Small things thrill me! I love to make miniatures!
OK, so here is an example of something tiny I worked on while embellishing issue #3.5 of my art magaZine Beau Ideal. These are tiny replicas of 2 of the inserts in my 'zine.
The mini book, is a mini version of an already mini zine. I call them zinelettes. Well this is a micro version.
The mini purse is also a micro version. Do you know how SMALL these are???
Look at the following picture of them ON A DIME! YES! A DIME!!!!

*I am so thrilled!* I used my big fingers, and was able to do this and many other goodies by hand!
They fit inside the mini charm version of my zine. The mini zine is 1 and a half by 15/16ths of an inch!

Amber,
You're the BEST BEST BEST!!! And I've told you that before so you know I'm not saying it just to get the charm. But PUH-LEEEESE give it to me. Gimme gimme gimme! You know how badly I wanted to be part of the mini-book swap and couldn't, right? (I hope extreme whining gets you extra points...) {{grin}}
Your biggest fan in all the world,

Amazingly small. You must have a great camera to take such a close-up.

Amber Dawn,
Obviously you are an amazing artist and I have a feeling I will learn alot from you. If I win, I would like to donate this charm to the member that is ill and in need of a bone marrow transplant. While I would love to cherish this item for myself, I believe it would mean so much more to her and her quest to live. Cathie-chicago

Hi Amber,

I saw your post on MMCA. I love your jewelry! I think I would need my glasses and a magnifying glass to make something so cool and so small.
