and then stamped a 'grungey' ring around his head using a 'glue stick lid' and some white paint.
the little 'tape measure' stamp down the side is from a Stamp-it Stamp - siset001rg...
and ofcourse I added some little jewelry extra's and an old arcade token.

actually the photo doesn't really show it for it's best
and these are my FAVOURITE BEADS :)
I had some new supplies arrive this and last week
So I've been having fun creating with them
I just love these amazing Brass Pieces, look at the wings on this Solid Brass Dragonfly,
such beautiful detail......
I'm working on a few Paper creations at the moment for TSQ, hope to have them ready to blog either tomorrow or on the weekend, I am basically working full time at the moment between my etsy shop and selling on ebay (one has to pay for ones entertainment somehow ;)
But today I have to tidy my studio....hmmmmmm
the time has come....
I'm being swallowed up by my lovely little creative MESS!!!!
altho I must say,
when I sit down to a clean desk (altho I like the look of it)
I do find it hard to get the creative process happening
How about you
CLEAN DESK or MESSY DESK?
which one are YOU?

and surprise, surprise it's brown.... lol!
I used a few different stamps on my little Ozzie a script on for the body, Stamp-it 'siset001rg' for the wings, Stamp-it 'siset002mc' for the front & Brow, Catslife Press Queen stamp for the eyes, all stamped with Versafine -vintage Sepia.
I also used two of the Collections keyholes (glued back to back) with a collections word sandwiched inbetween.
Once finished I gave everything a rub with Beeswax...it adds a lovely 'soft' finish and a beautiful smell.Other things I added were Hinged Rings,an old key, brads,a vintage carnival token,some string and little words...the Journal is made using some Picture Framing Matt Board, which I covered using some PP then adhered little Ozzie
now onto the Lovely Mail :)
Look what my dear friend Rein sent me
One of her most Beautiful cards,
all of that amazing BG stamping she does, is even more amazing in real life.... along with the card she sent me some Pages from a Vintage German book :)
Thankyou again Rein xxx

I used 1Cor 1:3 for my inspiration
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
This verse speaks to me about the gifts of Grace and Peace that God gives us,
so I really wanted to make a 'gift tag' as part of my expression,
the wings symbolise 'transformation'
the crown 'child of God',
the Flourish at the bottom 'my joy'
the key 'Freedom',
the G2 (two G's) is for 'GRACIOUS GOD'
supplies - manila tag, Distress Ink,Karen Owen Image, American Crafts Rub-on, ribbon,key,scrabble tile, PBS stamp from TSQ, embossing powder, computer journaling,chain and jumprings
