-on-one exchange on Mixed Media Art Friends. It is made out of little 2-sided 4 x 6 inch fabric "quilts". The bases are all fabric, and there are paper embellishments on some.

It was a lot of fun to make, but fairly labor intensive doing 8 different little quilties. I punched holes in the sides and set eyelets in with my Crop-o-Dile, which really worked out well. I took pictures of the 4 fronts and the 4 backs, but forgot to take a picture of the final bound book--oops--but the binding is the same as the paper book.
