|Frida Pendant Necklace|
I created my Frida Pendant from a Toy Story Memory Game card. I purchased the game at a garage sale on Saturday and I could not wait to alter and repurpose it. I saw so many possibilites!
I tried a new technique for the background. I used a piece of paper torn from a damaged book as a base layer. I then used gesso, watercolor crayons and plain old Crayolas to give the background some color. The Frida image I used is from Dilly Beans. I colored Frida with MS Paint and then gave her cheeks a little blush with chalk. The butterfly is from Dover. The pendant is embellished with two black metal snaps and one shiny red rhinestone.
Altering this game piece was so much fun that I can't wait to make more!
I am entering this pendant in the following challenges:
The Stamp Man - precious metal
Stampotique - #261 alter it
Paper Play - #33 upcycle/recycle
Dilly Beans - bright colors
Card Makin Mamas - try something new
Allsorts - #168 heavy metal
Please visit the above mentioned sites and take in the wide assortment of artwork.
