I took three classes with Barbe Saint John. I just loved the classes and got so much out of them. And what a hoot Barbe was. She is such a great teacher and person and the classes were so much fun and informative. Thanks Barbe....for the great time and memories.
Here are a few of the pieces I made in class using a lot of my favorite found objects, game pieces and watch gears, etc. They had a lot of stuff available to choose from but they had also told us we could bring some of our stuff so I did. There were some in the class who liked what I brought so, of course, I had to share.
This is one of Susan's Bezels. It is quite substantial in size and weight.
I brought this pocket watch case from my stash that still had a few parts in it but I added the key and the watch gears. My intent was to add the resin to the whole thing but I had a happy mistake and some of the resin ran away. I am sure it would have been great full of resin but I love that only part of it is there. You really have to see this in person to see what I am talking about. I absolutely love how it turned out. And since I love it so much, you know I probably won't be able to duplicate it in a million years.
This is one of my flattened bottle caps that had been colored with alcohol inks. I put down some papers inside and then added the gears and resin. And, in this one, some parts of the gears are actually above the resin which I like a lot.
This was a bezel that was provided to us in class. I used some of my Tim Holtz papers as backgrounds. It is one of the Bingo papers and where the real bingo piece is was a picture of a Bingo chip. The dice is actually sticking out of the resin which looks cool.
I can't tell you how much fun this was and I can't wait to do so much more with what I learned in Barbe's class.
Have a great day everyone and would you believe it is 80 degrees here.
