On My ARTistic Life -the blog of ARTchix Studio owner Helga Strauss, the challenge this week was to make a twinchie (2" square collages) and then make something with it! Helga said, "Frame it in a unique way, turn it into a cool card or piece of jewelry, a nice ornament for a friend....". Helga had a wonderful example on her blog of taking one of the Twinchies she made with paper and making into a pendant using a silver Memory Frame with a large glass insert to protect and enhance it -find out more on her blog. This gave me the idea to create a Twinchie out of fabric and then make it into a necklace!
I created a two-sided piece; here is the back:
The images I used are from the 'Chixies Bubbles' collage sheet, a collaborative effort, via an art swap that was hosted by Helga! The words are from one of the "Tell Me" collage Sheets. I find myself using these sheets all the time now. They often inspire or greatly add to the collage I am working on.
here's me with my necklace . . .
That was really fun to make!
happy birthday to me! lenna young andrews -february 21st, 2010
