Hello. Welcome. Over at Paperartsy the theme this fortnight has been Wearable Art. I was quite excited by this cos I recently bought a load of plain t-shirts and have had vague ideas about personalising them. So I was very excited to see Wanda's post. I am still excited about that but, because I am sadly lacking that fabric medium she used, I decided to go with some shrink plastic jewelry.
Oh wow, womble in the shrubbery. Ain't he cool. Forget the necklace a minute. I have to just tell you this Womble was made for me by my grandmother 40ish years ago. My grandmother is 92 now and still going strong. I have three siblings and every year she would make us all a cuddly toy. One year it was wombles. I got Orinoco, hat and scarf included. He agreed to go naked for this picture. If you haven't got a clue what I'm on about then just celebrate your youth........ I'm sorry, but I don't think a teletubby is even in the same league. You got to feel sorry for the kids of today......
I started by stamping the large oak leaf from HP1105 on white shrink plastic and coloured with distress inks. Here's the before (11ish cm) and after (4.5ish cm) size.
Then I did a bit of bead work, keeping with neutral and autumny colours

Love how the detailed stamping is so clear.
