I am shrinking!

It's true, the older I get the more I shrink.. even my son says I am getting smaller, and I ain't that tall! But in this case this weekend, I shrunk a whole lot more! Saturday saw one of my Shrink Plastic classes at Pickleberry Papercrafts. It was a small intimate class, with lots of silence while everyone concentrated, but such fun :)) I loved every minute, thank you Rosemary, Carol, and Beth for putting up with my madness!
Everyone made bracelets using a very random technique, and then we made canvases ( no pic 'cos I forgot to take any of the canvases , which were so creative!) but I did take a "show me your hands" picture!
Love all the different bracelets, even though everyone used the same technique!
Here is my take on a shrinky bracelet using Tim's Alterations, and one stamps (the open sequin waste background) and printable shrink plastic, which is so versatile as you can use any ink on it at all even distress inks!

Have a very creative day!

Beautiful bracelets.
When I had my knee replaced my consultant told me we all start shrinking at about 25 so there is no hope for me at all cos I only ever reached 5 foot! :-)

Fab art jewellery! Great ideas there which have inspired me to make myself a pair of dangly earrings.

I want to know why it is that we shrink up and down and not across??? Anyway, I love your bracelet, it's a wonderful idea and looks like it came from a top jewellery shop.
