oooo Ellen I like the colors and the shape, very pretty.
Juls, wow that red is fantastic and the turq, well thats my fav of course.
Ky, lovely bead, such pretty flowers.

A friend and fellow beader suggested I do my Redrum idea in Blue, so here it is. I could not decide between Baby Blue or Bright Blue enamel so I just did a bit of both...LOL

Just when I think it can't get any better. I open the showcase and you guys prove me wrong. Wonderful work everyone. One of the best ways to start my day.

these are mine that I made for the this land exchange. I am still learning to post pictures. and I am still a newbie. so they do not compair to anything that ya'll have done. but it is my contrabution,
http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/13-Jun-2007/102807-000_0048511.jpg
lets see the center 5 are just pressed disks with iris's on them, the white with the black and gold circles are supose to be "gold records" and the blue blob looking thing is Elvis's blue suade shoe. and of course the T for university of Tennessee. I do lack a little in stringer control. Thanks for letting me share.
Have a great day.

Wow, you guys are on a roll today. I really wish I could take the time to post to each one of you. But I am sure you will forgive me today, I am off to have lunch with our Miss Ellen, yup the lady who started todays thread. I will give her a hug from all of you.

Ok, to make Janie Happy, these didn't just come out of the kiln this morning, this is what the Glass Fairy worked her butt off on all night so I could look good to you all this morning :evil: :D

Have a wonderful day everyone, I sure am planning on do just that!

Dilly I for one want to thank the glass fairy. I did a little copying on mine as I had worked for weeks and never could get them to look just "right". looking at your flowers the other day gave me the hint I needed for my iris's. Hope you don't mind. And thank you.
I am not sure that you guys realize the inspiration that you are or the little things that you do that we newbies (at least me) see when you post your glass. What I have learned here is fantastic. and I my day is not off to a good start if I don't get to see the showcase first thing.
So thanks to all that post on the show case. I appreciate your art and the little things that I learn each day more than I could ever express.

Thanks, Amber. I feel like I cheated, though, since I didn't state that the base of the mask is polymer clay, not hot glass. Since the whole thing is covered, it seemed a lot easier to do it that way ( plus I don't have the skills to do that in glass anyway, lol)

Still working on my pic taking abilities; Dilly helped me today so I wanted to see if this one was better than the one I started today's showcase with. A bit.

Ellen....I think it's looking great! Was so great to see you today.

Sharyl....I am going immediately over to the lobby and start a "they copied me thread" Then rant and rave. JUST KIDDING! Thanks for the compliment, I am glad I could be of help. That just pushes me to go farther and learn more. If you have any questions let me know!

Don't sell yourself short Wendy... that is one fabulous bead you made there :clap:... that you made it on a Hot Head is even more amazing... but regardless ... it's a GREAT bead and you should be very proud of it.

Thanks Dilly, go rant and rave. :) I just might join you. and take you up on that offer one of help one of these days. beware. I am at the point where this art needs to pay for its self and that is not happening fast enough.

Picture looks great Ellen and I personally like them both.

Wendy great bead. you are doing great, keep up the good work.

Helen I can't even think about fall yet as it is about 90* with high humidity here. Fall is not until late Oct or early Nov. here most years. We don't even close our pools until the last week of September.

Ellen:

Do you have a macro function on your camera? Also, are you able to adjust the white balance? Thirdly, are you using a tripod? All of these that I mentioned should be considered and you would have a great picture.

Lovely work everyone!

Wendy - your bead is awesome! You should not be calling that pretty a nothing, because it is really something!
