Another Aqua Assemblage

I confess that I have enough "vintage aqua" stuff to create about a dozen of these! SO MUCH FUN.

However, it sure is difficult to get a good photo of an item framed behind glass. There is always a reflection. These shadowbox frames have the glass permanently installed. Any tips?

Art Unraveled 2010

Here are a couple of the projects that I made at "Art Unraveled."

The first is a shadowbox assemblage which was taught by Annie Lockhart.

The second is a silver wire pin. I know that my jewelry-designing friends will be proud of me for completing this!

The best thing about the event was seeing my precious friend, Darlene, who lives in Florida. We have been friends for a l-o-n-g time.

We also took classes from Traci Bautista, but they were more "process" than "product" and I didn't finish anything. However, I did learn a few things about markers...

The retreat was fun because I tried some new things. I have a new appreciation for collage art and jewelry-making.

And it was great to catch up with Darlene!
