I made this tiny 3"x4" journal out of left over painted and stamped red rosin paper. I then embellished the front cover with my leftovers from various projects. The pages are card stock weight paper that resembles chipboard. This will be given as small hostess gift and was a great way to use up more of my stash. It went together fast, because most of the work was already finished.

I created this rusted Altoids tin and then partially covered the top and base with rust colored painted paper towels. I then covered all of the rust with Golden matte gel medium to prevent the rust from flaking off. Once it dries, it still gives the look of rust without the mess.

Simone from Germany and I had a trade that consisted of a fabric atc, a puzzle piece and a small doll. She also sent along a pink inchie that is just adorable and the first fabric inchie that I have received. I love the doll with the stamped face and she also included some of the fabric she used so I could give it a try. The back of the doll is also made from a rusted fabic that she created. I'm going to have to give that a try. The atc has a crazy quilt base tlhat has been beaded. The puzzle piece is set off with a vintage photo and some glittered and felt like embellishmets.

I've also included a photo of the extra goodies that she included and just saw that I forgot the two most importat elements that were beautiful flat rusted leaves, so I've added them in separate photo.

Thank you Simone for a fun swap.
