There are no rules on this being a January only thing...Feel free to continue writing, posting images, sharing. I'm thinking I might this time.
Much love and appreciation to you all!

|Fun experiments with supplies, first with red/orange ink and then water colors.|
|Just water colors|
|Yes, lots of vinyl block prints! Next, crazy fun colors! Thank you Bobi for the Art a Day January Challenge!|
I am hoping I can apply this to the great out doors. I should probably do a few more but my pear was getting too ripe and changing color ;)

|For the month of January, I wove 32 hours, only 96 hours to complete the weaving! I moved the bobbins out of the way for this picture.|

Cards are coming along.
Each is unique, contains at least one copper heart and it's own story. ie, "Totally Bound to You," You, Me and the River" etc.
The 'card' is made from vintage photo album pages and the envelopes from old player piano scrolls.
18 or so prepped thus far.
It was fun. Everyone did such cool things. There is a lot of talent out there. Thank you for inviting me and thanks to all who shared.
Please "like" my page on Facebook. I am trying to get my work out there and that is not an easy thing to do.

|These will be drilled and riveted to the front of cards and act as the lock or clasp.|

The colors are coming through more garish than they really are.
|First the heart shape is cut from sheet copper and sanded. |
Then I draw the jigsaw lines and saw out the connection.
|Filing off burrs and rough spots followed by sanding.|
|Sanding with 1200 grit. |
Not so much to refine the finish but to make edges comfortable to the touch
