DragonsDream TIO #64 - Impress It On

Posted by PicasaAs I again failed to be mentioned in the New Year's Honours List, I thought I would make a gong of my own! Only kidding ...
Santa brought me a Melt Pot and this tag is its maiden outing. I have used an Elusive Images peacock feather stamp and coloured the impression with Perfect Pearls and fixed a gem in the centre of the eye. I found using my Melt Pot to be totally absorbing and would be grateful for any suggestions and advice with regard to what I can make. I can see it is going to take up a much bigger part of my crafting life.
Thank you for visiting and your comments are very much appreciated.


  1. WOW Janet, this is much nicer than an official award. Lovely use of your feather stamp. Perhaps I should consider a Melt Pot.

  2. Janet, this is awesome. I haven't the faintest idea how to use a melting pot (is this encaustic?) without burning down the house. That is if I even had one. You lucky girl, having some new, exciting toy to play with! I was thinking more of Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey's Harriet for my So Artful. But I guess Wilkie Collins works too.

  3. Thats gorgeous Janet, its really beautiful! I'm a Melt pot newbie too but I found this tutorial
    if you fancy making some beads, I had loads of fun making some :-)

  4. This is so lovely Janet. The colouring is so elegant. Glad you are enjoying your new toy. Suzie Weinberg has videos on You tube. This is one it will lead to others

  5. Love the tag Janet. I've recently got a melt pot too and had fun making some pendants from memory frames.
