It does take me time to feel that what I'm thinking or doing is worthy of a blog post. I work on my art nearly every day and almost always post photos of my work on Flickr (where you can really zoom in and see the detail) and Facebook. So why blog too? My blog is followed by you (I mean you're here aren't you?) and you deserve an occasional update :-)
I still love my Mandala Beads...generally I work and work on a technique until I feel that I just can't go any further with it. It's right about then that your muse decides to show you something. Low and behold, I accidentally "crackled" some beads and the result is very cool. Guess there is more experimenting to be had...
My first "Mandala Beads and More" weekend workshop was back in January with some wonderful peeps right here in Albuquerque (Annie, Cynde and the gals). Tomorrow, I'm headed to Lenexa, Kansas to spend time with Kim, Donna and their group. I'm sure it will be fabulous!
Anyhow, this workshop in Kansas is coming at a great time. I've had a few health issues to deal with since the beginning of the year and things are beginning to get back to normal. Can't wait to get out of town and active in the community again.
If you'd like to learn my technique for creating "Mandala" crackle beads, drop me a line. I'd love to come to your city too.
