Hanging frog mirror

Here's something a bit different!
Some of you may be used to seeing my "splattered fairies" which I make from polymer clay.
But here's something new for 2009- Polymer clay splattered frogs!!
I hand make the frogs- no molds used( just nimble fingers!!), then mount onto cute decorated wood hangers with a mirror.
Couldnt get away without using my scrapbook supplies- so you should note the kaisercraft daisy rhinestone embellishments at the top!!tee hee!
the heart is about 18x15cm plus the ivy hanger which is about another 8cm or so
This is my last heart shaped design available- special price $15 plus postage.
As with my scrapbook stuff I wont make another one the same!!
hope you like!

Oooh lookie here!!!
I have just got a new shipment of 2crafty chipboard supplies in!!
They are a new australian company with a fantastic range of new and fresh ideas.
Their products are cut using quality Acid and Lignin free Chipboard (or box board as we know it), so you can be assured that it is safe to use with your precious photos. It's perfect for covering with patterned or cardstock, paints, inks, dimensional magic and other finishes.

I've put a sample here of how I've used them!
I base coated the chip in crafty notions spray, then decimated my box of lace and used some wishmade earings as the eye's background and then covered the wing in collections french vintage paper.

As I get time I'll be popping more raw chip here for sale ( as well as my premade goodies!!).
I'm just finishing some mini canvas's with owls on too, which will be available soon

The first offer is for these really cute owls.
there are 4 in a bag- 2 are plain 3d ones and 2 are lazer cut.
I have 5 bags available at the moment
$7.50 per bag plus postage
just drop me a line if your interested

happy crafting
