My Altered Thimble Thingy Complete

Hi, well I finished it today..............whoopee, never thought I would, so much trial and error. Still its my first big project and have really enjoyed making it and have learn't a lot from it.

I finished it off with various stamps, buttons and a large brad (which I stamped with a girls face) all alcohol inked, polymer clay decorations, gold wire, beads, odd pierced earrings which I had picked up at the second hand market, just great for sticking in wood. There are also some bits that my buddies had sent me over the year and wanted to use them in this project rather than be stuck away in my prese' box.

One of my best buys was a box of childrens wooden dominos for 20p from the second hand market they are brilliant for painting or stamping, almost anything, have made a couple of domino books from them as well...........will have to put that in the gallery sometime and show you.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my completed project and if you would like to leave any comments please do.

Enjoy the weekend,
