(photo taken with my iPhone4) Given to Patti as a gift... 10 minutes after completion! Wowee!
Finally, a start. First of all I had to clear my work table of my sewing machine and gobs of related items; now, I am set to begin torch work after a picnic to celebrate the 4th with friends. As some of you know, I am passionate about beading, bookarts, and photography (thus the two wonderful printers and two monitors)... I am so fortunate that these mediums go together with mixed media bookarts. Meanwhile, the jewelry class is with Deryn Mentock. Even with my part-time job, I am also taking a coinciding photoshop course with Marie Otero (both classes began on the 24th and there are links to the artists on the right column of this blog). Yeah, more posting to follow. Happy 4th everyone.
