Trudy McLauchlan



Trudy McLauchlan's
TRUDY McLAUCHLAN's charm began it's life as a collaged Artist
Trading Card measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches. The card was part of a
swap with the Theme "Dream Time" (and who hasn't dreamt of flying
with gorgeous butterfly wings?) for the 2005 Melbourne Paperific
Expo.

Using a vintage page from a store catalogue, circa 1930s, Miss Leah
McKinley was proudly photographed due to her winning the judges 1st
Prize of Beautiful Bathing Girl Competition! This image was scanned
through the computer and reduced in size, given butterfly wings and
other paper collage elements.

To then transfer this ATC to charm size, again it was scanned and
reduced in size on the computer. Trudy then glued the image to a
shop-bought brass frame with loops either end. To give the charm a
glass-like finish a layer of Papier was applied to the top of the
collage.

After a fun and lengthy trip to the bead shop (you can't rush some
things!), two coloured beads were added to the bottom of each charm
to add a dangly, frivolous-type finish to the Bathing Girl Butterfly
charm. These beads were very fiddly to thread so Trudy enlisted the
help of some little fingers, daughters Zoe and Margot were part of
the making of these charms. And they think they're going to wear it
when it arrives in Oz!!

hi Trudy,
Love Butterfly girl and love how you did the resin over it. Each and every charm is so special, thank you so much.

I also want to know where to get the frames. I want to make charms with my grandmother's and mother's wedding photos in them and can't find frames. Can someone help?
