Heart Strings

     Finally am completing some parts of my heart strings. I have until the 24th to watch the videos; and, a new 2nd Session has begun at Artful Gatherings - you can check out the classes by following the link in my sidebar - "An Amazing Event, June 2012." My July 4th post showcases my instructor's work (Diane Cook).
     The photo below will at least show you the colors I intend to use - did my "nestie" after work tonight. The lovely focal metal/resin work was given to me by Joy Dibble from Florida while we took the Towers and Turrets class online last year. In fact, she and her husband are currently traveling Alaska and I will get to meet her for tea on Wednesday. Isn't it such a small world sometimes?
     Am still hoping to patina and punch a hole in the thimble tonight. I have a few lovely embellishments that I would like to use; it is a creative process and just seems to take on a "life of its own." Will be neat to see how it turns out. Hugs to all. Karen
