Forget Me Not

Forget Me Knots are blue, us the flowers drove the color combination of this art doll. I created her hat using a pronged ring bezel and sealed the flowers onto it with ICE Resin.

I made her to remind me of the good memories in life. (Thanks Mom! Know you are watching.)

May good memories fill your life!

Wanderlust by Tina Schiefer

“Wanderlust – A strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world”.

Today, I think we take the speed of travel for granted. Super Jets fly us over oceans, our GPS systems allow us to traverse the freeways of the world and even text messaging skips through multiple time zones in milliseconds.

This piece is in remembrance of a by-gone era, and those who explored our beautiful earth from the seat of a swaying train.

I used a round staple bezel, mica sheet and ICE Resin.


“Happy Heart” Video Tutorial

S.L.K Industrial Chic ready-to-use line at Michael’s is FULL of amazing pieces. Each piece can be to assembled to, embellished with, even stitched with. Every item is full of possibility and what I love most is that one might think these pieces are for jewelry making alone, but I think they can be used in scrapbooking, altered art projects, journal add-ons, clothing accessories and in my case…used to create a small assemblage.

As this is my last post for Ice Resin, I would like to take the time to thank Carol and Kristen for their help and support throughout the last year. I would also like to thank my fellow team members for all the kind words of encouragement. I felt so honored to be included in such an amazing group of talented artists. Thank you Kathy, Tina, Joanna, Lesley and Michael, Cindi and Andrea.

This week, we are formally introducing you to the members the ICE Resin® 2012-2013 Creative Team!

Jen Crossley is an Australian mixed media artist and highly sought after instructor. Her art is truly unique, incorporating many a found object, vintage ephemera, metal she has herself etched, resin and much more. With a true eye for detail and the ability to see past a rusty bit of metal, Jen is able to create assemblage pieces, tiny books and jewellery from this assortment of pieces she collects.

Jen’s career has now taken her abroad where she realised her dream of becoming an internationally recognised artist and began teaching at the Art n Soul retreats. Her work has been published in a number of Stampington’s magazine publications as well as Seth Apter’s book “The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed” as one of the 31 featured artists.

Jen’s pieces conjure up images of times gone by …. which is the apt name of her blog, A Mark in Time.

This post marks the last of our Creative Team introductions. October 23 a new year for Tech Tuesday begins, and October 24 is the first date for a new round of Creative Team Wednesdays.

This week, we would like to formally introduce you to the members the ICE Resin® 2012-2013 Creative Team!

For those of you who have followed the ICE Queen Zine, or you will have seen Cindy Cima Edwards’ jewelry in a prior post.

With a BA in Fine Arts, Cindy has always sought artistic outlets.  In 2002, she started scrapbooking with her daughter, then in 2007 discovered her passion for Jewelry design.  Being fascinated with jewels and stones from an early age, this just felt right.

Cindy’s first necklace creation was a gift to her mother Rita, shortly before she passed away.   Rita loved jewelry and certainly would have reaped the benefits of Cindy’s new hobby.

Her inspiration comes from many sources, including color, texture, nature, art beads, magazines, books, and her super creative daughter, April. Copper, brass, inks/colorants/patinas, and vintage elements are favorite mediums.  Experimentation is the rule.  Her newest passion is working with ICE Resin.

Cindy has been published multiple times in various magazines including: Bead Trends, Stringing, and Jewelry Affaire.

Cindy lives in North Central Arkansas with her husband John and a small herd of animals.
