woyww #166--art charms for Altered Arts

You know how some people can't show you their desks, because
they're working on a gift, or some super-secret design team project?

Well, nothing that intriguing here.  I can't show you my desk, simply
because the camera is missing in action.

***sigh***

Anyway, I CAN show you this already-photographed charm, which
I'm also sharing for Altered Arts magazine--it's a tiny quilted
inchie, using an Omni Gel transfer, with glass beads and a bit of lace:

It really IS just an inch square--I'll share another charm soon.

Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, everyone, and thank you
as always to Julia for hosting this weekly event!

Some challenges?  Yes, please:
Frilly and Funkie--get crafty with canvas
Word Art Wednesday--as always, use an encouraging word, sentiment, or scripture
Oldie but a Goodie challenge--Friends, and (always) use at least 6 mos old:
the beads, trim, image, and thread

Oh dear, hope you find your camera soon. Lovely charm :)

FibreJunky said...

Bet it isn't worse than mine. One of the cats seems to have taken to desk surfing. As a result, it looks like a tornado has gone through my craft area.

Wonder if I could manage to make something that tiny.

That is so pretty, tell me about that tranfer gel, I have never heard of it but would love to get into transfers of some of my photos (and some vintage ones). Do you recommend it? Is Omni the brand? Thanks for visiting me earlier. Barb
