I have always been inspired by collagists (if that's a word?) And so I decided to come out with a range of my own about 30 designs with France, Asia and Flappers as major influences. I have been having a lot of fun designing my own images and creating my slides which I call "slivers" and will be loading them on Etsy later this weekend. I think these things are a lot of fun. Used different images on the front and back so that they are completely reversible. (I hate wearing a necklace that when it flips doesn't have anything to show for itself! This one has a bunch of pearls and rhinestones. I wear mine around my neck, but it would be fun as a fan pull, or hanging from your rearview mirror, around an old bottle or vase or as an gift wrap embellishment. I love wrapping a present with a present. Imagine a bouquet of flowers wrapped in pretty tissue and tied together with a sliver. I offer my first one here. Very interested to know what you think.
It's funny because I have never considered myself artsy...creative yes but not an artist. But I now have a ton scrap and think that I am ready to take on a bigger project. My biggest issue was coming up with an idea and now I have broken the ice and am teeming with things I want to make.
