Art Gels & Glazes & Brass Charms

What a Week!!!  We learned so much about art gels and glazes........ Glossy Accents, Diamond Glaze, DG3, Magic Glos....... What a confusing muddle of information as to which is the best.  I think we have narrowed it down to DG3 and Magic Glos......  I will be experimenting with Magic Glos this week.

We discovered Tim Holtz charm fragments.  These are used as a base for making charms.

Links have been added about all these products to the appropriate tabs.

I also discovered a great bead shop.  Great brass charms and and stampings.  U Bead It has been added to the shopping page.

And finally, I found a great little dollhouse shop, The Elegant Dollhouse.  I was able to get door hardware for the door I want to make on the cover of Once Upon a Springtime mini.

My Mini Buddy, SkyCandy, has ferreted out some great videos and tutorials to help us on our mini album journey.

Lots of new links added to most of the tabs.  We worked this week on figuring out how to make our own magnifying cabochons.  I found some glass magnets in the $1 bins at Mike's that I could take apart and use the glass topper to make my own cabochon embellishments.  We would still like to find a clear, glass cabochon that is concave on the back so we can add glitter and micro beads for a shaker effect.
