I wanted to share what I've been up to for the last few days ~
If you hadn't noticed my Etsy shop has been empty for a couple months. I was letting everything expire so I could see what I had left and I was also collecting new and different goodies from here and there.
Well, for the last few days I've been compiling, photographing and loading it all into the store -
What's New - I've added several jewelry related pieces - Eiffel Tower Charms; Mini Bird Cages; Kraken (octopus) and a way cool garden gate charm that has two doors that actually open. Once these doors are open there is enough room to create a mini collage inside!!! How cool is that? I'm planning on sharing a tutorial showing how to embellish it.
I found some cool vintage looking tinsel garland - antiqued gold and a wired chocolate brown/bronze colored.
Recently I was lucky enough to purchase a whole box full of new old stock Victorian Scrap (a.k.a. German Scrap) - you know the die-cut embossed images printed in Germany. Well I've been sorting and arranging, measuring and photographing. These images are WAY cool and can be used for collages, cards, gothic arches, atc's, scrapbooks, etc. I've still got about 1/2 of them to go but will hopefully get it all loaded in the next day or so.
What's Old is New - I have been hoarding lots of vintage goodies to share with you including a bunch of nifty cigar bands which I love to incorporate into collages; I found more cool flash cards in different sizes that are perfect for making Banners, cards and gothic arches and also a stash of watchmaker vials that are so much fun to use in altered jewelry; collage and mixed media creations.
I've also got some choice pieces for around the home including a Lefton's Dainty Miss Jam Jar; a cool looking Art Deco blue/yellow salt & pepper shaker set with a little stand and a few other goodies.
Steampunk / Vacuum Tube Goodness - I was also lucky enough to find another stash of old vacuum tubes. I know some people say they aren't really steampunk but hey it screams it to me so I say go for it ;) After all, it's your art and if it makes you happy that's what counts right?
So, I invite you over to take a peek at my shop and enjoy browsing at all the goodies.
Come back and tell me what you'd like to see, what you like or even what you don't like.
