Welcome to my blog! As I type, studio cat #2, Apollo, is perched on my printer gazing longingly into the back yard. The bulbs are up and a few perennial's have braved our cold western Washington spring to poke their heads up. Hopefully I can now start planting a few things, starting with the peas, they are pretty tough and should be OK. ArtFest starts on Wednesday, hooray! The excitement is at a fever pitch on the Yahoo group. My art supplies has been organized and re-organized several times now. Husband seems to think I will need a tractor trailer to haul them but I have managed to corral them into a managable pile. All my trades are done and I am going to try and be ambitous and make something to display in the gallery. Trades this are shrink plastic charms, here are a few of them:
They were great fun to make, the clear shrink plastic gives a beautiful translucence, which you can't really see here, but when held up to the light they look like sea glass. I now have lots of ideas for future projects, maybe some articulated dolls or miniature books with plastic covers?
