On the One Powerful Hourthe challenge is to make a Christmas ornament in one hour.
So take your pick - these took an hour each to make - over several days though.
This is the reverse of the bamboo tile below. I can see a left side of a face in my marble-ing - can you? I can see half her face peeking out from a door - an eye, tip of her nose and half a mouth - and the has an old fashioned hair style - long and wavy right down to her shoulder.
Oh - now on the right hand side of her, I can see a young child (boy?)with hands in the pockets of a long white coat that reaches down to the floor - over dark clothes.
His head is tilted downwards as though he is looking at the floor,and he/she has a floppy fringe, or it might be a hat. To the right is a white wall like the side on the house and he/she is walking on a white pavement. LOL Or is it a man in a white coat coming to take me away!
Its a pure fluke
Does that ever happen to you - seeing faces etc in clouds or flames or wallpaper?
Each little tile has at least three layers of varnish - some have five coats.
This little lady I have made into a mobile phone charm.
Each coat of varnish takes 24 hours, at least, to dry.
And I can only do one side at a time obviously.
Although some images appear on more than one tile - every single one is different. I put gold or pewter leaf on them, beads or charms, to make them all individual.
They are such a joy to alter - and patience is needed - in bucket loads.
I have been experimenting as you can see - and not all of them are Christmas themed - and not all of them are finished yet - so come back soon and see how they all turn out.
