Creating a Pendant

I tried my hand at making a pendant using a bamboo tile. I wrapped it with a piece of sheet music, brushed it with some ink and found a vintage image I liked. A few small Swarovski crystals and some paper flowers, then the beads...and there's the pendant. Do I want to get into beading...well, that remains to be seen. There's lots of pretty things to make, but I still like paper too much to stray far.

Really lovely results on your bamboo bead Lynn = Really Love it!!! Wrapping it with paper is such a brilliant idea. Stamping on those little puppies can be so tricky, great inspiration thanks. I found myself playing with beads a few times, they are a nice texture compliment to papers I think :)
We were out of town for a week and I got a quick peek at your doorknob ATC on the Home Page art of the ArtTechATC group. It looked SO good! Your peeling paint really worked well! I must tell you, I have a couple of doorknobs cut out of magazines, hadn't done anything with them yet. Hoping I can find them when I'm ready ;)
