Butterfly Garden In A Vintage Skate

Hello friends!  I just want to let you know up front...that I have been playing with  my "Tinker Toys" again!  LOL!  I was looking through my Graphic 45, "Olde Curiousity Shoppe" collection and found the perfect inspiration for my newest project.  "Butterfly Garden In A Vintage Skate".
Here's a peek at the paper that inspired me :)
The Vintage skate is beautiful with the ever so vivid peacock feathers.  So, here's where I began the journey with my Tinker Toys!  I had a ceramic shoe, peacock feathers, moss, G45 Butterflies, Embossing Powder, paint, Tinker Toys, and a vintage typewriter (YES!  That is what the tinker toy skates are attached to...a piece from a typewriter.

The little rollers for the skates.  I've used G45, Metal Brads in the center of each roller.
Painted balck and embossed using, Rich Gold Pale by WOW!
So, there you have it!  My Altered Mind never rests :)

No, your altered mind certainly never rests, Jan. I just don't know how you keep coming up with such unique and clever ideas. This is SO cool. Brilliant wheels you created from Tinker Toys here.
