The above picture is of my first resin piece, made at Amy Duncan’s Art Party entitled Rendezvous with Resin. I had never been to one of Amy’s parties and I gotta tell you, it was a blast! Amy is an excellent teacher and an amazing artist. She has a lovely, well organized studio space that we worked in and she provided all the materials. When she is not teaching, she is creating fabulous mixed media pieces, using recycled materials and her own photographs. She had a booth at a recent art fair and we were fortunate enough to buy one of her pieces, which sits gracefully on a wall in our entryway. To learn more about Amy and her company Four Corners Design, check out her blog HERE. Throughout her studio, home, and garden she has lovely displays of found materials like this little vignette near the door of the studio.
It was also a thrill to meet Martha Traas (sewfabmartha on Instagram) who participated in the resin class as well.
The great thing about meeting online friends in person is that they don’t feel like strangers at all. I feel like I’ve known Martha for years!
Here we are in the studio with Amy giving us instructions on how to pour the resin. It was such fun and Brian & I are already talking about other things we can do with resin.
Another thing that happened this last week was the transition from Summer to Fall and I have been seeing the signs here and there in the garden.
Leaves are turning from green to yellow to crimson.
My Japanese Maple is dropping its seed pods and some of the leaves are already dried.
My purple Clematis has already died back so I need to get out there and cut the dead vines back and tidy up its container.
We’ve had such a lovely Summer. The best one in years. But I’m ready for cooler temps now. How about you?
Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m linking up with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds today. If you get a chance, check out her site. So many beautiful images there.
