Mystery Swap May 2009 CC Swaps

These are various pieces I am sending to Carol Sweeney today for the CC Swaps "Mystery Swap". These are polymer clay "Brocade" technique. The hearts are magnets and the others are buttons. Debbie Reid & I (And Debbies daughter Sarah) got together on Saturday and worked on these. They were Much Fun! So much I ended up making clay heart magnets as trades for Art & Soul Asilomar this coming weekend. :-) Much Thanks to Adrienne for coming up with this swap!

Below is Debbie top working in my dining room, then Two pictures of me (accident! And I'm rusing off to Pismo Beach for 4 days before Asilomar so I'm not going to redo this post yet. If Anyone can tell me how to delete a picture without completely redoing the post, that would be Great!). The last picture is of Sarah, Debbie's daughter. We might try to get together more Often to work on techniques. :-)

April 2009 IT girl for Debbie

April was Debbie's IT girl month in our Art Venture group. She had seen an Envelope book I made for Carol Sweeney in another swap & commented that she would like something like that for her IT month. :-) I Loved making that envelope book & was Thrilled to make another. I do hope she likes it.
I really Enjoy working with Lutradur. It uses a LOT of seems to suck it up, then leave an interesting pattern of extra paint underneath. Next time I want to pick that up with some blank paper as a new type of background. I want to try some of the other things that can be done with Lutradur such as burn holes for additional texture. I'm really just getting started playing with it.
