George - He's Cool Like That

I'm not going to lie, here, folks. I really love this one. This was a slightly different type of piece for me and I had SO much fun creating him! I am totally going to be doing more pendants like this in the future. It was just too much fun to quit now!!!

So, here he is: George.

George Pendant


*sigh* SO FUN!!!! No, for reals. He is a fabulous stamped image from Scrolls Work stamps! I don't know what it is, but he is just fabulous. His demeanor is just so....sooo..... yeah. That.

The thing is...I can't really categorize this one. Would you say this is Steampunk? Hmmmm....not sure. I don't know. Perhaps it doesn't matter, but I love it no matter what it is! HA!

George Pendant Close


I stamped the image on muslin with StazOn ink. I love how even the details show well!

George Pendant (Charm Closeup)


For the charms, well, I basically took out my Tim Holtz (for Advantus) stash and went a little crazy! The circle clips are Close To My Heart, but the pin and the charms are all Tim Holtz! I attached them using a copper wire that I had around.

George Pendant (hanging)


He hangs beautifully! George makes a great decorative pendant, but he is actually small enough, that if I can create the right chain, I could totally wear him as a statement necklace. He's cool like that. I mean, yes, it would be bold and all, but, well...I'm cool like that, I guess. Just say'n. HA!!!!

Soooo....that's what I made last night! What did you make? What do you think of George? And...wait for it... last question...

...aren't you wicked glad that tomorrow is totally Friday? 'Cause I TOTALLY am. Just say'n.

I am joining the following parties:

I really like this! As soon as I saw George, I thought of ornaments made this way.

Jamie Lane said...

You are AMAZING and George is pretty cool too. Great project yet again. And YES sooo happy Friday comes tomorrow :D

Regina said...

George is AWESOME!!! What a unique idea to use your stamping with. I love the safety pin...very cool. It would take a bit of patience but I think linked chains of the copper would make a great necklace so you could wear him.

As always....Jingletastic!!

Hugs,
Regi

"My darling George,
Mother and I so enjoyed the lovely dinner we had at Highknoll Manor with your enchanting family this past week's end. It was terribly kind of you to invite us. I look forward to seeing you again at Lady Astor's soiree tomorrow's eve. My dance card will be filled with one ~ and only one name ~ and that is yours.
I remain faithfully and forever yours ..."

Stamping George onto muslin keeps him looking cool and masculine...I like the clean lines.

I love the texture in this! Oh George, you have such a sweet place in my heart. Hope to see this on the Sunday Art Therapy link party this week at Seeds on a Breeze.

George is a great image, he is such a Toff!
It can be steam Punk if you want it to be, I doubt the SteamPunk police will be knocking on your door for it!
A Lovely pendant Jingle :-)
