Odds and ends

Here's a collection of odds and ends of things I've been playing around with over the last few weeks.  This is my journal page ready for July.
I altered a mint tin here: coloured with alcohol inks and added a bottle cap and some ideaology bits. There are micro beads filling in the bottle cap and beads on the lid and cord.
I bought this tin of pins because I liked the tin with its polka dots but I decided it needed a little label on the lid so I stamped some calico with a Tim Holtz stamp and the pincushion is a Hero Arts stamp that I stamped and coloured separately on calico and then ironed on with bondaweb.
And finally another apple: I traced round the largest and smallest nestabilities and outlined the shape with stitching.  The fabric is some I tie dyed a few years ago!
