Ice Resin Ice Resin Ice Resin

Ice Resin........ where have you been all my life??????????


Well I Karen Garrard am officially an Ice Resin Junkie*****************

I have managed to used a full 16 oz in the past month.
Below you will find just some of the pieces I have created.
Did I mention I am hooked.
Did I mention I have just received another 16 oz, so look out for future postings with Resin in them.
This is the only Resin I have ever used and I can highly recommend it. It is easy to work with and has a low scent. My favourite so far would have to be open back bezels using tape, using material in my work, and images.
I'm off to watch some more YouTube Videos and experiment some more.







Oh and what fun I have had.

Here is a cute little mirror I bought about 10 years ago from an Antique Store. I took a cast of it and am making some copies to use in my work. 

Enjoy whats left of the weekend everyone:)

New Arrivals

Hello again,

Just trying to catch you all up with what I have been doing. These are some new goodies that have arrived lately and some beading I have been working on.




There are some Sales Tax Tokens, Vintage Vacuum Tubes would you believe, Optical Lenses, Brass Bullet casings just to name a few. Now for the hardest part to decide what they will be used for. 







These chains are by no means a work of art, but I am enjoying working with them. All the beads and sequences were given to me by my lovely Auntie Mieke who no longer had any need for them. It was time to pull it all out and have a play.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Back in a jiffy.lol.

Happy Birthday Oma


I would like to extend a very Happy Birthday to my  beautifully glamorous late grandmother. 
Loved and missed very much.


Wanderlust-Zentangle

Hello and welcome,

It has been a while since I have  posted anything here, things have been very hectic , but hey the good news is I am back and I have a sneak peek to show you.
This is a little  something we have been working on in the wonderful online class WANDERLUST. I have had so much fun creating these I think it is fair to say I am hooked and better still these little works of art are so easy and relaxing to do.





There is still time to join in all the fun if you would like to. Here is the link HERE

Have a great day!!
