~Its Your Destiny~ Designing with Copper Disks and Proxxon Tools by Sherri Welser




~Its Your Destiny~ 

Designing with Copper Disks




In this new Design Team project for Proxxon Tools create these beautiful copper disks to add to any jewelry piece! I love to mix metals and had these 2 empty bangles that I had added verdigris patina to but didn't add anything else yet. I had a sheet of copper metal and decided to use my disk cutter to cut the round disks out and the Proxxon Drill Press ( TBM 115) to drill the holes for the jump rings.  For instructions please visit the  Proxxon Blog  and lets have some fun making these unique copper disks!

Wearing inspirational pieces always helps to reinforce that feeling of joy and hope.

Doodle Fun Mania~ Creativity Anywhere!


Doodle Fun Mania!

YES you DO have enough time for creativity and art!  One of the things I enjoy doing is to sit down when the family is watching TV  and make use of that time for creativity and being able to be with your family! Doodling is something you can  start and stop at any point ,all you need is a minimal amount of supplies! Many times I take a small bag of pens and my journal on the plane to pass the time and be creative~ it works out great! 



You can incorporate doodles in many thing you do and have varying degrees of doodling in projects. I like to add them to my mixed media projects as well.










One of my favorite doodle projects is to create little fairy houses!




The possibilities are endless! I dont really have a favorite type of paper~ most will work well although you dont want an absorbent paper as you will want the gel pen ink to sit on top of the paper. My favorite white and black pens are Uniball Signo gel pens ans they also come in silver and gold! I also like creating with the Gelly Roll gel pens and those come in many colors ( metallics, brights,neons, souffle etc ) 


 Not to mention ....some white doodling in my black Dylusions journal! So much yummy fun!
So grab some pens and get doodling~ No excuses now:)

Have a Great Day Everyone!
Sherri
