First is Delila's artwork at Sepia Art Studio ~ everything she creates to me is simply magical.
Her work has a beautiful simplicity to it.
And this is a necklace she recently made ~ isn't it lovely?
You can visit her blog HERE.
Judy's blog The Spice Cupboard featured this amazing Fairy Garden Class that her store,
The Cinnamon Stick had last month.
Aren't these amazing? I just love them and want to make one . . .
This isn't really beautiful but I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite supplies. The adhesive that I use to glue papers onto the plates and platters is Liquitex Matte Gel Medium. You can find it in the artists section at Michael's. And if you use their discount coupon from the newspaper it doesn't hurt quite so bad when you go to pay for it!
Most of the images I used for my last project were printed out from my computer printer. Well, if you apply the gel medium on top of these images it will smear and muddy them. I layered my images using a simple glue stick. Then for my final gluing of the sheet music to the plate, I simply painted on the gel medium to the back of it. Keep a damp cloth nearby to wipe off any stray medium after you placed the paper down. The matte finish of the glue will show up on the glossy plate.
This is the adhesive I love to use to glue my nests in my boxes, my jewelry fragments to my artwork and other items that I glue in place. Like the broken watch on my last plate collage. It bonds wonderfully. They carry this one at Wal-Mart for a great price and you can find it at Michael's as well but bring a coupon to save $$$$!
Thank you all so much for your kind wishes for the Fourth ~ it really was such a nice day for us. I forgot to mention but the two pool jumpers are our two youngest sons!
Wishing you a peaceful, restful Sunday ~ xxoo, Dawn
