Okay comptuer problem is fixed and the new computer almost ready. Yay!
Being computer limited actually was a blessing in disguise this past week. It forced me into the studio to distance myself from my computer frustrations. And a flurry of creation took place!
Some of you know I love bottles and that I've been decorating and selling them for quite some time. And I love a good bottle class.When my friend JoAnna of Mosshill Studios offered her soldered bottle class in the Spring of 2009 I was there front and center and I posted some of my soldered bottle creation here on the blog.
A couple years ago I saw Zinnia's bottles in a mutual Ning group and was taken with her bottles and her beautiful color palettes and textures. You know I am a layers and texture kind of girl! So when in all my surfing I somehow ran across information leading to a Ning site called Roses on My Table a few weeks ago I had to investigate (you know I love flowers too). I was thrilled to see it belonged to Zinnia and she was teaching her Mixed Media Bottle online! Oh joy joy! I signed up on the spot.
But until this week I hadn't allowed myself any creating time. As I said, blessing in disguise. Zinnia's class is wonderful! Her videos are clear and plentiful and her voice is sweet. Her generous teaching style is right up my alley as she gives you plenty of information and shows you step by step exactly how to do everything and then some. Zinnia offers quite a bit on her site, she has classes, she has swaps, even for youngsters, and her Information Library (R.A.I.L.) consists of brand new monthly videos and resource updates and absolutely worth the reasonable fee for a year long of videos and techniques.
Tell her I sent you. ;-) She's a sweetheart!
Here are some close ups of the bottles (above) I created this week.
The next three bottle are only 3 inches tall.
I had a BLAST!
Happy Saturday my lovlies...can you believe it was snowing here just a bit ago. Unusually early, even for us here in the mountains.
