25 Days of Gifts - Day #2
Today I have some fun acrylic pieces that I turned into book marks. They are all made using Krystal Kraft acrylic as the jumping off point. I got mine from Outside the Margins but I'm sure lots of places carry them. These gems are available in a wide range of shapes but today I'm sharing two of my favorites...the mask & torso.
Each of the acrylic pieces were colored using Adirondack Alcohol Inks then embellished further with a variety of embellishments.
I turned the torsos into little people by adding a photo to a charm that I attached using E-6000 adhesive. I added word tags as arms and embellished with some awesome fringe for skirts. These are so much fun to make, by varying the colors and embellishments you could make a whole range of little people!

These are fairly quick, cost about $3.00 - $5.00 each by the time you figure the trim, charms, bodies and book mark. Not too expensive but it could be a lot less especially since you can use bits and pieces of things you may have left over from other projects.
So, look like something you'd like to make, give or receive?
