what have I been up to....................

I have been told off yet again for not boring you all with what I have been up to on my blog...... So what have I been up to - well lots - working mainly, also having a few probs crafting but hey we battle on.
I have been doing lots of different things, and I managed to finish 4 of the round robin pages which seemed to take forever to do, and repeated and remade sooooo many times as i wastn't happy with what I had made, but in the end I got there....... I hope.


Well for the I dare you swap i have been playing with some clay, metal, and the soldering iron. The clay plaque to the left is not yet finished, i need to colour and ink it, I have run out of the black clay that I normally use, so have had to use flesh colour, so will take three times as long to do as i need to colour it and then dry it and then finish it - but thought it may be worth showing the picture of the half finishe item. I have made a mould of a watch which is totally amazing, well I think it is




ok so another I dare swap item was to make a brooch from an altered item- well this again is not quite finished but getting there, should be able to post out by the end of the week. I started with a small glass vial thats normally used for samples or vaccines and have put a zettie leg in it, have made a copper background, embossed and soldered to the bottle - and of course took proper precautions with a soldering iron and a glass jar as glass seems to explode when heated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
