Published in Polymer Café Magazine - August 2010

A few months ago I submitted an idea for an article in Polymer Café magazine. I’ve been reading the magazine for quite a while and enjoying it greatly. The bracelets I submitted are a series I did using sculptural elements and glass cabochons from the floral department of a craft store. What a thrill to see the article. I think it turned out great. Some of the pictures I took, some were taken by my husband and daughter. Great work.

The cover shot of the mask is by Ann Kruglak, also a Mile Hile Polymer Clay Guild member. Several of our members have been featured in the magazine. Lots of talent in that group.

I’ve got some more ideas for submissions, which I’m preparing to send in now. Crossing my fingers for future publications.

New Blog Layout

I've been working on improving my photographs and invested in Photoshop Elements 8 so that I could edit my photos. Using my old photos, I've been practicing with the features of Elements and playing with changing the background of old photos, cropping, as well as using sharpen and color correction. These older photos of my polymer clay pieces were used to create a collage and I’m using that collage as my banner. You can see my new blog now; below is my old blog. I'll keep working on this of course but I've learned a lot so far.
