Art Play Date is coming soon!!!

Art Play Date starts in about 3-1/2 weeks! The projects are up on the website and they are all wonderful - we are going to have such a great time!!! Here is my project that will be available at the end of July. Along with the iris painting in acrylic, there will be a variety of mixed media techniques to choose from. You will be able to pick the ones you want to include in your painting to make it your own unique work of art! For more information and to sign up, just click the Art Play Date box to the right and that will take you to my link. See you there!!

And then they laughed in my face...

Did the happy dance just a bit too soon! I thought I was home free on the firing disaster for the first tile. It took awhile but there is a thin crack running in a slow arc. It started at the bottom and went half way in. I looked at it again today and the crack is across the full tile. It appears to only be on the underneath portion of glass (two pieces are sandwiched together). Let's hope it stays that way! It is fully and firmly mounted and grouted in place! Oy, the unpredictability of glass is both frustrating and captivating at the same time. Always a learning experience!
