Have you ever been to a SOLDERing Party???


There were at least ten of us beginners celebrating Cathy's birthday!  We started at 11:00am and I left at 7:30pm. I could have kept on playing.  It was such a good time.  We were given patterns to prepare our art work ahead.  Above i used images from European Papers.  They are 1x3.    We used beveled glass on top an flat glass on the back. Wrapped with copper tape, used flux to help the solder adhere and the final step was adding the patina.  I had so much FUN!!!!  THANK YOU CATHY for introducing me to a wonderful art! 
This is a vintage postcard that I reduced to 2x3.  In the photo you can see the bevel. 
I used Graphic 45 paper and layered a few images from the same piece of pattern paper that I cut up for the triptych above. Below is a picture I took of a house we have rented on our vacation a couple of years ago.  It worked perfect in this triptych!

PARTY KITTY



I joined a group to make a few cards with the "Party Kitty" stamp from STAMPINGTON.  Here are two I didn't send in... I love this stamp! I had a lot of fun with it. 

On the top card I stamped the image on mulberry paper.  The images on the second card were stamped on a page from an old book and a transperancy.
