A First on the Last.

You might have noticed that I haven't been around much lately, that's not because I've given up on my blog, oh no no no perish the thought! I've been a busy little bee. Infact I've been multi tasking, a task us females do with such ease (yer right!) I've been doing a particularly challenging CJ, playing with my new kiln and also trying to get some DT cards done.

So, as promised I have my very first enamelled effort to show you, drum roll please.............

Dragon Fly Broach

I hear you call "Is that the Sizzix Dragon fly that you use so much?" and the answer is YES I was thrilled to discover that I can cut copper sheet on my big shot!

I've used a few shades of green for the wings, I really like the way the enamels mingled together when I fired it. You're not supposed to over fire it because your work starts to go black around the edges, well guess what, I rebelled, over fired it an I like the black edges! It has the same effect as inking on cards, nice and aged.

So there we go a first for me on the last day of the year. I hope you like it, thanks for looking.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
