We need today....a filled studio day...

Shadowboxes for classes next month. For my good friends at Mystic & Frenzy!
I promised these a few weeks ago. Almost done. Today.. I promise.

A long awaited studio day ....

Going to lock ourselves away.
Lesley is also going to leave work early.
We need to finish projects, several submission deadlines,
write ups to finish, photograph artwork, respond to emails.

Another look at the shadow box set.

Also more vamp, skulls, sirens and witches for our beeswax collage classes next month.
Above is Lesley's quick example piece from last Saturday's class.

Today we also need to pull and prep for a delicious upcoming class
at Paper Vineyard ( this Saturday).
Marie Antoinette & the House of 3 Beeswax Collage Project.
A quick peek:
My creation

We have been gone from the blog for a few days.
Things have been hectic. Good and hectic.
I have been running a demo table for Amate Studios the last
two days at the Southwest Summer Show here in Scottsdale.

Amate Studios table at the Southwest Summer Show.

Put together several Amate ring
"make n takes" with Magic Glos, UTEE, and mica powder.
It was fantastic meeting so many local area folks, and a few not so local.
A pure pleasure to be able to spend time with
some very wonderful and creative individuals.
I enjoyed sharing different techniques and ideas with you all.

A special thanks to the following for having such
strong artistic passions and a great sense of humor.
You all saved me from slipping into demo coma.
Thanks Debbie, Barbara, Nic and the gang that came over with Rachel.

For those still waiting for resin and glaze notes... coming soon.
I just received several more new resins and a few goodies.
My report on my findings will be posted soon.
Also if you attended a class last weekend... your notes will be going out today.
Talk soon all.
Have a great Thursday!

I'm a new follower of yours, being new to art and blogging, :) but I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely LOVE your art! I'm truly inspired. I love the shadowboxes in this post and can't wait to hear more about your resin pieces! I'm also impressed with how you keep up with your blog in the midst of being crazy-busy!
