Focus on Life - Week 4 - Create

This week's prompt is create. I love to create jewelry. Particularly, resin pendants. I enjoy making photo pendants with my original prints and I like making mixed media collage pendants with other artists digital art. This is what I have been working on this weekend. It snowed last night and I feel particularly creative when it snows.

  8. I am failing at resisting the urge to say "you call that snow". ok, now that my grumpy old man moment has passed it's really a pretty picture of the snow and I love that it inspires you to create. I've only poured resin a few times but it sure is fun. These are really sweet, and perfect for the season.

    2. Also, in all fairness some of the snow had melted. This was about 16 hours after the snow. :P

  9. Your resin pendants are beautiful!!! I purchased a resin kit a couple years ago but never had the time to play with it. I'll bet the resin is no good by now....

    Too bad because this looks like a lot of fun.

  13. Annette, I just love all of the photo apps out there. I took the pics with my Nikon, uploaded them to my desktop and then mailed them to myself to use on my iPad. I used Vintique to edit the pictures for this post.
