Charm pages



The first charm page is for Alison who has spent a long time in hospital recently. Sarah asked us all to make a 4x4 page and a charm for her so I had fun making this. The next page I made for Sarah (or Flo as she is known) as she really liked my recent heritage page. I made the page and charm for her as she is always hosting swaps and she also sent me some stampboard recently which was a nice surprise. I have made the charms by melting painted acetate then wrapping black wire around them and added beads. The metal charms are made using copper plant tags that I cut up and embossed then inked over the persons initial.

Lorriane so long since I have visited your blog. I must get a better system for keeping blogs I like to visit. I love your charms and the tech. is so interesting with the acetate melting. Is it hard to do? I will e-mail you to see if you have instructions. Love them.
