( Its good to be back – I haven’t posted in 2 months… Sigh. )
And its time for the September reveal of the Component of the Month over at Art Elements. This month – Laney has managed to combine adorable and charming as only Laney can. May I present her lamp work “Zom-bees”…
I knew right away that I wanted to wet felt a flower, maybe a brooch. I mean The season is changing – won’t is feel like Fall soon?
So in the interim – my friends and I had a “Girl’s Bead Night” as we do… But hosted by Marsha – it morphed into a felting project. It was the eve of the Autumnal Equinox, and I even baked pumpkin pie. I was trying to usher in Fall even though it was in the high 80’s…
I took ZERO pix during the evening. Food, friendship, laughter… ( Thanks to Lisa for the banner photo! ) Heres the end result:
When I got home I realized – like the lightbulb over one’s head – that my COM was in my hands.
I work hardened a copper wire to form a spike. I coiled a little “sproing” for my bee. With a wire tongue of sorts and a little bending – he was in place! I love the aqua set off amongst the complementary curly locks.
So – I get to enjoy this little fellow til winter comes! Please take a look at the results from my AE team mates and out guests this month:
