Soldering Swap

I am so lucky to be involved in a fabulous soldering swap this month with some very talented Flickr friends. We soldered 7 charms and are sending one to each participant. I can't wait to get mine in the mail! Here are the soldered charms I made for my friends Carol, Tina, Layla, Dede, Teresa, Britt, and Dale!! I decided to use beveled glass this time and I used all vintage photos. I played with the photos on my photoshop first. I tied each charm with a vintage ribbon that I found when I was at the International Quilt Festival. Thanks to contributors of the flickr group "Collage Images" for several of the vintage images. Swaps are so much fun!

OOH...another fabulous book is out....Altered Art Projects by Jill Haglund, and I really love it! There are so many great projects and ideas in it...all in an altered vintage shabby style.
I enjoyed seeing work from my friend Deb Trotter in it! ,"Ride that Art Pub Pony!"
