I got busy with substituting, co-leading a brownie troop of 25 girls, being a Mom to three kids, husband working 7 hours away.......so something has to give. and it was and has been my art.
But, I did manage to pull off charms for a new swap with a new yahoo group, artcharms. I signed up innocently to make charms with the theme of blue, white and silver. and the list of swappers grew and grew....until 38 signed up. 38! a little more than what I was anticipating. But it was a deadline that would FORCE me to create. Sad that I need a deadline, but true these days.
So here are some pictures from the charms that I made, some attempts that I didn't mail and some that are to be developed some more.
These are the charms in process. I formed wire, added polymer, UTEE and ephemera.....twisted wire and these are waiting to have beads added and some sari silk (which I am LOVING!!!!)
The finished charms. I am pleased.
I had an idea to make these felted circles, add some crystal white and clear beads. Did not finish but plan to, I think these have some potential.
Playing with making balled headpins without enamel. I like these. again, potential.
I am still playing with these disk shapes and adding words.
Hope to be back on here again soon.
Which also means I am playing with some of my projects!
