A Sleepy Kind of Sunday

When I am feeling like I want to make something but the old creative juices aren't up to 100%; I like to make " dog tags ". The base metals are silver, brass or copper with slightly folded edges. The edges allow me to pour resin over the pictures to preserve them and give them a glass like permanence. Images are little collages and of course, they can be stamped with metal stamps and then antiqued. Pretty cool. Fast, easy, fun, just the kind of craft I need on a sleepy day!

By the way, it is a gray, cold, wet day here in the Pacific Northwest with snow in the mountains. The temperature is warm enough down here though that everything and I mean everything green, is growing with wild abandon!
