You rock!

Or, "You crystal!"

What can I say.  Crystals are so hot right now.  They are all over trendy stores, all over trendy stationary, all over Etsy.

All crystals, e'rywhere.

I started my mineral-voyage when I was playing today (an artist's break amidst rare productivity), and  I pulled out a rocks and minerals library catalog card.  Hmm.  Can't use that for something less than awesome.  So I started with these:

Then I thought, "I should probably make some to give to the book store...":

Supplies and notes:
  • Crystals (and sediments... wait, sentiments... sorry... I went back to geology 101 with Susan Marshall at HSU...) drawn with a Zig Emboss Writer and heat embossed with either Ranger Princess Gold or Custer's Last Stamp in Silver.
  • Crystals watercolored using Dylusions sprays in a mini-palette
  • I mounted the panels onto DCWV's watercolor stack or Tim's Core-dinations metallic kraft-core
I will share these at Make My Monday.  I've never played there before!
