This picture was created with Friendly Plastic and WOW Embossing Powders using my own Hand-made Silk Papers which I have been making for some time now.

I used  real silk fibres to create the backing papers and incorporated other fibres for effect.  Iv'e embossed the papers too with WOW Embossing Powders to add glitter and sparkle. I made a mould from a real fossil, added air drying clay and let this go hard, painted it then I could incorporate this home-made fossil into the work.    

I also embossed a real shell with WOW Pearlised Embossing Powders and incorporated both the fossil and shell into Friendly Plastic, which I also added WOW powders to.

Both embellishments were then added to the picture. I love mixed media as it gives you an excuse to use up everything exciting in your craft kit.


Friendly Plastic Necklace and Earrings.
I love Friendly Plastic - its so adaptable and can be used for all sorts of lovely items -  Iv'e made a pair of earrings and a necklace using Green Metallic Plastic and some Gold Metallic Sheet.

I stamped into the F.Plastic with a DoCrafts V & A stamp which had a very small intricate pattern on it. The colour of the plastic changed and became much more irridescent.
Nice surprise as now I can't wait to  see what my other strips of plastic look like now once I stamp into them.
