Tests = Lessons Learned

Test One, Test Two:
Front, back

These two pendants are the best of the test subjects so far. I played around with using original art on paper and prints under the glass and I will continue to explore that, but I really like the look of these one of a kind reverse paintings/mixed media pieces. I worked with layers of acrylic paint, tissue paper, acrylic gel medium/varnish and a decorative paper backing. The whole look that I'm going for and the right materials to make that happen isn't quite there yet, but I learned a lot from these test works and they serve as a good taste for what you can expect in my Etsy shop shop very soon.

I wanted to write and tell you about a new forum for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with no commission taken). The site gives you a gigabyte of space to showcase your portfolio, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself, it would be greatly appreciated! You can also link to it on your site! Thank you!

All the best,
Shana at

Very nice. I think it shows your devotion to producing great work, that you're willing to do many tests before finalizing a new idea. Love it.
