New Crafty Collage jewelry!

I just completed another collage bracelet!  I had a duplicate Calvin & Hobbes book and needed a crafty way to start using it up.  So I made the collage bracelet and a matching pendant!  

Calvin & Hobbes Recycled Bamboo Tile Necklace & Bangle Bracelet set. 
Necklace pendant: I cut up a placemat (seen under the necklace stand) and decoupaged Calvin & Hobbes comics on it. 
Bangle Bracelet: I cut up the Calvin & Hobbes comics and collaged it on a blank unfinished wooden bangle.  Lined the inside of the bracelet with recycled Victoria's Secret ribbon for comfort and a pop of color!
Both covered with a thick glossy sealer. 

Also in this post:  Better pictures of the previously posted Leopard Print collage bracelet!

I need to take better pictures of these and the new ones I made

and now that taxes are done, I just need to re-tidy my craft room and get those pix taken!

Here are some of the Shrinky Dink necklaces I have made in the past year.

one of my own photos:
these next few are from Pulp book covers

and of course, the Velvet Elvis!


Photos in the Tampa Artist Emporium Emerge Photo Show

These are the photos I have on display at the Tampa Artist Emporium.  I took phone shots of them, so they are hard to see the detail, but you can find the originals on my flickr page.

Collage Bracelet!

Collage Bracelet!

I took a Leopard print gift bag, cut it into thin strips, and glued it to a wooden bangle (with Liquitex Acrylic Gloss Medium, the same way you would decoupage with Mod Podge) and then lined the inside with Victoria's Secret pink ribbon (gotta use that pretty stuff somehow!).

Sorry for the iPhone quality pics, I haven't had much time to get a better one.

Art Show tomorrow night!!

I have some fun photographs in the show!  Come join us!
