I've always secretly wanted to be in this magazine. I mean secretly since it premiered a couple of years ago. Ok, pretty much from the moment I first laid eyes on it. Everything in it has been repurposed some how. And everything in it is always so clever and cool and I really really look forward to it's release.
|My own little Wizard of Oz collection|
My publication in this issue was the happy result of a dual challenge. Greencraft had a call out for projects made from vintage books. I'd done books before and love using them so I was all ears. But then I thought about it and realized I couldn't submit what I'd done before.I decided to make it a self challenge as well and really push myself to come up with something I hadn't done before.
|Wizard of Oz jewelry- what's not to love?|
What I ended up mailing off to Stampington was a dissembled book. I took a classic, The Wizard of Oz, and used the cover to make a notebook, the spine and some text to create a brooch, and one of the illustrations to make a pendant. I've had a hard time not sharing these with you. I really liked how they turned out, especially the necklace.
And that was something fun that happened to me this week. Thanks for letting me share. :)
