Have you done much work with resin before? I just made a batch and they never formed right. I was thinking it was humidity. Have you ever had that problem?

It's possible that it's humidity. I have had a few instances where my resin projects didn't cure properly during certain weather conditions, like when it rains heavily for several days at a clip.

Is that a real (but obviously expired!) seahorse in resin in your avatar??? Where did you get it (the seahorse, I mean)?

It is indeed a real seahorse! A few years back a friend and I were walking along the beach looking for shells. After about ten minutes of combing the sand I spotted the wee seahorse skeleton half tangled in a clump of seaweed. I encased it in resin soon after to avoid accidentally breaking it. For a while I kept it in a drawer as a good luck charm but last year I added a silver bail and now it's a unique statement necklace. Smiley

These are really pretty and I like them all. My favorite is the center tear shaped one.

Thanks! That is my favorite one, too. Smiley

Wonderful idea and great fabric! Smiley

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pressed Flowers on: June 13, 2010 07:34:30 AM
I've never made pressed flowers before, so I decided to give it a whirl. Because I wanted the colors to stay as vibrant as possible, I tried to use only brightly color flowers from my garden. They were pressed in wax paper between the pages of a heavy book for six weeks at the bottom of a pile of other books. I'm probably going to eventually embed the violas in resin to make a fancy pants bracelet. Not sure what to do yet with the rest of the flowers. Smiley

Made these pendants last week. Just added the bails this morning so the glue is still drying. Will post an updated photo of the totally finished product later. Smiley

They're resin with various components including abalone, pearls, beads, vintage rhinestones and a pinch of fine iridescent glitter for added sparkle.

Thanks, glad you all like the photos!

Where in the world did you come up with chocolate bells?  Did you save any of the seeds?  If so, maybe we could swap, because I have saved all of my seeds from red bells and California wonders.

I don't have any more seeds and didn't save any this year, but they sell the mini bell pepper seeds at the Seed Savers Exchange in a couple of different colors including the chocolate. www.seedsavers.org. Hope this helps! Smiley

Everything looks just fantastic! Smiley

I especially love the garlic, it's so pretty. Is it hard to grow? I've never tried was thinking about it for next year.

Despite a very rainy summer in New England we still managed to have a really nice garden this year. Smiley

For some reason not much luck with squash or cucumbers but everything else was thriving! Some tomatoes...

More tomatoes, some eggplant, peppers and a lone lemon cucumber.

Some cherry tomatoes and tiny peppers.

Squash with the blossom still attached.

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / My first ATCs, vintage collage theme on: September 09, 2007 11:50:19 AM
I finally finished my very first ATCs. I went with kind of a collage look. Smiley

Can't wait to make more of these, they're really quite addictive...

(* post edited cause I actually made more this afternoon! LOL * )

Oooh, I really like these. I should decorate the chocotoff can I keep my brushes/needles in as well. Can I ask what materials you used?

I used a technique similar to mosaics but not quite - so it's a bit of grout and some glue as well. Smiley
