It’s nothing some new art supplies can’t fix

I took Monday off for some crafting time, and it was very much what I needed.

I broke out my wood-burning tool, glitter acrylic medium, beads and more. Monday opened the door to wanting to create, and that feels good.

These wooden circles have been sitting around for ages. So, I took some stencils, traced some images and got to burning. I’m not a master, but it is fun.

I used iridescent gelatos as water color. Very fun and relaxing. I do need to do something with the back sides and then seal them before they will be featured as pendants.

Mostly I’m trying to use up some of my inspirational bits and bobs. There’s no sense starting from scratch.

Here’s a quick visual journey of the rest of my week.

Here are a fe off the earrings that I colored/painted/glittered up and embellished with crystals. These are four of the more than a dozen pair I completed.

Here are a variety of pieces that needed to be strung, fixed with resin, beaded around, altered or assembled.

The top right two pieces will likely go to mom. I feel like I did very little to construct them and just can imagine selling them. The open circle on the bottom right is made from glitter, resin and dried flower petals from the roses I got when Slinky passed away. (sigh …)

While I was fixing a few pieces with resin, I finished a few more that incorporate foil, glitter and dried flowers. Oh! I bought a primrose yesterday and already have petals tucked away in a book. I also bought some seeds to plant that I will grow, then pick, then smash, then turn into jewelry. I’m ready to get that ball rolling.

Lastly, here are the journal covers I showed last week. I have a hope they’re salvageable. I have some ideas, but that’s what I said seven days ago. If they’re notsalvageable, that’s why the art gods gave us gesso!
