I can't seem to stop making these!!  I found the helmet in a charity shop .. but as it was rather big to go on the top of a chunky I took the saw to it and  placed the larger half at the top and the "face" bit on the back 
The sheilds are button/brads backed with leather, metal shimms or charm frames and then painted with alcohol inks.  A couple of barbecue sticks and some foil made the spears.  The rest is paper in various guises!!.

Just a little Tree Decoration for a swap on UKS.  It came out quite well .. a thin metal ring on a hanger with two double sided fir trees attached which I embossed and glittered.

I love making "chunkies", so for the latest round .. no. 4 ... I asked to do two.  These are the result ... I'm not saying who they are for but as the themes are Halloween, Witches, Pumpkins, Skeletons and "dark" things in general, these two could be anyones!!!

I was searching for something entirely different when I found these .. as you do!  I made the barettes from surplus buttons, jewellery and chain ... I had very long hair at the time and these worked a treat.
The little bags are based on ariel photos of a river delta and an African village and surroundings.  Made with silk, leather, metallic threads and hand made braids and tassells.
  I'm pleased with the way the came out. .. though I remember it was hard on the fingers!!
This is the super Domino Book made for me by Rosiemac .... my theme was Oriental, and I think she did me proud, I love it.
These are the cards .. based on books .. I did for an UKS swap.  The "rock on" one is for the host, Sian.  The others , I think, speak for themselves.
