Lisa Patencio wanted a sculpture that looked like my painting. This is DAS clay with ice resin (she wrote on our Flickr page: “I bought some resin from Michaels. All I can say is “NEVER AGAIN”! I am an ice resin girl.”
Christina Bothwell’s work inspired Lisa to create this figure.
She colored her ICE. Here is a link to the technique!
Inspired by a recent trip to Maui, I’ve created a travel journal to document my thoughts and recollections of time spent in the South Pacific. A tropical place where the water is deep blue against the white sand beaches; the cool breeze, having travelled miles across the open ocean, is the freshest to ever fill my lungs; and each lingering day ends with a sunset that is beyond breathtaking.
“Standing at a northern precipice of the island, surrounded by craggy fields of black lava rock,
I spot a length of huge rope floating in the churning surf far below.
I spend almost an hour mesmerized watching as it’s tossed to and fro, floating on the surface, without ever coming close to the shoreline below.
I let my mind wander, as my eyes gaze over the horizon,
and I imagine a 3-masted tall ship crashing through the waves so many years ago. What a majestic sight that must have been.
The full white sails aflutter. I envision the beautiful, craftsmanship of the wooden hull and the intricately engineered rigging.
Then I’m struck with the thought of the risks those early seafaring men took to get to shore and discover these islands for the first time.
As I continue to watch the rope in action, I am in awe.”

Here is a little taste of one of my metalsmithing classes at Art Unraveled.
Flimsy tables and little anvils mean noise in the classroom. But FUN nonetheless!
Handmade brass bezel + vintage image + Ice Resin = Specimen #1 pendant by Annette in Oz
If you aren’t a metalsmith, the Art Mechanique line has a caged tassel bezel.
My goal was to use all the length of these two ribbons so an award type brooch immediately came to mind.
I love connections and was excited to be able to connect this entire piece including the pin catch together using the two mini screws/bolts.
Additional items used were: a jar lid, book pages, paint, chipboard letter A, copper and steel wire.

For the last 20+ years I have written in a Journal. These Journals sheltered my hopes and my dreams and daily moments of Gratitude. Recently I decided to give something new a try…After looking at all the wonderful Art Journals my friends are keeping I thought what a perfect way to display my Creative Journey…
But one thing you need to keep in mind when working on an Art Journal Page…is texture!
A “Promise” to myself to …
be faithful to my heart…
to be…who I am and love what I do…
To…play and get my fingers dirty…
To…work with those that love the craft of Art as much as I do…
