Vintage Mixed Media altered picture frame : Let your mind travel with balloons...

Hello Mixed Media friends ! I will share with you today my entry for the Mixed Media place challenge. The moodboard of this month is so inspiring, with soft tones of brown, grey and pink... I love it.   I let myself get inspired by these smooth colors and the balloons... I just loved the balloons theme...

Layered Bracelet for a vintage look !

A few weeks ago, I created this bracelet for a contest, organized on Finnabair Open Studio Facebook page. I didn't win (so many competition with amazing pieces ! :)) but I wanted for a long time to make this kind of bracelet. I used only Vintaj supplies for this piece. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE Vintaj supplies: they fit perfectly the kind of jewelry I like to create: vintage, feminine and delicate. I used the following supplies: the oval layering bangle, the natural brass dragonfly pendant, the framed scrollwork pendant,... [Lire la suite]
