Altered Bottle Caps
Someone introduced us to Geocaching the other week and we have had loads of fun with it so far. Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. It should take you to places you wouldn't normally go and see.
I made these small tokens to leave in some of the larger geocaches. I set a picture in the back of each one using liquid embossing gel and the blue cover on the outside is texture magic, a dimensional paint, and fixed some small beads in it before it dried. The strings of beads are on a metal thread embedded at one end in the gell. I do hope that the finders like them.
