Here's one of my favourites:
Above is the original image, and here's the digitally altered version I used for this particular pendant:
Once I shrank the image down to the right size I added it to a small wooden domino, and put a green rhinestone on the image before adding a layer of Glossy Accents. And then, after waiting a day or so for the Glossy Accents to dry I was able to drill a hole into the top to add an eye-pin and another hole in the bottom so that I could add a bead accent.
The image is often said to show a belly dancer but in all honesty I think that this is just a very evocative image that has inspired many a dancer to create a costume and mood that has then been attributed to belly dance. To be honest I do love it myself and have made more than one pendant version of this with different colours and accents.
And tonight what do I find as I'm wandering around the Internet but a new blog I can link to, who are looking for vintage images used in lots of creative ways. Yay! So make sure to go and look at the work of some very talented people over at Vintage Artisans and maybe even take part yourself!
