Bright Eyes

You know those magnets you get with the witty or sentimental sayings in them?  I had a couple spare.  I'd got all I was going to get out of them so I put them in the charity pile.  Then I thought, well hang on, I can reuse them instead.  The 'lid' pops out and there is just a square of paper inside. 

I did some experimenting with gelli printing on the perspex 'lid'.  I used the paper square as a template and cut a piece of silver mirri to have behind the neon print.  (Note to Self:  Next experiment with printing straight on to mirri... surely that would be a cool effect too...)

On the front I added 'bright' in Amy Tan stickers and had some neon crocheted lace made by my pet crocheter (er, not sure what my Mum will make of that new nickname!) which was the perfect embellishment.

Entering at avenue 613 (not using the optional twist... had enough of winter and needed something brighter!!)

I love it, it is ridiculously bright  :)


  1. I have some extra magnets that I have been planning on altering, so thanks for the reminder to do it! Love your magnet! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥
