Hi Everyone!

I am so excited my work has been published in Cloth Paper Scissors...  All of you who are mixed media artists know how wonderful this magazine is.  The house I posted in a previous post won the contest, but now it has been published in the November/December issue.  There are so many beautiful ones it must of been hard for them to pick.  This was my first contest and what a great surprise to actually get picked to be published.  If you get this magazine please look on page 76, you will see my house there.  Second row from bottom, first on the left. There are lots of other great things to try in this issue too.

Divine Inspiration

 Here are two of my new Mosaics that I have been working on.  They have a lot of Religious Icons embedded in the tiles.  The focal points in each center is the Virgin Mother and then various other religious icons through out.  One is with a gold frame and the other silver. 

I got them ready just in time for our First Friday Event downtown Raleigh, with the help from my friend, Jennifer, who so graciously offered her supply of Diamond Glaze to me.  I ran out just as I was to finish the grout beads in one small section.  She saved the day!

Jennifer will be bringing her lovely Photo Jewelry to my store on First Friday!  She makes the most lovely pieces, and I will update with her pictures after our event.

I hope you enjoy them, and they are now hanging in my store.
