the quilted fabric inchie charm bracelet finale!

For my first November (can you believe it's November already???)
Altered Arts Magazine project,
here they are, the final quilted inchie charms . . .

Let's start with with "hope":
(I'm particularly fond of the bits of unraveled twine that make up
the nest.)

And here is "faith":
 These were done using Omni Gel to make transfers, and are
1 inch square fabric inchies.  The beads add a little width, they
aren't included in the inch.

Vintage glass buttons, keys, fabric, and glass beads on jewelry wire finish
this off into a charm bracelet.  I think it would be fun to make some fabric
inchies to swap, too, but that's a whole other project, yes?

All of the collage images are from Altered Pages--did you hear that Altered 
Pages is the proud new owner of The Mailbox Muse?  Cyndi (of Altered Arts)
will now have more time to focus on the magazine, and Jean (of Altered Pages)
is already so adept at putting just the right pieces together to make a fabulous
kit, that the Mailbox Muse is a perfect fit.  Were you lucky enough to get a
reservation for The Orient Express kit before it sold out?  It's sure to be full of
all kinds of altering inspiration!
Challenge me up with my friends at:
Crafty Catz--add texture (you know I like that nest!)

Enjoy your weekend.

Each is a perfect little piece of art but then to see it as a whole, what an amazing piece of wearable art you have created, so fabulous.

These are absolutely amazing mini works of art. Love that there is a real theme for each one and you have put so much detail into them. And how well do they work together! Just genius. Hugs, Buttons x
