Lily pulled the winning name today for my 100 post give-away....Diane Knotts, I need your address!
Again, I'm blown away by your constant encouragement & thoughtful comments. I read every single one & visited as many sites as I could last week. I'm still working my way through the list, finding new places to draw inspiration from.
I know I told you I was busy being Mommy all week...... but I did manage to sneek in some art time. I've been creating some little charms for Heather's new swap. It's all about birds & nests, so I had to play! I made some little chipboard buttons & I'm working on more resin charms.
The new Belle Armoire Jewelry featured a story by Robin Sokel called 'The Mother of Invention'. She gives a detailed instruction for creating your own bezels. I am not a jewelry maker of any sort, but I love to make little bobbles & bits to embellish my altered art. This is my first attempt at her technique.
Since I had the resin mixed, I experimented with some Tim Holtz molds. I love the way this turned out!
This one too! I can't wait to take these a step further.
Since those turned out so great, I thought I'd try old book pages. When you apply resin to vintage book pages the result is very translucent.
I used a candy mold for this.
This piece is made from a printers block, antique photo copy, & mica.
A view from the side.
This project came from one of my very favorite books, 'A Charming Exchange'. Every time I read through this book I discover something new & amazing.
