Charmed


After seeing some of the fantastic charms people have created I was itching to have a go and so I orgainised a charm swap with a group of friends. Making charms is a new thing to most of us who are taking part, but from those I have seen so far it promises to be a very exciting swap.

My charm is about 4cmx3cm in size, alcohol ink background, collaged dragonfly and stars and then the whole thing is enclosed in acetate.
