It's a whirlwind around here right now.
With the Create Art Retreat in only 2 weeks! And an Ice Resin Design team application deadline the 15th, as well as some magazine deadlines, I'm so busy I don't even know where to start.
I thought I would share some art I got done this weekend...
A mixed media assemblage piece. I used Ice Resin over a collage of antique ledger papers, antique photo, and ephemera inside a found rusty metal ring used as a bezel. I also used an old water key as a bezel for the leaves of the flower. I collaged and painted the inside of an antique candy tin that I removed the cover from.
My next piece was some collage and paint work with a heart design. I used a glass heart shaped bead as a bezel and filled it with Ice Resin. The background of the heart was some antique German text that is so pretty. I love how you can see some of the blue color through the text in the heart when the light shines down. I really love that about Ice Resin.
And I got the chains and beading done on some of my soldered pendants.
I was also working on some displays for my vendor booth at Create. My friend Lydia came over and helped me bag little bits and pieces and art parts for mixed media. I was working on clipping them to the display to see how I wanted to do it. Thanks Lydia for all your help! Hugs!
Lydia and I got lots of collage packs tied up for class kits and for the vendor fair...
I even went through my button stash and made up some button cards...
It's a lot of work but so worth it. Can't wait to see everyone at Create!
I hope you are all having a great week!
