I am a self taught mixed media artist and instructor living in Virginia with my Husband and our family of fur babies. I love all things vintage and strive to use those discarded bits of artistic flotsam and jetsum in my creations. I also love finding those treasures that others can use to feather their souls and their nests so please check out my Etsy Shop as well. Thank you for stopping by.

Very excited for you Lesley! That's a real achievement, and it will work two ways: you will bring to the team some unique and wonderful ideas, and its influence will show up in your own work. I think we are using ice resin in our class at Art is You next month? Can't wait!!!!

I was making soldered bezels today too. Seems like now everything I look at all I can think is how can I use it as a bezel. LOL :) These are beautiful.

Le visage doit être réticents à exprimer ses sentiments, ne se sentent pas gênés. Parfois, souvent une idée, de bonheur et de gauche.
