I am learning about Steam Punk. I had this ceramic pottery picture frame which I purchased from a garage sale. I decided to put a fabric backing and a rusty tin heart started the project. An old skeleton key, some various watch parts and rustic chain, some clock parts and Walla!   I covered the back with cardboard from a cereal box and trimmed the edge with some braiding to protect  the wall once it is hung.

This is one of many different Christmas tree ornaments I made for the 2012 season. I found a photo for these on pinterest and adapted them to be about 3" tall for the Christmas tree. I made these Mad Hatter Hats out of cereal boxes, then pasted scrapbooking paper to them distressed them with calligraphy ink, I made each hat pin with stick pins and beads and then added a ribbon bow and a few sprigs of silk pine and artificial berries for glam. Then I made the infamous tag from a card stock.

Kitty Cat Dotee

I made this little Kitty Cat Dotee for a very special Lady who traded for a handmade tote bag which I love.
The kitty has a pink metal heart charm nose and a paw print necklace charm.
