Art Camp - Part 3 - Some of My Art

I had a lot of fun making this junk pin and will make more when I have time. The key is from my first suitcase, the black buckle from one of my old bra's, 'be' is from my first attempts at resin and the rest of the trinkets seemed to gel.
I painted this apron in Jane's fabric painting class at camp - what a lot of fun!
The button bracelet is very similar to one I saw in Step-by-step Wire Jewelry I have loaned my copy out and can not remember the name of the artist. Watch out for an edit to this post.
This is one of my designs and features recycled hooks given to me by the kind and talented Doreen.

There's no end to your talents! I love the junk pin with all the little bits and pieces of things. The apron is great, too and of course the bracelets, especially the one using Doreen's hooks. That one is very creative!

I love each of them. They are all so unique. You are so clever (and so generous with your knowledge Julie)...

It all looks so good...makes me sad thinking about what I have missed this year. I am loving the jewellery though and what a great idea with the buttons - as for your Nina knots..well I think I have a way to go to get mine like that LOL. BTW I got 1.5 hours sleep last night...toilet training is going as well as I expected but the nights better improve real soon. You don't want to know what the bathroom looked like this morning after he was alone all night!!!

I agree with Ev, those Nina knots are perfect!!! had to laugh about the hat and head size in your last post - we all have big heads in our family too - join the club.

I just LOVE your junk pin! "Be" was my first resin attempt also, in Susan Lenart's class.
Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, I know things will change, they always do!
