more of them

I have made a couple more. You know. Those pieces of metal, covered with some paper, which has been covered with inks and markers and paint; and again, covered with resin. I think I am addicted.
So, if anyone has seen enough of my new addiction - time to go visit someone else. For those who still want to see, look below:

This is on brass, with a sweet little honey bee. The reverse is brass - sorry, forgot to take a picture. It has a texture created by hammering and it reminds me of a honeycomb, which is why I decided not to cover it.

This one is on sterling silver. I need to stretch outside of my box in regards to colour. I don't use a lot of blue. But I really like the mood of this one.

I really like how the colours change in the sunlight.

Hi Renate, my favourite is the blue butterfly, although the other pendants are lovely too. This series is beautiful - resin over decorated paper.

Super - Weiter so. Ich liebe diese Anhänger und kann nicht genug davon sehen. Mein absolter Favorit von den neuen Anhängern ist die Biene - ein Traum. Ich bin zur Zeit eher untätig, da stark erkältet, macht nichts - kommt wieder:-) Alles Liebe Inge und einen kreativen Sonntag - oder gehts es zum Flohmarkt:-)?

Personally renate, i cannot get enough! I do not really understand the process of how you meld paper together with resin to metal, but I love the way it looks. You can show as much as you like and i promise will not get bored! keep going with it, I'd say . . .
p.s. i replied to your bell/girl ringing ? on my post as a comment!!
