What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday--another quilty charm

A BIG thank you to everyone who commented on my quilty charm
last week, I believe I commented back to everyone, and am going to double
 check, so please don't be offended if I missed you.  I did find the camera, but
 then (not concocting stories here, unfortunately) our  computer essentially died.
We (by "we" I mean our computer savvy sons) are still trying to retrieve
some things, but my husband's answer to the problem was to just buy another one. 
Not a whole new set-up, or son, for that matter, just the computer section. 
It works fine, but I'm not used to it yet, so it's still slow going . . .

ANYWAY blahbiddy blah, enough of that!  Here is the next quilty inchie
charm in my series for Altered Arts, I think I like this one even better:
collage image from Altered Pages

Still an inch square, aside from the glass beads, those do extend beyond the
quilty border somewhat.  Omni Gel transfer, bit of lace, Altered Pages image.

So I'm off for a big ol' blog snoop, and you can join the fun too at Julia's
What's on Your Workdesk?  Wednesday party!

Oh, you know I'm entering this in the Frilly and Funkie challenge:
Get Crafty with Canvas!  You can really see the canvasy texture in this pic, too.

How I love this. A huge fan of transfers anyway and I love the effect here (can I pry and ask if it is a family photograph?) This is special.

That is sweet, my parents looked just like that in that era, brings back memories of photos I have of when they were young and first married. I've got to do some transfers, I love that look. So many techniques, so little time....

It's such a sweet pic, I wish I could say it's a family photo, but it's from Altered Pages.

I can tell you I chose it because it reminds me of my husband and me.

Goodness how talented you are. This is fab. We would try inchies but our paws are far too fat for them. :)

Gita said...

I can't believe these are only an inch. I've been wanting to get some pics transferred onto canvas to try out....not on an inchie but for a card or tag. Haven't done it yet!!

Hugs and greetings from Slovenia

Lovely little charm again, love such tiny things! Hugs, Valerie

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Love that charm, such a pretty vintage look. I like all the detailing in it - that's the sort of thing I'm no good at and always admire in other people. The sort of layered look that seems effortless but has entailed a lot of thought - I am completely PANTS at it!!
Hope the new computer has been house trained by now... :)
Hugs, LLJ #72 xx

Don't you just love to hate computers when they mess with your mind and your convenience? At least it's inanimate and doesn't require compassion.
The little inchy is a gem. Delighted to share that.

Omni gel is basically magic . . . okay, no that's not true, it's just a gel you can coat color copies of images with. After it dries, you wet the paper and gently rub off all of it (the paper), leaving a transparent image. Plus, I think they kind of glow after you adhere them to a background, but maybe that's just my imagination!

This is awesome, Trisha! Can't imagine creating something that tiny with these fumbly hands! Love it! :)
