Itty Bitty Things

I'm on a Retro Cafe Art high! I love using these products and I always always find myself inspired!! 
Here's one of my new pieces...I think I used at least 10 RCA items. Things like two different shadowboxes,gears,candle sticks,butterfly,egg,Sandra Everton's resin pieces,key and much more! A girl can get lost with so many yummy things to work with! ( :


Today,I have a new tutorial for you using what else...RCA Designs!
They're itty bitty assemblages and I think their super sweet and fun to make!


First I glued and assembled the Mini-Ornate-Framed-Shrine,then covered them in delicious UmWowStudio cardstock.I also inked the edges.


I painted a spool black,added some metallic luster and wrapped a cord around it.



I then added some Iced Enamel embossing powder on the frames and then covered them in Amazing Clear Cast


Next I took some more itty bittyies and covered them in paper.Here I used houses and angels.


and instead of using these as the wings,I turned them into clouds.

 
then I added some words ,added a tiny number and all I had left to do was assemble.

Before I go...
I'm thrilled to share that my Retro Cafe piece called "In my Heart I know the Way" is on the cover of the new issue of Somerset Studio. I think you would have had a nice chuckle if you saw me when I found out...just about fell off my chair! Pretty darn exciting.Pretty darn thankful.

Here's to making every minute count,

Congratulations on being published in the latest Somerset Studio. We love your Amazing Alterables project and the message about knowing the way in your heart really resonates. Your itty bitty shadow boxes are darling as well. I love that it is a modern twist on retro images and ephemera. Somerset Studio May 2015
