Red Lead Groupie!

Post #3 in one night....I must be snowed in!! LOL!!

This will be a short post I promise! I wanted to tell you about a great group that I joined up with recently. The Red Lead Paperworks.This is their storefront. Here is their blog. And here is the Yahoo group. As one of my "New Year Adventures", trying new things is it! This is a great group of people and they do all kinds of altered art. Altered Art - my new adventure.

After lurking the site for a while and finally ordering some of their cool stamps, I took a dive into a couple of their swaps.

First is a Domino Swap. This was due last week. Here we had to alter a domino (3 for 3 swap) and use one of the Red Lead images (stamps or collage sheet). Here is my submission:

This is a magnet. I used a domino (of course!), a Red Lead Pixie Stamp, vintage sheet music, a heart button, a couple beads, decopage and ink. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I also joined in on the Charm Swap due at the end of February. Again, a new adventure. I did some research and came up with a cool idea using Shrinky Dink paper. I already had some tools I bought after my Wacky Woman class at Stamp Fanci, and my sister left some of her beads here from our holiday crafting - I was in! This is what I'm gonna send in...

For this, I used a red image of the Red Lead Pixie stamp on Shrinky Dink paper. Baked and sealed. Then I used a gold safety pin & beads.

I had beads all over and had hand cramps, but I did it!! I finished and they didn't look too bad. What do you think??

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've been busy trying to finish up some of my SU club cards kits that my Demo sends me - I was way behind on that. I have to get cracking on some Valentine stuff and get busy using my new Bind-it-All. I have some cool ideas for this!

Until tomorrow friends.....

GO STEELERS!!!
