Bittersweet Cherries


Ah well...sometimes you should just leave well enough alone. I was "tweaking" my blog and LOST all my previous posts. Power surge? My goof? The universe telling me to create new stuff? Whatever....so no tears shed...it's a new beginning, a fresh start.
I've been enjoying painting again...a renewed interest of mine and I will probably post some up here as I finish them. Maybe.....have to see if I can still paint. LOL!

I made these pretty beads when Gayle and I were at Lucy's making stuff. She is doing a demonstration on this technique at our next altered art group but I was impatient and and asked for an early lesson. She's such a good friend :) These were the result. I love love how they turned out. They remind me of bittersweet chocolate and cherries. I am going to use them on the cover of my aRt jOuRnaL. I've been taking a journal class with Pam Carriker and that has really helped me loosen up and enjoy being creative again.

Awww...so sorry you lost your posts! That must be so frustrating!

We had so much fun making the beads! I love your pink theme with yours - can't wait to see what you create with them. :)

Hi Nan!
Thanks for posting on my blog. I had the opportunity to take a class from Trudy once and passed on it. Dang! I regret that now! I live in ND and not too many big brushes come my way. She was going to be in Winnipeg which is only about 3 hours away and I just didn't make it. I LOVE her dreamy technique but have never quite been able to achieve it.
Sorry you lost your blog! I love your bittersweet cherry beads!
Have a super day ♥

They really do look good enough to eat! (YUM.) Can't wait to see your art journal; I was blown away by Lucy's. Hey, bummer about the blog posts disappearing. :(

Oh my goodness!!! You're incredibly calm about it, too. Kudos to you, I'd be in tears and depressed for weeks. I'm so sorry this happened to you!

I love your beads! I've made some of these in the past, they're fun! but I never coated them. That makes them look so much more yummy. I think there's an article somewhere in one of my Cloth Paper Scissors back issues on making these.

Enjoy your journal classes!

Hey Nan, me again...you know, all of your previous posts show up in my Google Reader, can it be they're not lost? There MUST be a way to recover them ?????
