Christmas ornament

I have finally gotten back to doing some eggs. I am working on some ornament eggs now in between getting some classes ready to teach for next year. This is the first one that I made which is a snow babies ornament in a goose egg. I used apoxie to make the berries 3D and also used 2 colors of micro marbles to add more dimensions to the centers of the pontsettias. My focus on this eggw as to add depth inside the egg something that is not easily acheived in something that small as most people just the figures inside without looking at acheiving depth in a diaroma scene.

Two Friend's Chair

Here is my latest creation that I have been working on this week and finished. jean Bernard finally is doing one of her chair classes on line. She is one of my mentors and have waited for almost a year for her to teach how to do her chairs and she created a new style. What was different about this class was that it was more free style and eveyone is making compleeltely different looking chairs.

I was able to use some different products in some places and also had so much fun creating this piece. First I started with only the girl but she wanted a companion and when I got done it was destined to be called two friends. I can't wait to make more of these but it will have to wait for a while as I have other projects that need to be done first. They will be posted as soon as I get them done.

Day of TheDead Mirror

Being that today is the day of the Dead I decided to make another mirror in honor of this day. It is a Latin tradition that remembers your family members. This tradidition is observed not only in latin community but also n the European community we have that tradition to but in another way.

I am not totally satisfied in teh way the layout came out as I am going to redo part of it as my vision did not come out. The background was done using structure paste from Paverpol. This is one of my favorite products of theirs to play with.

Well this is the end of my playing with mirrors for awhile since I am out of them. But I wanted to show my class some other ideas they can do using the techniques they are learning at
