This paper is very, very easy to make! Use high rag count watercolor paper, mix dye with water (because you don’t want the dye to dry quickly) and glom it all over the paper. Throw salt over the whole thing and let it dry in your garage overnight. Next morning, wipe off the salt. Bemoan the fact that the freezer you left the paper drying on is also now blue.
I used this piece as the background for a round robin collage project that is now hanging over my bed!
This is my bracelet with all the charms from the ArtErratica swap. Acutally I only did a half set and it was more than enough goodies! My favorite charm is probably the red glass heart with the silver detailing and the deer stamped on the glass. I’m guessing it’s a pun on “dear heart” and it tickles me, but I really enjoyed them all!
I cut a length of sterling chain, added the charms and closed it with a jump ring. I may frame it in a shadow box like my other charm swap bracelet, just attaching it with hot glue so I can pull it out and wear it when I’m feeling the urge…but locking it up in my jewelry box just seems like a crime!
