Artful Mental Synthesis

I don't do it very often but wish I did more.

Working with metal, that is.

I LOVE it and have a giant stash of metal and metal working tools to show for it. 

Originally published in Scrapbook News and Review, April 2011

Here's a fun little pendant I made a few months back for a tutorial I did for Scrapbook News and Review magazine.  The tutorial shows how to age copper chemically.  It's really easy to do, albeit it takes quite a while. 

There are lots of other tutorials in the magazine each month in addition to the average of 400 pieces of eye candy.  That's a TON of inspiration for less than $5 a month!!!   I mean, I average around 8 tutorials a month alone and there are 4 or 5 of us who do tutorials so that's a lot of bang for your buck!  We cover a wide range of topics from scrapbooking to card making to stamping to digi to mixed media, everything from beginner to a little more advanced. 

Speaking of Scrapbook News and Review, the August 2011 calls are up!  Check them out HERE!!  Topics such as summer fun, on stage, paisley & harlequin stamps and more.  SNR's goal is to showcase a wide range of styles from beginner through advanced so never discount your work.  You can't get published if you don't submit!!  Come on!  Give us a try!!!
