One day while I was playing with the Golden gels and mediums and brass stancils, I found a really cool way to use the Distress Crackle Paints.  I took a palette knife and scraped the paint from the brush inside the jar, I then spread it across my brass stencil--it was great!  It crackled so nice.  I like the brass stencils but haven't really used them alot but now...a really cool medium to use with them-they sky's the limit.   This was a stencil I bought at a rubber stamp convention and is a Dream Weaver's stencil.  Although you can't really tell from the picture, the birds are wondrfully crackled in black soot crackle paint.
The picture below also uses a Dream Weaver's Stencil.  I l-o-v-e the dragon, he is big and bold and very intricate.  I used the fired brick distress crackle paint on him and is so cool because he looks very dragony and scaly.  All he needs is a little gold stickles on his eyes.
So get out your brass stencils and look at them in a new way!

I made this cutie from the Beauty in Beads book below by adapting one of the patterns to use the products I had on hand at home.  I was surprised she didn't take very long and I learned a new version of the peyote stitch-the two drop.  It's too bad it doesn't scan better to reveal the shine and movement of the delica beads.
I made this little beauty into a pin, but after that I realized she would be a really cool pen or pencil topper.  The circumference of the bottom of her beaded body will fit over many types of pens or pencils to guide you into your fantasy writing-perfect for a journal writing instrument!  You could adapt it to fit your special pen.

This butterfly was also hand beaded on cardstock.  The vibrant blue color is not portrayed well on this scan.  I finished these pieces with leather on the back and added a pin back with bail to use as a pin or on leather cording as a necklace.

This was a polymer clay face I had laying around and I glued it to some cardstock and started beading around it and then ended up with this crazy hat or hair-this was one of those surprise pieces- no particular design in my head- just ended up this way.


ATTN:  MAC Users & Ipod Phone Users~
For some reason Mac/Ipods & Paypal do not work well together.  For some Mac & Ipod users, the Paypal cart will dump after several things are added to the cart.  I might suggest you write the item numbers down that come up when you "add to cart".  If it does dump, you can call -740-477-1238 or email your order c_byers1@msn.com.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I have notified Paypal of this problem, but so far it has not been fixed.
 
 
 
PLEASE make sure your Paypal ADDRESS is CORRECT before placing your order.  Thanks!  It also helps to have a correct email address if I need to contact you re your order.  Thanks.
 
~International Customers~
When checking out with Paypal, please add your phone number.  The United States Postal Service is requiring that for all international shipments now.
Thanks
ANY large dollar order~~
The shipping on every order goes up with the total of the sale.  Many of the things are small so the larger shipping is not warranted, so then I refund the difference.
If you have a question on shipping please contact me at

This does not apply to the standard shipping charge-just the larger orders when the shipping charge is at higher cost.
