Scotland’s Valerie Anderson (bedeckedbeads) has played and played with Sonya Girodon’s free tutorial. With this latest brooch, Valerie puts her own spin on the process with deep watery colors.
And if you look at the side view you’ll see how her curved strips add another departure. When you put your own “stink” on a technique and take off in new directions, you make it yours. Here’s Valerie’s shop.
I’ve run across such an astonishing array of new work that we will have to ponder what’s happening in this week’s StudioMojo newsletter. It’s as if you’ve been unleashed! Are you feeling it? Come see where polymer is headed.
Valerie Anderson ,
Thank you so much for featuring my brooch Cynthia. I had such fun playing with this technique !
Sonya’s tutorial was wonderful to do. So much fun. It is always great to see others interpretation of the work.
Carol Blackburn ,
Good to see you featured on PCD, Valerie. Hope you enjoyed your day of stardom!
I did thank you Carol. I was so pleasantly suprised !
“Stink” doesn’t sound like a compliment; rather, it sounds like an insult. There are so many better words that can be used (in American English, anyway) that it seems like an odd choice.
It looks to me as if Valerie put her own spin on it, her own aesthetic, her own flavor.
