Hello and welcome back to the mid month reminder of
This month the team from OurCreativeCorner want you to share with us how you capture your cherished memories. All types of art are welcome: cards, tags, canvases, mixed media, etc., but your project MUST INCLUDE A PHOTOGRAPH.
Some of you may already know my passion for using photographs of my ancestors with my projects and I also did this time. I created a necklace using two sheets of thin mica, some satin ribbon, metal findings, alcohol ink and a portrait showing two lovely boys.
One of them might well be my great-grandfather whom I was lucky to know when I was a kid. He died at the age of 93 and I still remember his very own study he used to take me to to listen to his old records or some classical music from the old multi-band radio. I loved the names of cities from all over the world on his world-receiver, the lovely and dark old furniture and paintings there and my great-grandfather sitting by my side - both of us listening to the music.
Some of you also may remember the altered tin I recently made for my very best friend. This is its content ;)
I put the torn image and a chit chat sticker between two layers of mica sheets and punched five holes for the brads. Then I gave the mica a treatment with alcohol ink "rust" and fixed the two hinges to the encased image using tiny brads. The gear was glued to the lower hinge using special crafting glue. Done.
I hope you like it! You have to hop over to our challenge blog to see what my talented team mates created for your inspiration!!!
Happy crafting and I look forward to seeing your entries soon,
