Sally Russick is Beauty of Flowers! I'm all over this one! My daughter recently had her Senior Banquet and on the tables were potted orchids from Manchester Craftsman's Guild; all the girls got to take an orchid plant home! This is a flower on her plant that I mixed up a little with Pixlr on my phone! I love that app! Just wish I could see a bit better to use it lol! Head on over to Sally's blog to see the rest of the photos!
Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!
