Purse from an old cigar box

Purse is made from a cigar box that i painted and decoupaged.Plus some found trinkets glued on.

Pins and necklaces are made from an old dominoe game we had.I glued on the pics and used diamond glaze to seal.I also use other old pieces of broken or odd pieces of costume jewelry to dress them up. One dominoe with the rose was hand painted.

Just do what you love (and it sounds like you do) and you'll continue to have great results.

I love what you have done here and you don't have to be a pro around here...it actually helps if you are not...then you are willing to try so many new things that inspire you from this site. I like to do decoupage but I haven't tried to make usable things out of them yet...but I will now, thanks, Georgia Posted: 1:47 pm on December 31st

Welcome to the site...I'm glad you're here. I love the handbag and the necklaces you've made. I must admit that I am a bit of a domino collector so the necklaces really caught my eye. Nice work! Thanks so much for sharing. Have fun on the site!

Be Well,
