rebecca carter kautz: I made the mini tag books out of polymer clay, Fimo, specifically. I brushed them with Pearl-Ex after I stamped them but before I baked them.

marsha siddoway: 'Legacy' Attic Treasures
This attic treasure started as an empty tin that was hammered, bent and twisted to give it a sense of history. The base was either painted with black acrylic or covered with salvaged paper. The top too was covered with a brown leather looking paper.There is a wax seal on top imprinted with a brass 'M' from an old printing press alphabet. The interior has been lined with packaging from a favorite paper arts store. The tin is filled with a Queen Victoria collage (under the lid), replicas of old photographs, money, documents, Victoria as a child matchbook, tiny treasures and other various souvenirs from a world of make believe. Images were printed on old, naturally aged paper found in a thrift store photo album. The lace was aged with fire and rinse water from watercolors. Scent was added to complete the illusion
