Silver Bella Classes I

November 22, 2010

The classes were absolutely amazing at Silver Bella. It was nice to expand and challenge my creativity. I took the Eclipse Bracelet, which was taught by Sally Jean, the guru in all things soldered!As she taught this class she said over and over that if you aren’t happy with it “Embrace and Love It”. I am really taking that to heart and learning that is alright to create something that isn’t perfect, but I can love it anyway. It was a challenging class, but with the techniques taught I hope to grow and get better. After this class, I headed off to Lisa Kaus’ class. I knew I loved her collage artwork, with her fun vintage feel. All the beautiful colors and dimension she achieves in her collages are stunning. I just loved playing with the watercolor crayons that Lisa had there. It amazed me how they can give an intense color and soft watercolor look by adding water. I so want to incorporate this into my artwork.

Tomorrow, I will be posting a vintage inspired Glitter Star Ornament on Joli Paquet site. Hope to see you there…

Have a creative day friends.

Since I had never soldered before, I had plenty of opportunities to "Embrace it. Love it." :-) And I've found myself repeating that phrase several times, since. :-)

Both pieces are very pretty! I have worked with water color crayons before and I love them - they are so versatile.
