This was created for a swap at the Embellished Circus. I feel like I am finally reclaiming my creative groove after going relatively dormant for the last year or so. I got this little chunky frame for a dollar at Target and knew it had potential. I wish I had a before pic of the bright turquoise frame with the picture of a cartoon orange crab so you could really dig the transformation! Anyway, this one was done, as usual, with a bizarre wabisabi, mad scientist approach. The outer frame is coated with acrylics, alcohol inks, twinkling h20s, pearl ex powders, and a nice coating of UTEE! The focal frame has a background of twinkling h20s under the glass (and some stars) with a polymer clay face and resin dragonfly on top. Ah, lets not forget those microbeads I love so much!

The next Circus Swap I am playing in is a birdhouse exchange. Here is a work-in-progress glimpse...feathers, acrylics, pearlex, twinkling h2os, embossing powders...that is just the first

I don't know if you remember me, but I have been visiting your blog regularly, but have not been able to type. Now I can talk to my computer, and it types for me, so I will be coming around the visiting again and catching up on everyone's blog. Hope all is well with you and that you had a happy Fourth of July.

Oh Nic, the chunky frame is EYE CANDY! Love the rippled "bubbly" finish and the colors and images you create with are too gorgeous!

Looking forward to seeing the birdhouse evolve! Glad you found your muse!
